Nug of the Month: Apr 2019
So, I consider myself somewhat experienced with autos. With that, I’d add that my autos take about 5-10 days to bounce back from a stunt. The plants always finish, It just takes longer.
I'll drive it up this weekend.Why not? It will get rootbound, as the water roots circle the perimeter of that plastic pot. Lateral root growth is not being encouraged while those roots keep growing.
Personally, I would drop it into a hempy bucket with 100% perlite.
That's an excellent point about transplanting a photo in flower. At that stage it's on a similar schedule to an auto. Thanks for that bob!Transplanting AUTOs... same as any other plant. IF you do it right there's very little stress involved.
I am under the impression that when AUTOs main root hits btm then it triggers flowering.
I'm not too sure about that, it kinda goes in line with a lot of stoner science. Not too much actual science out there that I have found....
I wood just transplant if thats what you wanna do. The point to transplanting is bigger plant?? I'd go for it, cant really hurt anything as long as you are careful transplanting.
I've transplanted flowering cannabis plants that were 3-4 feel tall and root bound. They seemed happier pretty much right away and never skipped a beat.
Can't really see what the difference is between AUTO and PHOTO flowering with regards to transplanting. I've grown a fair amount of both types of plants. I always just grow AUTOs in a #3 nursery pot and up-pot seedlings to that #3 final container. Reason is I don't get any benefit going to a larger container, so less work for me.
In the name of Science! And for @Scientific who hasn't been seen since he was disqualified from January's MOTM.I’m with bob.
If its good and dry enough to slide out of it’s 1 gal cleanly then the inverse sand castle will work a treat I reckon.
And will have an even better chance of success if you remember to sprinkle the mycorrhizae in the hole and on the root ball generously before it goes in
I think you’ll get a bigger plant than leaving it in the 1 gal (which you would have to water all the time anyway ). I’ve read in reputable places that a lot of root growth happens in early flower, on a photo-period plant at least. I would hazard a guess that the same goes here. DO it so we can all know
Wait dynamo, I'm confused. You already said don't transplant and now it sounds like you're saying it again!I revise my suggestion to wait, did not realize it's an auto. I've learned not to stress my DDA auto's or they will flower immediately .
