Low Stress Transplanting.....

There are a lot of us that use plastic beer cups for seedlings....

Here is a method you may like to prevent the occaisonal root damage we get when transplanting....

I use 2 cups.... one is the liner.... the bottom is removed and cut up the side of the cup.... top top cup is doubled and contains the plant....




When its transplant time I remove the plant and the liner from the bottom cup.....

then I pull back on both sides of the liner to unstick the root ball....

then put the plant and liner in the larger container...2 gallon here....




fill dirt around it then hold the dirt in the liner pull up and remove the liner leaving the plant.....





Not rocket science.....and short and sweet......


I would have called it LST but thats taken.....


lol...

I really should have done this for my current grow. They haven't even sprouted yet, but I am dreading the day when I have to take them out of their clay pots for transplant. Oh well, I'll remember it for next time definitely.

A lesson i learned the hard way,they don't like being transplanted about 3 or 4 weeks into the flower cycle.Luckily they didn't die, but came close..

How I Transplant...........

The candidate, a 4 week old seedling that has been raised under 12/12, showing female today.



Put some soil in your pot.




Place your pot in the middle of the new pot to make a mold.




Fill and tamp into place.




Remove your mold pot.




Your left with a perfect mold.




Take your transplant candidate and support the soil with your fingers and press on the bottom of the cup and the sides very gently.





Your cup will remove away leaving a perfect soil ball.









Simply drop it into the mold without disturbing the fragile roots.









Smooth the soil and press the plant down gently.




Transplant is finished with no stress.
Grow on!

I'd like to make a suggestion..........

Give the 9 oz. opaque plastic cups a shot. I punch 5 holes in the bottom for good drainage. Your plants will do well in them and be more managable. Also I let the cups dry out to where the plant is slightly wilting from lack of water. Just an hour before the transplant I water the plant to run off. After I make my mold with just barely moist potting mix, I can handle the 9 oz. cup as it were a plug and plug it in, as it were. Then I wait for the plant to show me it needs water. Usually 3-4 days, then I drench it and wait for the next wilt (just about). It's a mild wilt not an extreme one.

I absolutely mangle the rootball. Often, I cut the sides off like in the bonsai thread. I've also done a soil to dwc where I washed the all the dirt off the rootball under tap water and trimmed off a lot of the fine roots. It was a reveg and it took a couple weeks to start growing again.

From my experience, I don't understand why people make a big deal out of transplanting. It seems to be a non-issue.
