    I have decided to repot into bigger containers after finding high numbers of males 10 days of 12/12 upon transplant i broke off like a chunk of roots, im paraniod as hell so i turned lights back on to 24/7 and added 2 more clones vegged for 3 weeks. I know revegging takes months but my goal really is to havee the clones catching up to the to the reveging plants and when they do ill 12/12 besides the possibility of hermies will my root build back?

    Yes they should build back up if the rot ball wasnt damaged..Just think of it like root pruning..

    Alot if people shave the root ball or cu off all the root locked zone at transplant. Never transplant while flowering tho, and I would have stayed in flower, why didn't you sex them before 12/12

    i assume i had feminized seeds since daddy was a hermie, guess i killed that myth, also I had soo much soil, i wanted to give the plant as much as possible, sucks trashing exspensive fox farm. repotted from 5 gal to a 10 gallon.

    will the re vegg slow down rootbuilding? I have soo much soil for it to take up that leaving it in 12/12 after transplant will be useless because i noticed roots stop growing after some point during 12/12.

    Yes you roots will grow back, but the question is how much of the roots you broke off? Depending on the amount of roots broken off depends on the amount of shock you plant will suffer and if you have sufficient roots to maintain the present size plant you have. Switching you lights back to 24/7 for one plant doesn't sound light the correct way to proceed. I would suggest you watch the one you damaged, if after a couple of days it looks wilted over still I would suggest to give it a good topping to allow the roots to grow.
    Put this back in the veg room and resume your flower schedule.
    Good Luck
