    Return of the Yogurt Cup Challenge; Winter 2017

    Return of the
    Yogurt Cup Challenge
    Winter 2017

    This contest is open to ALL icmag members; there are NO restrictions at all on environment / equipment / method, only the container size. (The primary rule being that roots must remain entirely inside yogurt cup at all times). The true purpose of the contest in my eyes is to drive participation & cooperation on the site and bring members together in a spirit of sharing knowledge and experiences of growing in tiny containers.


    RULES
    Read Closely

    1) All participants must use an individual serving food container, generally yogurt (labeled as 6 oz serving size here in the states, or 150 to 180 grams for Europe and most everywhere else) of any shape or brand (these will generally have a maximum volume of 250 mL).
    250 milliliters maximum volume is the official size limit. No substitutions/transplants (plants must remain in original container throughout the contest). Keep the original label on there, and show it in a photo if you plan on covering it later.

    2) All participants will use a clone, seed, or seedling of any Cannabis variety, male or female. Please specify strain/hybrid/breeder lineage in as much detail as possible (or even if it's a bag seed; tell what kind of herb was it in the bag the seed came from).

    3) Participants can enter up to 5 "yogurt cup plants" (one plant per cup), and will choose the best one to be judged.

    4) Seedlings may be germinated or not at the time of entry; Clones maybe rooted or not at time of entry as well.

    5) All roots must remain inside the yogurt cup for the duration of the challenge and may require trimming. Any type of feeding is allowed, but if roots grow out the bottom of the container they must be trimmed immediately and not be outside the container (once again, 250 mL maximum capacity).

    6) Harvest must be no more than 20 weeks from today, that's May 24th 2017 . You can enter and finish ANY time between now and and the 24th of May, but MUST be harvested with finished product pictures and smoke report by May 24th 2017.

    7) Keep the photos and updates regular, one per week at least. Showing a ruler or something for scale in pics goes a long way! Missing 3 or more weeks without any update disqualifies a contestant, so keep up steady updates for maximum participation and to be considered in the winners poll.

    8) Winner will be decided by a poll posted after the challenge is completed.

    9) It is expected of all participants to keep a good attitude in the spirit of community and sharing of knowledge and experiences. Let's all have FUN.

    Completed Yogurt Cup Grows will be judged by the ICMAG community in a poll upon completion of the contest. Finished grows will be judged on:
    Quality of the information given
    Frequency and presentation of updates
    Quality of photographs and / or videos
    Explanation & details
    Design of the grow (concept)
    Smoke report
    Answers to questions about the grow
    Quality & Quantity of the harvest

                      Has anyone done this with a Blumat setup? Maybe not the smartest way to go due the limited pot size, but it's how I usually watering my plants. I think I will give it a try.

                              If I germinate regular seed and it is male, can I replace it with another seed?
