Too Early to Move Tomato Plants?

Hey guys

I wanna move two of the three seedlings out of the AG3 to their own setup. They are a little over a week old but I kinda wanna do it b4 the roots get really grounded into the current sponge.

Do u think it is too early to move them?

Thank you.

Jessi - I'd say 'go for it'.

Jessi - I'd say 'go for it'. Because 1) what you said - the bigger the roots, the more wedded to the sponge, and 2) it is possible in this operation to damage all the seedlings. If so - no good seedlings left - better to find out how and start 3 more, with only a week lost. Ideally, with the new 3 each in their own sponge from the get-go.

On the other hand, if you have 2 more sponges, it might be safest to seed 2 more tomato plants in your 2 other pod holes.
