Transplanting-How Many per pot? Empty Transplanting-How Many per pot?

Post  scmelik 4/10/2011, 10:24 am

Some of my plants have really shot up in the last week and are starting out grow the pellets that they are currently planted in. I am going to try and get my box and MM made today and tomorrow but it still to chilly outside to transplant outside so I was going to take some of my MM put it into some bigger pots and transplant the rapid growing plants that I have. My question is can I put multiple plants into one pot? Will the roots system of the plants intertwine to the point where when its time to put them outside I will have a problem? Should I just leave them where they are? Need some suggestions.

Depends on what you are transplanting as some veggies don't like having their roots disturbed while others don't really care.

Squash, cucumbers, and melons are examples of veggies that don't like having their roots disturbed. If the roots are bothered that plant is shocked and it stops growing for a while. This delay can prevent them from producing veggies/fruit before the end of the season in zones with shorter growing seasons.

Individual peat/jiffy pots work well as you can plant them directly into the ground.

Maybe you don't need to keep them inside for to much longer if you have early / cool season crop plants. Early / cool seson crops are a bit different, they are tough and can often go out well before frosts are over -- strawberries, onions, broccoli, and lettuce are examples. I put mine out 1-2 months before the last frost, they have survived snow, freezing rain, rain followed by deep freezes, and frosts. I cover the broccoli and lettuce for some of the colder events 'cause I am chicken but they have weathered some unexpected nasties really well.

If you feel the seedlings need to be up-potted because they just can't go outside yet, put one seedling in each pot. If you put multiple seedlings into the new pot, the roots will intertwine and then you may damage the roots trying to get the plants apart for final placement in your garden. Many of mine I moved from the peat pellets into 2 inch six packs. Added just a bit of MM, the pellet, and a bit more MM. It fit right in the new cell. This is good for cool weather plants that may just need two weeks or so until they can go outside. (I also used bathroom sized paper cups with lots of holes)

If you are talking warm weather plants like peppers, tomatoes, etc, move them into 3 inch pots, so they can sit inside for the several weeks until time to plant outside.
