    how do you transfer a jiffy pellet to soil? i have had a skunk strain germinating in a jiffy pellet and it has roots and almost growing out of the pellet so that means it's ready to be in reg. soil well i was going to either put it in a sup or a pot. what do you all think? and also the leafs are growing good i'm growing inside too

    if she has a good root system u can see yes put her in soil. if she dose not have good roots you can see don't plant yet.

    i also heard that you should take the net off the pellets too before you plant it into soil i was going to do that

    leave the net.. The roots will grow right thru it.. And where ever you heard or read to take net off.. You might not want to follow any more of their advice.. lol

    Yeah..no reason to remove the nets...people think the nets will constrict the roots somehow...but really roots crack concrete so they can make it through some nylon netting I am sure.

    Rip the net off the pellet before you transplant so the roots can spread our faster.

    yes tree roots the size of 2-liters can crack concrete. Not baby little tap roots.

    If you can take it off without damaging the roots i say go for it

    the net is not there for the plant it is to keep the peat from crumbling away when wet.

    Yea I say remove it, although not necessary it can only make things easier for those roots. If you do it carefully.

    Exactly, if you don't transplant til you see the roots coming out? Then how do you remove net with out damaging roots.. If those baby root and get thru, they,re only going to get bigger and stronger so they'll have no problems getting thru a flimsy piece of net..
