    Hi. I just got 34 seeds. 17 bc mango and 17 bc god bud and i was wondering how long could the seedling live in a peat puck before need to be transplanted? Would a T5 8 watt support them for a week? from sprout.

    hi i recently had 11 blueberry clones in peat pucks, and they took ages to root in total they were in the peat pucks for close to 3 weeks before i transfered to rockwool, i lost 4 which was my own fault cause i turned my heat pad up and fried them but now 7 are very healthy plants.

    my point is they last ages in the peat pucks and i ive also seen them go from straight from peat pucks to flower n do amazing! type ''small plants, big buds avi'' in youtube to see the guy go straight from peat pucks to flower.

    this is a good question. i am currently using peat pucks as well but i am an outdoor grower. I am under the assumption that they can grow quite well in there for up to a few weeks. I am also very curious as to when i need to transplant. The netting does not need to be removed right? you just place the whole thing into your new pot?

    yea the roots grow through the net. Just like those peat pots. The roots grow through the pot. I figured it would be like a clone 7-14 days before transplanting. Im going to transplant into flowering tho.
    Once you see strong roots you are sappose to transplant. But i was wondering on long that would take?

    I stricktly use jiffy pucks, they are the easiest way i have been able to clone. 100% success with them, in 7 days they root, 7" humidome, 23watt cfl, 22 watt heatmat. the heatmat and the tall dome are what helped me go from about 60% success to 100% success every time .you just plop them right into your medium of choice once they root and your off and running. dont know how long you can leave them in (with no medium) the pucks.

    If your interested I'll spell out my cloning technique in detail, it works out real good, and fast. I also do a "pre-veg" that in my opinion helps out a ton during veg, and that pays off in flower, its all about the roots.

    Good luck

    i started seeds in peat pucks i'd say between week 2 and 3 you'll start seeing roots out the bottom i would transplant them within a few days after that but I've left them longer untill there was a lot of roots and they still looked fine.

    Good answer. Thanks for the info. Im starting to like seeds more. cept the part that they arent all females haha. Can you start pre flowering after you transplant them? The mango is sappose to start 12/12 after proven vigorous. 1-2 weeks after seed sprout. rep +
