    Hey guys,

    Was trying to find this answer but really did not find anything that looked like it would be of help.

    I just checked mine today and 2 of them have roots grown out of them. 1 of which has about 5 obvious healthy looking 1" roots and another that has about 2 of the same size and health look. Some of these are only a few days old and some are about 2 weeks or more. I'm not sure which are which, though.

    My question is when are they stable enough to transplant to pots? What do I look for?

    they should have a mass of roots coming out the bottom of the grow cubes/start pellets, not just a few.

    Alright, thank you! I'll give it another 5 - 7 days and check again. Surprised any of them even rooted. Small cuttings taken from flowering. First ever attempt at growing let alone cloning. Simple enough.

    I have these 2 clear plastic containers from pre-made salad mix. 12" x 6" x 3" deep. Approx.

    One filled with soil and the other covering it.

    gotcha. yeah at 3" you should wait for a bunch of roots.

    you might try either jiffy pellets or rockwool plugs and a plastic tray designed to hold them. it makes transplanting them separately really easy, and they're really cheap. this is especially applicable if you're transplanting to soil, less so for hydro ...
