Transplanting Hydro to Soil – Questions to Jorge Cervantes

 
 
I recently purchased a clone machine, fully equipped including net baskets. After the clone has rooted, how do you remove the clone and roots from the net basket without damaging the roots?

Removing roots, especially if they are more than a 2 cm long, without damaging them a little is virtually impossible, without cutting the net pot. You can minimize the damage and young roots will grow anew, but there will be scrapes, and open wounds in the delicate little roots, an open door to pests and diseases. You can submerge the root ball in cold water to slow biological activity. llet pots are inexpensive and can be easily replaced. Use a pair of pointed scissors or pruners to cut away the net pot so that the roots suffer a minimum of damage. If you are growing in expanded clay pellets, the roots will be jostled around and suffer more damage. If the net pots are filled with rockwool roots will suffer less damage. Ifyou are transplanting into soil or soilless mix, you can plant the entire net pot. If you plan to harvest the plant in a less than three months this could be the best option. If the plant grows much longer roots will gain girth and the plastic netting could impair growth.
