    Hi! im having a little bit of trouble, some of my plants are having 1 or 2 roots poping out of the pot (the roots that are getting out are like 3 to 4 inches)

    i know i should transfer them to another larger pot but i cant afford to get new ones, and they are going to bud in like 3 weeks.

    They are healthy and they have no problems till now, but im getting worried because of the roots that are poping out.

    So, should i cut the roots that are poping out of the holes that are under the pot?

    (indoor growing by the way :p )

    You could always use a bucket or any other suitable container, just make sure that you put plenty holes in it for good drianage.

    No cuttem root please.

    You don't have to buy anything, but you do need to transplant to a bigger pot right away, before they bud.

    When they go into flower they may double in size.
    They will need the room and you will be happier with the results of your grow.

    In a pinch, I suppose you could BOG them.
    Just put some dirt in a large food container and punch drainage holes in it, (Ice cream tubs are good).
    Then cut the bottom off your existing pot and plop it in.
    Of course, if you're going to go to that much trouble anyway, it's best to transplant.
    You can use just about any container.
    Heck, you can grow pot in plastic trash bags.:cool:

    They don't need expensive designer shoes, but they do need lots of toe room.:D

    Well, you asked.

    Ok thanks for the advice, im getting a friend of mine to get bigger pots for me, and, another quick question, for flowering they need 12 hours of total uninterrupted darkness? because all my plants are in the laundry room and sometimes my dad wants to enter there and piss...

    yeah definately transplant... I went and got some big storage containers from walmart like 72 liters for 4$ threw 2-3 plants per container LOTS of room for them.. but youre probably more concerned about cost of soil or is it container cost? Or if you have big dollar store (we have a place called dollarama has large pots for $1)

    and maybe tell your dad to piss in the bathroom like a normal person :p
