« Part 2: 1 Week (More like 3 Weeks) Part 3 of Grow Light Progression series no next part

I’m a day late. I forgot what day it was, and finding out it was Sunday. So forgive the 1-day late post lol

I repotted my Tomato plants into 4” Pots to give the roots more growing room. You can see the photo below of the repotted plants, I was kind of concerned when repotting that I didn’t damage the root system or even breaking the stems, but they appear to be strong enough to handle the transfer from the cells to the pots.

They are doing better it appears, I buried them deeper into the pot so the stem can grow some roots to help support the stem for when it grows taller.

I’ve not repotted my Peppers just yet. Both Tomatoes and Peppers are sitting outside to Harden Off. For anyone that don’ know about Hardening Off your Plants. It’s the process of Taking your Seedlings “After” They receive their second set of leaves (Which are teh Primary Leaves), and after they are around 3 Inches, Taking them outside IN The shade for an hour 1 day and 2 the next and gradually increase outside time to get the plants accustomed to the outside world.

Once Acclimated to the weather, then introduce to the sun a little at a time so they’ll know what it’s like in the sun slowly over a week period of time.

So this is my Blog post for the week. They still remain under the LED Lamp when they are brought in until they can handle the outside elements full time and the coolness of the evening chill.
