Can I flower in solo cups?

Hey, I have a tiny 2 X 2 X 2 area and 16 extra clones I can't use. As soon as roots show, I'm going to put them in solo cups of soil/perlite in trays and into 12/12 light. Is it actually possible to get to end of flower without killing them? I want them to stay short, and I'm wondering what the smallest possible pot I can use is. Not worried about yield, just want some fun bonsai nugs.

They will probably need to be watered much more frequently at the end of flower when they are rootbound but you should be able to do it if you throw them in flower as soon as they root. Check out Major Pothead's grows, he flowers in 2 liters with great results. Have fun.

Peace

hey nicol,

i had the same problem and flowered mine in 2 liter soda bottles. if your tight on space look for the 1L or the .5L water bottles, they'll probably work better than cups.
these are about 5 weeks in when the pic was taken.

A different and somewhat interesting option would be to take, say, four larger pots. Plant four clones in each. Since all the clones have identical care requirements they can all easily live together in the same pot. Also, there will be more space for your roots. Height can be restricted by training, although I'm also assuming you are not running an HID light in that space either. Whatever you choose, I wish you luck. You might just pull and ounce or two.

Peace,

i think a solo cup would be too small, but a few users are doing 1/2 gallon containers packed in.

as soon as you get roots, transplant into solo and flower. but i would imagine you would get rootbound, should still be a fun time espcially since you got all the gear.

take pics =)

Do it. You'll just have to water more often.

DrBud over at Micro grows in 20oz soda bottles, about 16oz of soil and actually sometimes reveg's and flowers them 3 times in the same soda bottle!
