    You’re a lucky man…that Bio Terra Plus is better than anything. Don’t delay, no reason they shouldn’t EXPLODE…:-)

    Clones and new seeds are always placed into nursery pots, use only a good, balanced potting soil that won’t burn your baby plants. Keep them there for few weeks till their roots get established.

    Great Info M&M, if you cant afford nursery pots you can use 14-18 oz. solo cups. They even make pots out of plastic bags these days, sometime’s if I have to or have a fast rooting and vegetative plant kind of like Blue Dream or a Space Queen I place the rooted clones straight into a 1 gallon plastic bag or pot and let the roots get established in them before placing into the next larger pot.

    Moving from one container to the other is also a serious step in plant growth. If the transplant is done poorly, the plant can suffer from shock, in which the leaves will turn yellow, wither, and eventually die..And if done carefully, it will allow your plant to reach maturity rapidly with minimal support and care..

    Im new to growing too so I used clear solo cups so I can actually SEE the roots growing, BRAVEHEART – you keep telling me to use bigger pots so for my latest crop I wanted to know….when they are ready for their last transplant rt before I start them flowering can I use my 16 GAL blue plastic tubs as planters if I cut lotsa holes in it for them to drain? Hubby and I figured 4 tubs would fit in there nicely and that would allow them tons of room for their roots to grow…what do ya think, would they work ok?

    I like to grow in large pots too. Keeping my numbers down and growing larger plants is fun. I always drill dozens of 1/4″ holes in the bottom. And even make a ring around the side near the bottom. More air to the roots and better drainage. Freestanding water is the kryptonite of healthy roots.

    You don’t need to fill the pots to the top. leave room to make it easy to water.

    Just remember, it’s useless to use a large volume of soil unless you intend to grow a root structure vast enough to fill it. A minimum of 3-4 weeks of vegging will be required. And you MUST use microbial inoculants regularly…:-)
