Bluntsallday started grow question 4 years ago
Am I right in thinking I will transplant and after a week if the plans are doing well, I will FIM the plants tips. Then start tieing down taller colas. Or should I FIM then transplant?
Week 3
Leaves. Tips - Thick

Hello ! Transplant could cause a stress and FIM as well ( possible but not necessary) so I would first transplant then after few days ( even a week ) then FIM. But your plant could handle both at the same time too. Hope it will help you :grin::+1:

Hi @Bluntsallday! I would do it the same day, if you're confident about the rempotting. Indeed, a properly done transplantation has no impact at all on the growth, if you do it correctly your plant won't even notice. FIMing however is a serious surgery operation and will necessarily generate stress, plant will need a few days to understand what's happening, re-drive its apical dominance, and recover / create new growth. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

There's no reason for not doing it the same day, as long as the transplant is straight forward and the roots are not disturbed. In my third diary I trasnsplanted 2 plants during their 2nd week and FIMed right away.
