Moving seedlings in soil into hydro setup (pics inside)
    #638048 - 09/23/12 11:29 AM (4 years, 2 months ago)

OK, I have 20ish seedlings (OG Kush) in soil that I need to put into my hydro tent. This is something I have no experience with, as grow shops here normally sell clones, not seedlings. The clones are normally ready to go straight into 12/12, but these ladies are a little younger.

Are they ready to go in? ANY tips at all on how to make it an easier transition would be appreciated, what EC/PH for the 1st few weeks etc?

At the moment I'm just keeping them humid, spraying a lot (not really watering the soil) and they are under 3X5W flourescent tubes in a 50L rubbermaid.

Sure you can transfer them! :thumbup:

I have done this before.  Just get the dirt clump out of the pot and slowly and carefully break apart the dirt and seperate it away from the roots.  Once you got most of it off the roots you can spray it with a bottle to clean it a bit more or dunk the roots in some room temp water and swish it around a little.  There usually will be a little bit of soil still on the roots and that ok.  It will come off later.  then just plant it into a net pot with some hydroton.  Just take care when putting it into the hydroton as the rocks can damage the roots.  WHen I did it I just made a small layer on the bottom of the net pot then slowly filled it i3n.

@phrostbyte Thanks a lot! Great help. How about the feeding for the first week or so? Plain water or with food?

let those girls recover from that shock before you try and feed em. I've done this with a clone in a peat pot. The resulting plant was somewhat stunted and grew quite strangely the entire time I had it. But it survived just fine...

My best run so far
