I hate transplanting, and I love Air Pruned root systems. So I do this.

The paper towel pots stay together once they have soil in them and don't disintegrate until after I get them in the ground. Once the roots get established, they're quite firm and movable.

I took the idea from this video. He uses Toilet paper but they're pretty small pot.

've always wondered about the negative effects of transplanting, even if only done once. I try to avoid it (hence one of the reasons I plant seeds directly into their final holes), but your idea does seem quite interesting. Although any possibility of rootbinding due to the pots is also a concern of mine. Even if they don't get full-on rootbound, I wonder if they start to sense the boundary all around and adjust their course for growing accordingly before even reaching the boundary itself. (This is another reason I don't do the traditional starting inside a plastic cup deal)



I agree its better to start in the final spot. The reason I like a cold frame is I can start early and protect my seedlings until the get larger for the transplant. I even like to set up the cold frame early to give the raccoons a chance to fuck with it if they are going to.

The reason I wanted to use peat pots is the fact that if they stay saturated on the outside of the pots they break down so in the 2 weeks they sit out the roots will start to grow right through and there is no risk of dropping plants when trying to get them outta pots or solo cups or whatever. I've lost roots due to those situations and would rather just set it and forget it kinda lol. And I've never had a problem with a transplant unless it had damaged roots from the transplanting. I saw those paper towel pots and they look like a great idea seems like it would be much cheaper than peat pots. I'm going to see if i can make my own version with stuff i have. I actually thought of using a modified version of the watering system backcountry described were you use a bottle like a cat/ dog bowl and that way the water won't run out until it's needed because of the balancing pressures. We've probably all seen it when an animal drinks outta the bowl then it refills automatically. I can probably use that same function and not have to worry my clones will have moisture available. And with the holes they won't float away if it rains. Ideally I could take cuts from a designated plant all year provided I find one spot that I can have somewhat frequent access to. Then all I have to carry in is a gallon jug with the cuts in it set up the watering mechanism and come back to plant in two weeks. Seems simple enough. That's why I'm questioning it so much because it seems logical yet to good to be true hahaha. Also on the topic of cold frames. I love them. I kinda want to make one this year. I think my plan for it will work but I haven't been able to test it out. I might be getting some seeds from a friend but I'm not going to count on that and I feel like I can make these 3fem and 3 regular seeds go a long ways if I play my cards correctly. I'll definitely keep track of my misadventures in the name of guerilla science and to share with everyone here. I've learned so much here it'd be disrespectful to not at least try to contribute in some way.

I'll be experimenting with flats and pulling the whole thing out of the flat to transport (so I don't have anything I have to carry back), and just pulling plants apart to stick in their holes. Works for peppers, and they're really delicate, so it might work with weed. I should be able to put a dozen in a flat. That'll make it pretty easy to carry to the grow.

I've been dying to pop some seeds and start growing, but I'm a month early. So I just planted some lettuce to give me a quick fix.

Just went to my organic supplier and they told me there's a moratorium on Nodosum Kelp harvesting. It's all gone!! You can't get it anymore (at least I can't get it from my organic supplier).

I got a 50lbs bag of another type of dried kelp. It's normally used for animal feed.

Anyone know if using a lot will burn plants? Or should I only use trace amounts?

Is there something special about this kelp? I use a maxicrop foliar for a k boost and add some to drenches in early flower.

SkunkFunk49 will become famous soon enough
Here goes the start of the 2018 outdoor grow. Just rooted clones put in 1gal pots. Just one of these will be put out last week of May in an 18gal tote half promix half Happy Frog. These are Cali Connection 818 Headband regular seeds. My keeper I got from a pack of 10. I had good luck with this indoors so I'm hoping for the same outdoors. This one leans more towards the SourD side with a nice up high like a shot of coffee and tastes like lemons.
