    Soil growers question - can I add soil and bury more of the stem @ 4 weeks?

    Hi folks,

    I am four weeks in and have built the based for the manifold over this pas weekend. There is room for a lot more soil in the pots.

    My question is can I add soil and bury a fair amount of the exposed stem at this point? Will they take advantage and root into the new soil? Am I risking rot in the stem that I am burying?

    In the pic there is actually another inch of the pot folded over, so I can add 3-4 in of soil and would be covering 2/3 of that visible stem, but only if they can use it and it is worth it?

    I have done it without issue of stem rot. Billy you can do this cause you water correctly. Also it's so new to that soil pot it's still safe to lift it out replant deeper. I just don't like seeing it all mounded up wet around the stalk.

      Agree with the gal. There is always a risk but good watering practices and a clean environment is key

        Smear it with aloe juice and cover it, cover no leaves. It may grow roots all along that stalk.

          I do not have any. What do you think about using rooting gel?

          Same difference, rooting gel is rooting gel, I grow my own.

        why cover it? if nothing is wrong with the plant just let it do it's thing.
        I hope there is an afterlife...there are a lot of friends and family I'd like to see again, one day.

          I want more soil for more roots, a bigger plant and better yield.

        Were it mine, I'd top it off with a 50/50 perlite/soil mix.
