Airborn is correct. Not a Good idea. They need to be separated as quickly as possible. I have separated plants before, just not weed. Un-pot the root ball and wash all the dirt away and separate them.

Why wash the dirt away I would have dug each plant out with long bladed planting shovel. keeping as much dirt attached to each plants roots, then transplant into fresh soil.

I guess if they are all (the roots) tangled up with each other the rinsing may be of use, like pute said, as soon as possible. There will be a little root damage no matter which way, just try to minimize. Let recover, dont dump nutes on them maybe adjust lights down a little for a day or so.

I have done this many times. Take your time try an do as little damage to the roots as possible and you will be successful. Do it now.
well they all look good still its been since lastnight when i transplanted would they be looking bad by now if they were not going to make it?

I guess no peee and roundup then. When I sing, I make a mess gargling the cal mag. But my feet are nice and green. No lock out....some stinkout. A bit. Puffin & Passin. Whoops I'm by myself.
