    Sounds like the pots are too small. Be careful feeding as you could easily accumulate to much in the soil if feeding too much. How big are they?

    These were about 3.5 ft 2 weeks ago in cloth shopping bags that hold about 8 gal of soil. I just dropped them in 20 gal smart pots and sunk them in the ground a bit 2 days ago and im hoping that will be enough. I also put 5 gal of soil underneath them. So almost 30 gal to finish. Just started showing pre flower.

    You'll be fine, I use grow bags but slice the bottoms so the roots grow into the mounds from previous years, I feed every other watering and I water slowly in order to soak the soil and not have it run out. Here's a plant in a 7 gallon bag IMG_2774.JPG

    Opps wrong quote but they can and do thrive in smallish bags if that's what their in, on that note bigger is better ;).

    I was assuming he was in 5 gal buckets, a little different!

    Why? I use 5 gallon bags as well and it just means more water, which yes is a pain. But again they will grow. Just saying they won't die lol. I've grown outdoors in all sorts of containers and typically smaller just means more work ;).

    A bucket and a bag are different. No root circling with a bag.
