I wouldn’t because it can cause uneven soil moisture. Personally i wait until next grow to change media
Id give another week depending on growth. In soil id shoot to up pot once you need to water daily.Hello everyone!
I was curious on when a good time to transplant would be?
Also curious about the power of my light and if there is a time when I should raise the brightness? (I have it ~24 inches above the tops of the plants and at 40% brightness, haven't changed)
I've heard of waiting till the first set of leaves hit or pass the sides of the cups but I wanted to ask on here.
I'm on day 16 after planting within soil. I've been keeping them with the 18/6 light cycle. I'm going to be moving 2/4 of them into 3 gallon fabric containers and then the other 2 I may try to just start putting outside due to lack of space. The outside ones will be put into 5 gallon containers that I have.

Thank you all in advance!
|Growth Phase||PAR Level (PPFD)|
|Seedling / Clone||100 – 300|
|Vegetative||250 – 600|
|Bloom / Flowering||500 – 1050|
Ahhh I can see I will need a better light once they are older. It seems to be alright for this stage (Right around 140-160) at 60% power but will definitely need a more powerful light.As for the light levels, I downloaded an app on my phone (Photone) that appears to do an adequate job of measuring the light intensity if I follow the directions and wrap a 1 " strip around the phone light sensor. Below are some general recommendations I found on the web.
Mind that PAR levels are measured as photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) generally in the unit of µmol/m²/s.
