Moving Marijuana Plants

Moving Marijuana PlantsQUESTION: I have a few plants that have been in the ground for about 3 weeks, but I have to move them immediately as my mother-in-law is coming to visit soon. I have a great  spot for them that’s a bit hidden, but i don’t even know if it’s possible to pull them up and move them. Any help would be great.

Dru West: Moving the plants at this point is risky. If they have been in the ground that long, their roots have already spread out quite a bit, which will make it difficult to transplant without damaging them.  If you are going to move them, be very careful. Unfortunately, moving them at this point is probably going to stress them out.

Instead of trying to move them, is there any way you can plant something in front of them or stack up some wood to block the view? Maybe just go buy some Japanese Maples to set in front of them.

You can stake the weed plants down, so the stalk is parallel to the ground. Prune off the branches from the underside, and continue to keep growing them like vines along the ground. This is a good way to conceal them and will actually increase your yield.

Check out my book The Secrets of the West Coast Masters: Uncover the Ultimate Techniques for Growing Medical Marijuana to learn our secrets on how to yield over a pound per plant in as little as a 4’x4’ space.

    Hi. Awhile back you made a comment about staking your weed plant parallel to the ground, and in doing so will yield more weed. Why is that, and do you then recommend doing that to the plant always if you have the room? Thank you.

    Hi. A neighbor of mine has a few marijuana plants that are 3-5ft tall. Someone stole his 6ft plant and now he wants to move the others, is there a safe way to transfer them without shocking or killing them?
