It’s been a full week since I asked and acted on the issues. I got a good start on the mites but my order of mite killer ran late so will start over again on the routine. The hand mixed fertilizers and fish emulsion(forgot we added 🩸 & 🦴 meal before the fish water) helped a good bit but I fertilized with fox farms yesterday and already see a difference! I swear, Even my little grape seedling and squatter 🌲 are taller since yesterday too🤯.

the two clones I took while trimming last week look healthy still! They got essentially dunked in mite spray and then covered.

Would love any opinions on if I should or should not change pots if I’m seeing roots at the bottoms now? (Pic). I added a pic of the plant that was the worst-off, it’s like night/day, the difference! I’m going to take better pics later, just waiting on the sun 🌞.

Are your clones in clear pots? If so get them out into dark ones , Light hurts the roots.
Looking good, My opinion is yes you can move into final pots now

I did not know that! And it seems so obvious now. I’ve started all my clones in clear cups. I can switch them over easily though when I replant plant the few random clones in the flat, open container. :) thanks for that tip!

Soil Roots and Darkness
When roots naturally grow below the soil surface, nearby light signals they are headed the wrong way. Like stems, roots contain growth-directing hormones known as auxins, which tell them which way to grow. In the same way that upper growth on plants bends toward well-lit windows, roots naturally grow away from light. They seek darkness and protective moisture instead. In transparent pots, these roots avoid light-penetrated areas of soil. Forced into high-light areas, light-sensitive roots recoil and slow or stop growth. When light dries soil out, tender root tips can suffer.
