Is it necessary to start my seeds in a small container and then transplant to a bigger one? I have seen people use party cups as their starting container and then transplant, but is there an advantage to doing that instead of starting them in a larger pot such as a 3 gallon? Thanks for the help

No way!
You need a first step befor you take another,so what im saying is if you put a seedling in a big pot of soil the soil will stay too wet for a long time.
not to good pluss its a waste of soil and food
Also it will grow at a snails pace,better to form a good root base in a smaller pot befor hand....

i always start in a party cup first, this is to make a nice root base. if started in a huge bucket first, the plant will grow slow and the root base will be a little weak. I usually start in a party cup then to a 3 gal.
you know when its time to transplant when you see roots comming out of the drainage holes.

Yea always start in a small container or pot just because the root base will always be stronger..

Its like a fish is thrown in a huge ocean(the final container) compareed to starting out in a small fishtank (beginners cup)
