Well this morning they look happy and vibrant. Gave them a drink and I’ll see what happens when the direct sun starts hitting them in a couple hours.
There is no pot inside the grow bags. You might be referring to what is called cyclops planting. That is basically making a indentation in the soil and filling it in with seed starter mix and planting a seed or seedling in to that. It is a useful method when planting auto flowers to avoid transplanting when the final soil would otherwise be to hot for a seedling.What is the purpose of the pot inside of the grow bag? I have seen this many times ...just wondering what purpose it serves?
An old trick to fix this: When you transplant, stab the root ball with a sharp pencil a few times to make sure water can penetrate, then replant.My guess is that the root balls are sometimes a little thick in the centers when they get transplanted sometimes, and the soil they get planted into is very loose.. So water tends to go to the loose spots, and it doesn't always penetrate that root ball.
When you transplant, take extra care to ensure your getting good penetration into the root zone with your fluids, so that you don't have any dry spots. At least that's a problem that I come across when upgrading in pots such as these.
Plant's look really good BTW, nice work.
Gives me two watering zones, plus i give a lot away and its easy to transplant with just the plastic lid on the bottom of the can. Keeps my plants small unless they go in the ground, where it works as a weed and snail shield.What is the purpose of the pot inside of the grow bag?

Yup, or simply kinda work the roots apart a bit if there' in a tight ball. I even been known sometimes to separate the roots some. Growing a plant indoors in a smaller sized container is much different than an outside grow, no doubts, and the plant certainly needs a bit of time to adjust and put down some of the looser network of roots typically seen in an outdoor grow.An old trick to fix this: When you transplant, stab the root ball with a sharp pencil a few times to make sure water can penetrate, then replant.
