There are varieties of marijuana that grow more than others, for example the sativas are higher and grow more than the Indicas, that is why, it is more probable that they need bigger pots with time.

Do not transplant your flowers under inclement sun or too intense growing light. To avoid exposing the roots to excessive light, some growers recommend transplanting at the end of the day.
