GranDaddyPuff Why didn’t you fill the bags ? Now your only growing the equivalent of a 2 G pot. Kind of a real waste. They would have loved the extra soil and would not have needed to be replanted.

Tellsnow I completely agree and, in hindsight, wish I had added more soil. That being said, this is my first grow and size of the plant is a constraint in my living situation. Photos of full 5g pots show some pretty large plants and bigger than my space can accommodate, so I went with a little more than half filled to be extra safe. Next grow I’ll go all in.

Day: 1

Planted! Enjoy the view ladies.
