    If you don't fuck too much with the roots yeah it can be done with minimal stress. It could lenghten the flowering a bit, but that also could mean a bit bigger harvest if everything else in your environment is good.

      That's a huge jump in pot size, for a plant that's about stopped rooting. At this stage, I wouldn't bother. Certainly not 5 times bigger.

        Are the plants too small for the 1 gal pot? Does this strain usually grow to be really big - because if not, I wouldn´t bother with such pot change.
        I´ve always read over and over again from other growers that you shouldn´t mess once they´re into flower because it stresses the plants out...

          I think too it's too much of a jump. Should have done it near last two weeks of veg? And the new FF will have nitrogen nutes?

          I have issues this time with big pots from the start using a 3.5 gal; wide as 5 gal but shorter. Won't do that again. Too much soil at first is hard to get the right nute mix going, especially with two different soils, especially with two different strains. :( It takes too much water for runoff, and then takes 3-4 days to dry out enough for another go.

          But I plan on doing the solo cup>2gal>3.5 gal near end of veg.

            hey thanks... the reason i waited as i wanted to know if they were males, which get pulled , or ladies- i think this run, i'll leave em be in the 1 gallon pots- i have already taken 1/2 dozen cutting of each, so if one... or hopefully both are 'elites' i'll pot em bigger next time....

                It's best to up-pot just one size at a time. One gallon into a 3 gallon would work, however planting in a 5-gallon pot will raise the water volume. way too much for flowering. If it were veg it would work but not for flowering. 😎

                  5 gallon in soil is way too big IMHO. The 3,5 gal ones are as wide but not as tall. 2,5 work good but get thirsty when in the flowering stage, might have to water twice a day.

                    I have repotted 2-3 weeks into flowering with no problems, and the plants have rooted into the new soil fine, but i agree with others that 1 to 5 gallon is a bit of a big jump that may cause waterlogging in the soil.
                    Also, there is a difference between '2 weeks into flowering' when you are sexing a seed plant.. when flowering may be only just starting... and '2 weeks into flowering' with a mature clone that the sex is already known. Flowering doesn't really start straight away when flipping an immature seed plant to find out if it is m/f

                      hey.... thanks for message.... the '2' i was thinking of transplanting are indeed from seed- i started em in solo cups, and then into the 1 gallon pots- didn't want to go larger as if they were males i cull em as don't have a lots of space in a 4x3.5ft tent-
                      i have another '6' clones (incl two diff of your bubba kush's) that i have in 5 gallon pots - and they r doing great- i'll post some pics once there is something to see... be safe

                        Sure you can. Plants always like more root space. They will go through a couple days of adjustment but the burst of growth and flowering once recovered is well worth it.

                        Above someone posted the roots are almost stopped growing. This is utterly false. The roots grow throughout flower. Otherwise when transplanting before flower and roots filling out a giant pot would not occur.

                        And lastly Switcher. You have 7000 post of utter bullshit that never adds anything to a conversation. Your post are the kind that make people feel dumb for asking questions. Just keep your nonsense to yourself. Planning ..what a dick thing to say. Go troll people on Facebook yo. Smh

                          i do a similar thing when sexing plants.. leave them in the smaller pots until i know if they male or female, and then up-pot as soon as i have found out. There would be no way to fit them all in otherwise ! i go from a 2 litre pot to a 6 litre pot so not quite such a jump, but it works fine for me. As lester says, the roots continue to grow all through flower.. maybe slowing down a bit towards the end. you may be ok going 1-5 gallons with plants that have just show sex..just be a bit careful not to leave the soil too wet for too long as they root into the new soil.

                          yes i'd be interested to see the bubbas.... they enjoy plenty of root space (and a bit extra veg) so glad they are in big pots!

                            Our plants grow a healthy frame and root system, until turning their attention to reproduction. That is why you transplant before flower. Because you have about 3 weeks left after 12/12. With two weeks already gone, there is just one left before the plant has done stretching out in all directions. Of course, there can still be vegetative triggers right through flower. A lack of P for instance, will cause root elongation. However, I will quote you back to yourself. The final transplant is done in veg.


                            I have also done it a couple of weeks in, as I needed more water volume. It caused a growth spurt, which is plant steering towards veg. We want restrictions to steer a plant into bloom.

                              f-e i think we would all agree that, in an ideal world, we would transplant before flower, but in the case of the OP, he has had the plants on 12/12 for 2 weeks and they have only just shown their sex, and many people will regard the day that the plant shows sex as day 1 of flowering despite the previous 12/12 period. with my limited space i transplant into bigger pots at this point very regularly, i always check the root growth after harvest and i have never experienced a lack of roots in the pot. The practice may cause extra stretch but this can be an advantage if you are able to deal with it.
                              I have also transplanted mature plants from clone up to 3-4 weeks in flower with a modestly bigger pot and again the roots have populated the new soil every time.
