Transplanting is the process of moving a cannabis plant from one growing medium to another. For example, from a solo cup to a 3-gallon pot. It’s a necessary part of the cannabis growing process, and it has several benefits. Let’s take a look at a few of the reasons you might want to transplant your cannabis plants.
To improve drainage
One of the most common reasons to transplant your cannabis plant is to improve drainage. If you’re growing in a container and notice that water is pooling on the surface or that your plant is sitting in water after you’ve watered it, it’s time to transplant. Poor drainage can lead to root rot, which can kill your plant.
Transplanting into a larger container will give your plant more room for its roots to spread out and will allow excess water to drain away from the roots. You can also improve drainage by adding perlite or vermiculite to your potting mix. If you’re growing in soil, you can mix in some perlite or sand to improve drainage.
To increase airflow
Cannabis plants need a lot of air circulation to grow strong and healthy. If your plants are growing in soil that is too dense, they may need to be transplanted into a new pot with looser soil. This will help them get the airflow they need and prevent mold and mildew from developing.
To increase root space
The most obvious reasons to transplant your cannabis plants is when they have outgrown their current pot and need more room to grow. You may also want to transplant to increase the amount of root space, which can lead to increased growth rates and larger yields. Transplanting can also help your plants if they are root-bound, which means the roots have become tangled and are growing in on themselves. This can happen if a plant is left in a pot for too long, or if the pot is too small.
