    They need to be in smaller pots. Seedlings going into dirt spend most of their energy developing a rootball that is able to support the plant. By starting your gals in solo cups, for instance, roots will reach the inside of the pot much quicker. Not until the roots hit the container side will they start to develop greenery aboveground. By going with a first small pot you are cutting weeks off the time you have to wait before seeing much growth. I start them in 8 oz. solo cups until the larger leaves have passed the cup rim. Then I transplant into 7-inch square berry pots that are about 3/4 gallon. A couple weeks later I TP again into the 3-gallon pots they will finish in. By transplanting early and often I figure I save about 7-10 days of veg time.

    Good luck, BigSteve.

    Rather get some small smart bags, party cups are the devil's spawn.
    Personally, I use ordinary plastic plant bags that I perforate all over with a paper punch, it air prunes like a mofo and it is easy to see when your roots arrive at the side and it is time to size up.

    There is risk involved any time you transplant. If you feel comfortable moving them go ahead. With the tall toothpick plant be sure you support the stem while you move her. One method I've heard of but not tried for moving seedling like yours is to get a tall upside down clear water glass and push it over the seedling until you run out of room. Gently remove glass and dig out the plant w/roots. Don't try to pull up on stem as they don't appear to have a thick enough stem to handle that stress. Again, with the toothpick, grab her so that you line up the palm of your hand with the direction she is leaning. Provides support for skinny stem.

    Good luck, BigSteve.

    Each plant should be in it's own pot.
