When Can I Transplant Baby Plants in Jiffy Pots?

awestruckMarch 22, 2014

I know that when a plant has roots then it is time to transplant the plant, but I am wondering, if I have plants in Jiffy pots, do I have to wait for them to be a certain size before I plant them in the Smart Pots or can I plant baby plants that are growing in the Jiffy pots? Do I just basically stick the Jiffy pot in the growing medium? Thanks.

The Jiffy Pots are designed to be planted in the growing medium. This way there is no damage to the roots when you transplant your plants.
I do not think that there are any advantages to transplanting early. If the weather is good enough to keep your plants outside you can transplant your plants, Jiffy Pot and all.

Yes, it is plenty warm where I am at (Zone 9B). I have some tomato plants that are doing well, and want to plant them in the container soon. I should have just planted them in the container to begin with!
