    I would personally just go with the 5er. That way the roots can grow to wherever they want with no impeding. You will get faster growth that way and growin a bush you will have to do a lot of training and topping/fimming. Better to not have any transplanting, any time you are able to use the bigger pots than go with it unless you are going to sex it first then you wont have to waste any good soil. Thats what I would do. Hope it helps. K.I.M.

    Plants benefit from potting up one step at a time, otherwise they would simply send roots to the bottom and then sides whereas by potting up you can form a solid mass of roots and a much larger plant than would have grown had you simply germinated a seed in a large pot.

    8 weeks in the 5 gallon?

    you can start from a five,but I like to transplant at least twice,it gives you the chance to check out the roots,root prune if necessary,you decide,peace

    Yes transplant twice, the middle pot helps build a big solid root ball. Think of it like a pyramid, you need a solid base . That root ball is the base, transplant that into the 5 gal after about a week or so when there is a good amounts of roots around that middle pot.

    Every experienced gardener will strongly agree here.

    When I see all those pictures of little seedlings buried and drowning in 5 gallon cans I am not sure should I cry or laugh .....
