      So i just noticed on my babies well young adults,  that their roots came up a lil bit then curve back into the soil. Is it ok to have some parts of root showing above soil by their trunks? Or should i cover them?

      That’s normal just leave em be. Not exactly sure why it does it but it happens to mine alot, mostly outside. I think it’s just sorta an anchor.

        Soil compression and being washed away from the roots are usually why the emerge the longer you grow in a pot.  I plant a bit deeper, burying a bit of the trunk each time to minimise it from happening but it’s really not a big deal like you said.

        My gals done that on the last run, I did plant the new gals a bit deeper and maybe they will not show so bad you know, but it definitely doesn’t hurt them to show you a bit under there skirt you know

        It’s not a big deal but ideally the roots are covered and not exposed, just like a tree in your yard.

      I love it just like the trees in your yard,it doesn’t get any plainer then that.

      It happened on my first grow.  I don’t believe it effected it at all.  But after a while I just took more dirt and covered it up.  The soil in the pot always goes down as you water more and more so there was room.

        That’s the most logical thing to do, there’s no reason to leave roots exposed as over time more will as the soil compresses/washes out and roots are meant to be buried, not growing above the soil.
