    Planter pot question

    When starting out seedlings should I use smaller planter pot's to start with and then transplant into bigger pot's as they progress? Or start out with big ones and not have to transplant at all?

    Welcome Matty! If you haven't yet read the GWE tutorial, I highly recommend it: https://www.growweedeasy.com/how-to-...abis-seedlings

    FWIW, I drop a seed in water for up to 24 hours, put in a paper towel to germinate and then into a solo cup. Then, when they're ready, I transplant into a bigger container (1, 3 or 5 gallon). I'm a newbie too, learning as I go. Good luck!

      Hey Matty101 Either will work but the gradual upping of small to large pots is supposed to be better. A search on the GWE website will give you better information.

            You would benefit to go shot glass to 4" to 6" to the final container if you are comfortable transplanting, it's not that hard but there is a art to it and it can happens fast.

            Autoflowers plants should go from shot glass to final container for best results.

          I started out planting germinated seeds in a 1 gallon, to a 2 gallon, to the final 5 or 7 gallon fabric pot. Now I skip the middle and only transplant once from a 1 gallon to the final. Works really well for me and they only have to recover from one transplant that way. Everyone does it a little bit different, I hope you find what works for you. Happy growing!
