    Transplanting from soil into a TG?

    soffintrevor

      I am interested in knowing if anyone has had success transplanting seedlings/young plants into a TG from soil. I recently purchased a young cayenne pepper plant from the Home Depot gardening department that was about 10in tall. It came in a standard biodegradable soil pot ready to be planted outdoors.

       

      As an experiment, I removed the plant and root system from the soil and gently rinsed away all of the soil from the roots. I then placed the plant in a TG net pot and filled it with expanded clay pebbles (as many ebb and flow systems use). The plant is not doing well and I'm sure there are many reasons why.

       

      Is it possible to transplant into a TG from soil?
