    wats up dude if your plants are in pots and theres no way for the water to drain it could drown the plant but if ya growing them tough outdoors wit alot of attention they will be fine just let the sun bake them right when it comes out again.........

    Too Late to Transplant?

    ya man there in pots but there just getting too big for the pots and the rain has stopped it didnt do much cuz theres holes in the bottom of the pots but alot of them are leaning now and may need a stake beside them. shud i be transplanting them if there already flowering? they are in 1 1/2 gallon pots and are about 20 inches tall.....any advice would be great pce

    cut out the bottoms of the pots and put them in the ground, if you cant put them directly in the ground then you definately need to transplant...those pots are way too small for a good root system to be able to form...good luck. it might be too late tho because once the plants start to flower the roots don't really grow, the plant is sending all it's energy to the flower.

    Cut the bottom off and set on top of some good soil.

    I'd cut off the bottoms and leave them for the roots to grow in the ground.
    If there bound the plant will die.

    The roots get fat during flowering.
    What soil are you setting them on...
    I guess as long as you cut the bottom off and let the roots stretch it shouldn't matter.
    I cut mine with a razorblade...try not to damage the root ball,the little roots coming out the bottom can be cut.

    You can tell if there bound by the roots coming out of the bottom.
    Also your plant will start to wilt and die.
    Cut the entire bottom off and try not to cut the roots that are allready growing in the grownd...if you have to,it wont hurt them...It might stunt it for a day or two but better then death.Just don't cut the main root ball that is inside the pot.Don't worry about it when you cut the bottom of the pot just be careful...treat it like a newborn baby.
