Week 3 Day 6: under 6 inch
Other than being autoflower & transplanting couple times, which I won't do next time, are there any other reasons for stunted growth during veg phase? Or are my logs normal & I'm just impatient? I've put every detail I can think of in my diary.

Hey dude, temps good, humidity good, light sched. Good. Your ph is on the high side (not by a ton for soil though). if your nute sched. Is accurate then I’m not sure why you’d be feeding bloom nutes while she’s still in veg??? All said, she looks pretty healthy. Biggest limiting factor with growth I can see is the pot size, my guess is that her roots are already winding around the inside of that pot and I would move to at least a three gallon, preferably 5 gallon while you still have time before flowering starts. Best of luck and feel free to reach out if any of this was helpful. Cheers

When you transplant any plant the tap root has to continue growing downwards this is where the stunted growth is “expressed” by the continuation of downward growth. She looks surprisingly healthy for being handled so much. I wouldn’t advise you transplant anymore. And the pot you are in is not very big or offer much space for the roots. I would take this 1 as a learning experience tbh. I’ve just transplanted my autos they are growing but slowly. It’s a natural response and the more you mess with it the longer you can expect things to get back on track. But I can say for the size of pot and age things look fine. I would expect her to be showing preflowers now?

Ive always heard not to transplant autos. I transplanted one one time and it stunted the growth and it turned out small. You may have stunted them. Now its a waiting game. Theres a product called "Recharge" it should help the plants through stress. I wouldnt plant in transparent pots/cups. The roots dont like light. A 69 degree (f) feed temp is also what I would recommend. Best of luck!
