What's the point of transplanting into a larger pot?

Why not just put seedlings / clones into large pots straight away??

you can do that, if you know what your doing
watering wise,
is much easier to go up in pots,
that way the wet/dry cycle will grow plants much faster
than putting a seedling in a 30l pot,
has and is being done
horses for courses

the root network gets better and stronger if you start with a small pot and gradually increase size as the roots fill out the available space, about 1 week before 12/12 you give the final size pot. if you start out in that one the roots will grow to the edge and start filling up from the outside inwards, they can also drown in too big pots. the exception to this are the auto strains, you want to start them out in their final pot. they hate being repotted once they are growing.

Does every seedling / clone you start end up in the flower room? Not me. I use coir in #1 nursery pots in veg and 2.5 gallon buckets in flower. No point in using more medium than the plant needs.

Excellent point, nothing gets past a six inch pot the hasn’t shown itself worthy. By worthy I mean female or good male traits.

The best method for transplanting in my experience is getting the seedling nice and situated within a one gal pot

Whether you use coco or soil is irrelevant. From the one gal you can literally go into whatever pot you desire

But they need that 2-4 weeks in the one gal to build a nice root ball. I personally go from one gal to a Lowe’s bucket, but for a few of my last plants I’ve gone to 20 gal tote,straight from one gal

How to transplant a small pot into big one? A special technic ??

Can I hold the small pot upside down and simply pull the wee plant out and stick into a big pot?

I transplant based off roots, not really the size. I pick the pot up and look through the bottom holes and if I see white root then I know it’s time

Once its time you simply allow the plant to dry a little, which shouldn’t take long since the roots have filled the pot. Once you think it’s dry, just tilt plant sideways, or upside down if you must, the whole root soil combo should come out easily, in the shape of the pot. Then bury that.

If your plant is root bound you may have to tap the pot or squeeze the sides or squeeze the bottom. Try not to damage to roots, if you do it’s okay, just bury what you can instead

If the plant is stretched and long then this is the chance where you can bury the stem as much as possible, another reason why I like going from one gallon to Lowe’s bucket

Just don’t overwater your first time watering, a solo cup filled with water (maybe 2) should be enough at first. Gradually increase the water
