All of our plants went to their big boy pots today - 15 gal each, except for one 10 gal, just to see if we can do it with just 10 gallons of dirt. Anyway, they are all looking pretty healthy, and the addition of mass to the room will increase humidity dramatically, so maybe I won't have to spray the plants four times a day. Or maybe I just do that because I'm neurotic. They are supposed to be at 50% humidity (and 76 degrees), though, and we have a very hard time reaching that in our basement. In fact, our basement is both too cold and too dry - which is why we created the grow room. Well, that and the fact that when it starts to bloom, NO LIGHT can hit the plant during it's nighttime dark phases, or it will stop the bloom. So by creating a small room, we're able to be pretty sure that we won't accidentally light them up at some point. Cuz.. bummer.

Anyway, the plants are back to looking tiny, even though the largest one is 9 inches tall! But I imagine they will begin to grow like... well.. weed, now that they are in their big pots. They all have healthy roots, so wish us luck!

You know, if you don't get tested for work or insurance, I could bring you some when we visit. Not ours, but our neighbors', which is quite excellent. Barring that, we should have a load of cannabutter at the end of the summer, if everything goes as planned, and I could bring (or send some by Law) in the fall so you can bake your own edibles. It's great for pain and sleep.

Funny I've been trying to do similar with strawberries without much luck. Just started the cloth pot method though.
