    I just transplanted 2 of my plants into bigger pot and the 1st set of leaves are noticeably droopy (they weren't drooping much at all before transplant). Anyways, I was just wondering if this is common or something I should worry about.Also, if theres any advice or tips to help me it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Im having the same problems I transplanted like 3 days ago and they are still super droopy and haven't grown at all. I uprooted one and the roots havent grown at all but are still white. I'm really confused, I Was gentle and really don't think that it's stress Knowledge says it could be shock or over watering . Do you have pictures

    Its normal after I made my transplant from 1 litter buckets to 5 gal buckets my plants looked sad for about 2 or 3 days.... I misted them 4 times a day with rhizotonic... Its been a week since transplant and my plants growth has totally increased just be patient.

    wow. I watered right when I put the pots back in the room and less than an hour later they are back to normal. I don't know if this would be your problem dankbuddz but it sure worked for me so maybe check it out?

    No Its not an underwatering wilt anymore it looks more like a deficiency...I watered two last night just to test if it was underwatering and they still never perked up.

    I have superthrive but havent used it during the transplant. Should I give them a feeding now?

    Yeah why not can't make it any worse right? I recommend using a lower strength at first try 1/4 strength.

    The biggest mistake made in a xplant is not getting good contact between the rootball and the new medium.

    This usually happens because the fresh medium is too dry. It needs to be moistened well BEFORE the transplant, worked in well with the fingertips (mush it down), and insure good contact with the fresh medium and all areas of the rootball. Bottom, sides, whatnot.

    Then the whole thing needs to be REALLY watered in, sopping wet watered in. If there is any sort of gap/air pocket between the rootball and the fresh medium, the roots will NOT bridge this gap and grow into the fresh medium.

    I do not feed at a xplant. With the new xplant that soggy, it takes 3-5 days at least to dry out. When dry, I water again, to run off and then feed the NEXT day and then on to whatever feed/water cycle you do.

    After many years, I've found that nuting the day after a watering works best for the plant. The roots don't get shocked and the nutes seem to be absorbed better. Just my own observation.

    I am new at cultivation and I am seeking information tips and help from those who are experts at
    growing plants, I have searched the internet and I left with a shrinking list of top botanists. Today I am
    asking you for help in saving my crop. My plant leaves have a white powdery spots on them, and they
    are wilting, I have trimmed the dead and dying leaves and have topped them off, it has been over two
    weeks since then and have not seen any new growth, just the other day I transplanted them into a
    larger container with a mix of Rexius Forest Organic Pot Soil 0782Fra Potting Soil, Perlite by Sunleaves,
    Espoma VM8 Organic Vermiculite, and now grow them under a mix of LED wholesalers 2501QUAD
    Blue/Red/Orange/White 225 LED 13.8 Watt Square Grow Light Panel 110 Volt, 4 clfs 75 w, and 2 small
    grow tubes, if you would like more information I can email you additional info, pictures and or video. If
    you have no information to provide to me, perhaps you know where I will get the help my plants need,
    thank you. [email protected]. Support federal reform to legalize NOW!

    Perfectly normal for plants, give them a bit of time and they should pop back to life!

    It's called transplant shock. It's normal.

    Lmfaoooo! But yeah there are tons of people that don't do research. It's faster to search it on Google than to sign up, log in, ask the question here and wait for a response lol

    the problem is new users, will scour back like 30 pages to read everything they possibly can for the benefit of knowledge, but they forgot they were digging out old ass threads in the process

    daloudpack Well-Known Member
