I would like to know if I can transplant my plants from a Hydroponic system with thick roots into the soil? The roots look sensitive as they are thick and bushy. Any advice?

|Hi Tam 😎😎😎 good Q.... As hot as it is where u at. I wouldn't till it cools off 😕some. Also what kind of plant.and how big. Try one. Call it your sacrificial pepper!!
It sounds big ? Aren't you gonna have a hard time getting the roots out of all thoughs rocks ? And big time damage to root hairs. Gonna be BIG TIME SHOCK 😬
Root exposure to air. Causes shock. So try to keep roots in water while 😕???
Hummm!!! Dee-Rocking them ! After
dee-rock. Have a bucket of water next to you. Lift da dude right into da bucket. Take him to her new pre-dug hole. Fill hole with water. Put er in it. And i think you know da rest. Oh !!! Don't forget da fish emulsion !

|It would be no different than planting a cutting you rooted in water. Make sure the soil you are planting too is thoroughly damp as dry spots will cause burned roots. Hold the plant at soil level in your pot and gently add soil around and through the roots trying not to break them up. After the soil is added, water thoroughly to pack the soil against the roots.
Are you using a non-soil planting medium in the hydroponic system? Clay pellets, rock wool, pebbles...? Or are they just in water?

|Hi Philip and Daisy,
Im not sure if I can post pictures here gona dig around the forum and see if I can. Id love to show you guys what im working with.
As for the transplanting methods, excellent advice thanks a lot will try them on my next batch once they grow. I bought some new seeds today and gona be planting in my shaded area as well as in my hydroponic system. Just waiting for my new stronger lights to be installed today hopefully!
I have another question actually. I cant find hydroponic fertilizer or nutrition for my system .Can I use Liquid Foliage fertilizer instead??
If you have any sort of communication method online I can send you the pics if you cant log into youtube.
