    How long would you wait to flip after a transplant?
    Not sure how I've never been in this position. But I need to transplant a lady that needs flipping... She just outgrew her current pot very fast once I lowered the LED strips.

    I normally would wait a week after any trimming to flip, but what about after transplanting?

    these girls are chest high already. Don't want to wait much longer.

    minimum one week, typically 2-3 to give them some room to stretch out

    I was afraid of that.... Guess I'll wait to see some new growth after the repot.

    Conditions are pretty tropical at the moment so growth is strong and steady.
    I just can't believe how much these plants have improved after adding the vermicompost to the coco. (I'm running $10 a year nutrients)

    I wait about a week after transplant from a 1 gallon to 3. 2 weeks if going to a 5.

    I meant to add that pretty much if I go to 12/12 right away the plant stalls and roots anyway for a week or so.

    All the old grow books say to give em 2 weeks after stress to recover .

    Id say whatch the plant

    In my experience if i wait two weeks after i trim up a plant. Then its just as bushey as when i trimmed it lmao

    I wait about a week as well

    But as long as the plants actively growing
    And not stressed looking your probably good.

    But more root always eqaul more fruit so waiting longer doesnt hurt too bad :)

    I feed Hortimix dry nutrients. Extras include amino acid, silica, vermicompost. Always on the lightish side. I also use trichs and mykos as well as a fungal pesticide.
    I know my strain by now and as long as the leaves are between 19 and 20cm with 7 fingers, they are quite happy.
    I have also switched some of my plants over to organic feed in soil and coco mix.

    Fungal pesticide = southern ag ?

    my best plants are ones i allow roots to twirl in the bottom/dangle out the drains of their final container before I flower them.

    Mabey its because they feel threatened by not having enough room so they try hard to further the species?

    Many species do this, mushrooms won't fruit until they think almost all the food is done for instance.
    Fish also, they breed when it either goes very well or very bad.

    I have transplanted and flipped on the same day many times.
    It works really well because the flip/transition period initiates more roots.

    I go straight away as in most cases I'm potting up

    to Anticpate that stretch

    I've yet to encounter any 'side effects'

    good luck

    maybe. But every plant I ever grew in my rooms had twirling roots in the bottom before they really took off.
    Even my 55 gallon drum grows twirled roots at the bottom. In my dwc explosive growth is notable as soon as the roots hit the bottom of the bucket. Maybe its a restrictive growth thing, cant go down must go up maybe. I wouldnt do it any other way.

    When I transplant from a one gal to a 5 gallon and flower immediately in 70 days the roots ball is still centralized and new vertical growth is limited. The plants next to those allowed to root fully are always twice as large in the end.

    I agree

    Definitely bigger root =bigger fruits

    I transplant just before flip .
    Usually they have a couple hours to chill
    This time they where going under the light as they where placed in their new pots

    I don’t have the room to let the plants sit in up sized pots.
