transplant size from 72 cell?

andyinnycMarch 5, 2011

I started my peppers in 72 cell trays this year in order to make my life a little simpler - I have used small cups and then larger cups in the past.

So, at what size do you guys (and gals) transplant the seedlings into larger containers? I have several true leaves on all the plants, but they don't seem to be root bound yet.

I grow them out and plant them out of the 72's. I transplant them into the 72's. I am planing on transplanting some this week with hopes of going out around the first of April.

I prefer to use 50's, but I need to plant around 325 peppers in one of my high tunnels. It would take 4.5 trays and that would save 2 trays for something else under the lights.

I start mine in 6-cell seedling trays.
When the seedlings have between 3 and 5 pairs of true leaves, I bump them up into 4-inch pots.
Then I transplant from the 4-inch to the garden.
