This is my first plant. I started it under regular CFL's until I could get my tent. I transferred it from a solo cup to a 1.75 gallon pot. Here's where I think I screwed up... I have read quite a bit about root lock. I knew it had to be getting close, so I was transferring from the 1.75 to a 3 gallon. I made sure all the sides and bottom were loose before trying to drop out with the plant between my fingers for support. When it came out, Roots were interlaced across the bottom, but were long and thin. In addition, when I put everything in the 3 gallon (fabric), the plant itself felt very loose, almost like it had broken off. I dug down a small way with my finger and didn't see any breakage or damage. It would lean no matter how much I packed on the leaning side, so I put a pipe cleaner around it, and staked it out a way from the root base. Has anyone else had this happen and the plant live? I'm not super worried about losing it, but it's my 1st plant, and I'd like to see it through until the end! I really enjoy all the knowledge everyone here has, and where I've learned a tremendous amount from the mistakes that have been made, or the small things that make you more successful!
