Like a tomato plant?

when I put my tomato seedlings in a bigger pot (4''-5'' tall ) I put them in the soil about 2-3'' deeper, cause the roots will go out from the original stem - is cannabis the same ??

No.
notice the "Hairs" on tomatoe stems? when buried these hairs will become roots. mj will not root out of buried stem.

I think this will work just fine. Was planning on doing it on my next grow.

Works great with tomatoes, less great with peppers (both nightshade family)
I tried that with a few clones in rockwool once....had endless problems with the 50% that survived.
I figured that if you could root from a cutting you should get new roots if buried deep.....did not work for me.
Personally, I don't expect to ever do that again.
Just my experience....

Ok, THANKS Im getting conflicting answers. I will have to try it, I understand that clones do not get deep roots- in dirt - I thought this might help
Thanks
