    hi there this is my very first plant I started in a very small pot and than transplanted it at about 2weeks old to this pot which seemed like a pretty big pot i think its about a 2liter or 3 liter pot.... but the plant seems pretty big now at 5 weeks old... what do you guyz think? is it safe to transplant twice when ? especially when it this size?

    A lot of people transplant 3 or more times, finishing in 3-5gal pots. I'd say go ahead and do at least one more transplant, they are pretty resilient as long as you don't tear the roots when you're pulling it out.

    put your lights closer to the plant. your plant is becoming stretched out

    yeah, dude, you don't want to cramp the roots. I'd suggest transplanting it into a 2 or 3 gallon pot. Make sure the drainage is good on the new pot. That pot looks pretty small and your plant wants to get bigger! :jointsmile:

    The generally rule of thumb is 1 gallon of pot size for every foot of plant growth. Your pot is less than a gallon so I would repot after a week or 2 depending on how big you want it to get.
