    Simple answer: you can transplant during bloom. If its close to the end of bloom you might be wasting the soil though. If your only 2 weeks in and you think they need it do it. Expect them to stop doing anything for up to 3 days. They need time to recover from the transplant shock.

    You should not feed them until the transplant shock is over. Once they start growing again resume nutes.

    edit: for nute info

    yes you can, make sure to poke holes in your soil to help them air out faster and get some air. try to use rainwater or about 6.5-6.7 pH water

    I would consider it a waste of time. Is there much root growth during this time? I thought all the energy went to plant growth and blooms.

    I got 5 plants a one is doing something pretty strange the leaves are curling sideways figured root bound. The plant itself kinda grew a little funny its more to the side of the pot, like it fell over and grew up from there sol thinging the one side is all pressed against pot!

    first of all if you transplant it right there is no such thing as "transplant shock" if it it becoming rootbound as long as you let the soil dry out pretty decent you can pick it right up out of the pot dirt and all, make sure you water it in good when your done. no need to do anything special it will be fine, if it is root bound its probally a good idea to get it into a bigger pot now so that growth is not stunted 6 weeks into flower.

    if its root bound your plant will be much happier in a bigger pot. as far as nutes, give it a week or so before you give it anything because FFoF soil has enough nutrition to keep the plant happy for a week or so.

    You can transplant a potplant at anytime. Soil should be fairly dry and gently rinsed off the roots then placed into your new sterilized balanced soil and then watered etc. In lava rock/hydroton flood the rocks to transplant.
     
  11. I have the same problem but I'm about 4 to 5 weeks in flowering. Is it too late for me to transplant?

    I had to with my current grow... the one that got transplanted is actually heavier and healthier than the other one. However, I transplanted into a hempy, and was EXTRA careful. Do not damage ANYTHING. In flower, those weeks it could take to rebound will cost you some serious weight if you hurt that plant. If it aint broke, dont fix it. If it needs to be done, it needs to be done.

    I've heard you can risk hermies if you transplant much past 2 weeks or something into bloom

    I just transplanted mine into a 5 gal SP, it's two months old, how long after transplanting it should I wait to start flowering?

    I believe they do go into a shock when you translate them too

    Great thread. Need more input from growers that have done the same thing. Seems as everyone has mixed emotions. Let's get busy and keep growing!!!

    I had to upgrade one in my last run, 5gal to 20, ~5 weeks in. No issue. It quickly went from requiring 2L to 2gal a day.

    Good to know. I need to do the same thing. How did you transplant it? Did you add anything like mykos?

    I transplanted my two plants from 2gal pots to 10Gal pots three days ago. I have continued feeding them their normal feed and everything looks good......

    Nah guys. If done right they won't miss a beat. Break roots and they will go into shock.

    Its simple. Make sure there is a solid root ball. Let the medium dry and squeeze the sides of the pot. Lift the plant out and transplant.

    Its easy.
