Hey man well there could be a few reasons that it stops growing after a while in that pot, i don't know what size you had it in before but yeah at this stage in the grow it would be worth while just to do one last transplant into the final pot. There are a few reasons it grows better after you repot it. First is space for the roots to grow, root growth is closely realated to plant growth, also fresh supply of nutes from the new soil. Anyway yeah got for a nice big pot and tell us how things go

I would say the minimum size you should even deal with is a 3 gallon bucket or pot. Take note, that the larger your pot the larger, and faster the plant will grow. Last year I used only 3 gallon buckets. My plants would hit about 24" fast, then really struggle to get larger. Im now using 5 gallon plants and my ladies have hit 24" in veg and seem to be doing great! Transplant as few times as possible, twice at most is a rule fo thumb. Once from the little cup or what it germinated in..into a small pot to hit a few inches (6-7) then into its final home.

You'll have to wait a while for either the pre-flowers to show or you put it into the flowering lighting.

Preflower can come as early as 3rd week of veg to as long as week 6 of veg depending on strain and grow conditions...With my strain and CFL setup mine were there by the end of 3rd week/starting of 4th...
