  4. Wait until the roots come out of all sides in your current pot. Your plant being 1-2 feet tall would also be a good idea.

  5. I'd put them into their final pots now. I've read about transplanting into successively larger pots but that doesn't happen in nature and they do just fine. If they were recently transplanted into those pots you might wait until they grow enough roots to hold the soil together.

  6. Ok will do, when transplanted in final pots should I still kinda shade them or let them go and take full sunlight!

  8. hi 'Cactus Ed ,,in a away i agree with what you have said ,which if the op had been a grower before would be ok ..but i think he is a a new grower ,and a lot of new growers tend to over water the plant if its a larger container ,,( or under water it ) ,,so myself i'd pot the plant up jut one more time just to get a bigger root ball ,before the final potting up ,,,mac

  13. id wait till the root start to go around the bottom of the pots or till you see roots coming out of the bottoms of the pots ..mac..
     
  14. I transplanted one as an experiment to see if it would survive straight into a 30 gal pot no gradual moving up. The other 2 clones that are going into the 40 gal pots I’m going to follow your advice and wait til I can see roots at the bottom....here’s some pics of the transplant[​IMG][​IMG]

  18. If you have a place with partial shade you can put them there for a couple of days before full sunlight. If not you can slowly let them get accustomed to full sun over about 3 days. I put out a couple about the same size as yours the other day from T5s into full sun but in a spot that only gets full sun a few hours a day and after 3 days I put them in their final spot and they've done fine. You can google hardening off for other opinions about how to go about it.
