Growing more plants in one pot, even if this is a big pot, will only make your plants compete for nutrients and water. And if you think adding more nutrients and watering more often can help, it may not be as easy as it looks.
If you really want to proceed with growing more seeds in one pot, make sure you get a large pot. This must be made of durable materials like clay to ensure that it can hold the number of plants you want to grow. We also recommend using a fabric bag because it won’t break or give in to the weight of all the plants you want to grow. The roots won’t be drowned in a fabric pot as it will also drain excess water and fertilizer better than other types of pots. Also, fabric bags are available in different sizes to fit the number of plants you want to grow.
Increased growing costs
A one-pot per plant rule is more expensive because you will need more pots and stronger and more efficient lighting to cater to all your plants. You may also end up growing only a small number of plants because you’re conserving space.
With the one-pot per plant rule, your cannabis plants can grow better and healthier root systems. Every grower knows that healthier roots contribute to the overall health and wellness of plants. Roots can move deeper into the soil and take in water and nutrients. The roots will also take in more oxygen as this benefits its overall growth as well.
A general rule for plants suspected of having pests or mold is to isolate the plant to protect other plants in the garden or nursery. But how can you do this if you’re growing in one pot? When you grow your plants in individual pots, you can take a diseased or pest-infested plant and separate it from others for treatment. This makes treatments cost less and is easier to manage rather than treating several plants at the same time.
If the pot is too small, the growth of your roots, and therefore the growth of your entire plant, will be restricted. If the pot is too big, this increases the likelihood of overwatering, fungus, and root rot.
Seedlings are very sensitive and do not take kindly to growing mistakes like improper humidity and moisture levels. Both could spell the premature end for your seedlings.
5. IMPROPER HUMIDITY FOR SEEDLINGS
Using the right containers for your weed might not seem like a big deal, but you’d be surprised just how crucial this variable is. Here are some factors you should consider:

Not using proper soil is another common mistake. So, what is the “proper” soil for growing weed? Well, let’s take a look.
