Unfazed started grow question 4 years ago
Note that I have two plants in one hydro farm.

The small plant is 5 days younger, as many parents experience it was an accident, but I love her nonetheless.

I hate to toss one, but have nowhere else to grow it. Can I grow both in the same pot ?

You can grow multiple plants in one hydro system, just remember to check on the water level in the tank more often since they will eat faster, the bad thing about 1 tank with multiple plants is in my experience- when something fucks up then everything fucks up- for example rot root (happened to me, air pump broke down in a tank with 6 plants...3 week flower...worse day in my career as grower). If the older plant is bigger, then i would HST or TOP it to stun it a little, so the other one can catch up :) just control it and it will be fine

You can grow both. Watch one of the don't outgrow the other and your available space watch the root ball for sings of rot and you'll be fine bro

Hey there 1st. If this is your first grow congratulations, you've certainly got an exciting setup going on. Accidents do happen, and it is just crazy to think of throwing one out! However from what I understand 1 plant will dominate the other...as twins often do, 1 strong and 1 weakens. If you can move her possibly to a space bucket styled grow, that may be best.
I sure hope it works out for you. But hey what's life without a few learning lessons and curve balls thrown at us. I'm sure you'll make the best of it 1 way or another.

At the end of the day, its all just advice. You can do whatever you wish to do, although I wouldn't advise it. You're better off growing one bigger plant to one light ratio than two runt like plants under one light. Hope you sort out your crisis!

Well, if it was soil I would tell you not to, but since it's hydro you can if you want, just be careful with how long you veg them, since they will need a lot less time to fill the canopy.
Alternatively, you can give them a bit more time and cull the weaker one..

if you want you can try a solo cup grow :D and just leave it right beside the actual plant since she probably wont take up much space

Not recommended as they tend to cannibalize themselves. In this scenario I think I would repot her into soil then go for guerrilla-grow in a discreet spot and see what happens! Good luck!

Growing 2 plants in the same pot is typically not recommended. The plants can start fighting for nutrients and/or become root bound. Do you have a 3rd pot you could use?

If not, I guess you could try growing them together, but I’ve never tried it personally.
