2 Plants in one large pot?

  1. I read that if you grow two plants in one pot there is a chance one or both of them can die. My friend has 2 female plants in one large container. Its about 2x1 feet wide and 2 feet high. Both of the plants are 3 weeks into flowering. The first one has cyrstals and bud growing. The second plant is still growing tall and hasnt started to bud. I hope they dont die!
  2. Crap, well it is a little late now. Two weeks is when I think all transplanting should be stopped especially when you see crystals. You can risk re-planting and separating but, that is a risk. I guess if they are doing fine now just leave it. Next time just plant one seed per pot and watch how much better the plant will do under the same conditions otherwise.
  3. There is nothing you can do now. By now the roots are all tangled together, just let them grow. Do you think they have seperate pots out in nature? They aren't gonna die.
  4. what you can do is get them out of there cause one will eventually take over the other and the other one will just mostly either stop growing or get a low yield

    you can cut around the rootball when they get a bit bigger that way you wont distrub the root system as much

    there will be some shock but your better off doing it here very soon rather than waiting longer

    cut around the rootball into a circle in about another week and get them into there own pots
