Hey there, hope the harvests are going well in the northern hemi!
I've been starting seeds and I'm venturing into familiar territory... limited space indoors. I was wondering whether placing a cardboard separator to divide a cup into two is worth doing. I've done a few plants per cup in the past, but when it got to transplanting the roots had become intertwined and it was a bit of work to get them untangled. Of course, there was some inevitable root damage in the process.
Is it worth placing a separator in to prevent root systems becoming entangled, or are peppers robust enough to sustain a bit of root damage on transplanting?
I aim to transplant out in 6 weeks, or even longer, so the root system could still be fairly nascent.
Sure, planting less is an option, but the likelihood of that is ... very low.
