I had the same issues with 2 gluberry og.
I may of repotted to early but 1 seedling toppled over now.i had these 2 ladys strenching so repotted from 2 solo cups to 3 gall pots.
I am running 240w led hydromars for now no feeds to early.
When they get bigger swapping led to 2 600w led 1 is dual spectrum and the other is full

Well where the split is. They basically look like Ys. Can I bury The split. Or more so bury past the split
So you topped your plant, and trimmed off everything underneath the topping site? Or you topped it down to the first node? I'm confused. You topped them and want to bury them all the way up to just before where you topped them?

Yeah I topped. Can I bury it so the split is buried too

How old can a plant be and still bury the stem? I got two girls that dont have much going on at the lower stem level and if i could bury another 6 inches during transplant that would be awesome. There about a month old and about 20 inches tall.

This is just to show you how easy it is to bury those long stretchy stems ,

After you replant them make sure you lower your lights so they wont continue to stretch

I do not have a pic of one of those seedlings with the long ass stem reaching for a light that's 2ft high

But i got this one that i internally let slightly stretch a little , you can see the slight stretch at the bottom of the stem

You do not want your soil wet when you do this

its best for the soil to be dry so the extra soil will come off the roots easier

After you take your plant out , GENTLY break lose the soil from around the roots

After you got the excess soil off the roots , put some soil back in the bottom of your cup or pot

you dont want to put your plant right in with the roots hitting the bottom of your cup because you dont want the chance for the roots to grow out the drain holes

so put some soil in the bottom first then put your seedling back in

position your seedling at desired height for your stem to be buried at

i would bury all the way up to the Cotyledon leaves ,

after your have replanted and buried your stem you can then give it just A LITTLE bit of water

the part of the stem that you buried will eventually start to grow roots

your plant will pretty much not go into shock at all from this

just make sure your gentle when your braking the lose soil off the roots

Like i said this is not a bad stretchy plant but the same principle applies with those long ass stretchy stems

hope this helps you all that has the long stretchy seedling stem problem

remember to lower your lights so they wont continue to stretch
Hi!
I’m new here and new to pot in general.
I was in Jamaica a few months ago and bought some pot. I brought some seeds home with me and planted them and they are growing. But I have no clue what to do with them now!!! Any advice?

Yeah dude you can transplant six inches down. Well you can transplant to the baby leaves. Not sure what the consensus is about burying past the baby leaves if the first node is super far past that. Sorry for the slow response.

Age don't matter, every time you replant, sink it as low as you can. Young plants will grow new roots from buried stems. Old ones wont, but can still be buried.

Should not have planted them in the same pot. An experoenced grower I would say might still have time to repot them into seperate pots and to untangle the roots. For you, a beginner, I would suggest transplanting them into a much wider pot and putting outside. If you're growing indoors not using a grow light, not gonna get the best results.
