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

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.

“Twin” Cannabis Seedlings

Twin tap roots can sometimes emerge from one cannabis seed. This is sort of like your seed having twins, because each new root has the potential to form into a separate plant! It’s not incredibly rare to get twins, but it is pretty neat to see it happen in person!

When this seedling sprouted, it had two taproots coming from the same seed

When the leaves appeared, there were two distinct seedlings – you can see another tiny set of leaves behind the main sprout!

In this case, I decided to kill the smaller sprout, but you can also gently and carefully separate the two seedlings and transplant one into a new home.

Examples of “twins” being born

From this grower, “When I got the seed it looked really deformed.”

If you grow two seedlings together in one container, their roots will become entwined and one plant will usually dominate, stunting the other one. But if you give each plant their own home, they can both thrive!

After the seedlings grow out, you have a tough choice: Separate them or pick one to keep!

In this case, the grower decided to save both!

In its new home!

It grew so fast it ended up getting rootbound in just two weeks!

A few days later after being transplanted to a new container, the plant is healthy and growing strong. At this point it’s a little under 3 weeks from separation of its “twin”
