Grow Q&A: Can I Grow Multiple Pot Plants in One Container?

Dear Dan, I have four seedlings that are into their first week of growth. They’re bunched together. Are they okay like that? This is my first grow and I’d like to know when I should transplant them. They are in one avocado pot growing together. – Willie

Dear Willie,
Growing marijuana plants close together in one container isn’t ideal for several reasons. As the plants get bigger, the roots will compete for nutrients, with the larger plants taking advantage of their growth to shade out their smaller competitors. Also, the roots from different plants will quickly start to tangle together, making future transplantations difficult and stressful on the plants.

My recommendation is to gently remove the plants from the avocado pot and transplant them into their own individual containers for the remainder of their growth cycle. This way, each plant will have its own space for roots to spread out and won’t have to fight for light or nutrients.
