My roots are starting to pop out the bottom of my 5 gal fabric pots. I totally didn’t expect this to happen so soon! At about a week under 2 months in veg from seed. So I just ordered some 15 gal pots and a bunch of soil and bat guano and worm castings to mix up and transplant.
My question / problem is it will take 4 days 3 nights from now to receive all products ordered… I noticed the bottom big fan leaves have been dying the past few days and was looking for pest or disease. Looked under today and saw a decent amount of roots penetrating thru with only 1cm max out.
Anyone experience having to wait 5 days to transplant after finding this out? I figure worst case Ill get the soil delivered late on the 4th day.
Just lightly watered them tonight after throwing 4 red solo cups of worm castings under each pot for roots to have a medium to grow into in hopes of creating a healthier environment for penetrating roots.
Will try and get some photos tomorrow as its 3am rn.
Anyhow, Im kicking myself for not buying everything earlier. I live near no hydroponic stores and everything had to be amazon’d haha.Excited I decided on the 15gals vs 10gal which i was originally thinking. My reasoning is I plan to veg for 2 more months exactly from now then switching to flower on 420.
I figure the 15 should be perfect timing to avoid root bound in flower! in worst case scenerio Ill throw a foot of soil at the bottom of my tent and set 15gal’s ontop of the soil for roots to have something a little deeper to penetrate… HOPE to avoid that! But again, anyone have experience trying this?
