RULES
thanks to ElfstoneStrider for original rules
slightly amended from last round:

1) a 6 oz. individual yogurt container of any shape or brand. No substitutions. Keep the original label on there, please.

2) a cutting, rooted clone, seed or seedling of any Cannabis, male or female. Please specify strain/hybrid/breeder lineage in as much detail as possible.

3) each contestant can enter up to 5 yogurt cup plants (one plant per cup), but must choose only one to be judged.

4) There is no call for entries thread this round, so contest will stay open to new entries the entire time.

5) Your entered cuts or seedlings may be rooted or germinated or not at the time of entry. If it is not rooted, then it must either root in the yogurt cup itself OR be transplanted directly into the yogurt cup so the roots fit entirely inside the yogurt cup.

6) All roots must remain inside the yogurt cup for the duration of the challenge and may require trimming. Bottom feeding is allowed, but if roots grow out the bottom of the container they must be trimmed and not be outside the 6oz container.

7) Harvest must be no more than 18 weeks from today, that's January 13th. Plants must be cut and pics posted showing harvest by January 13th.


We will take and post weekly pics of our entries. We will all keep a good, fun spirit of community and sharing of knowledge and experiences. Weekly update pics are pretty key here so let's all try to keep up, although if you miss one week, don't quit, just keep the updates as steady as possible. Try not to miss more than 3 weeks especially in a row, we really want to show the progress of each yogurt cup grow.

Final harvest weights, both wet and dry, would be great, but not mandatory.

This round is longer allowing for people growing from seed to participate, even if they crack seeds today. If you choose to grow from clone you can end early, January 13th is just maximum time allowed.

Showing plants against a ruler for reference, along the way and at harvest, also not mandatory, but would be awesome.


^^^^^ HOPE THAT ALL MAKES SENSE ^^^^^^


There is no call for entries thread this time, this thread will be the place to be untill Jan 13th.

Awesome to see us going!!! Since there's a little time, I'm waiting for my Cindy99 to be cloneable and will run a couple strains. Thanks for setting it up Avi!

Ha... this is AWESOME!

It's like Bonzai hobby growing for the cannabis lover. So cool...

I'm only in my current spot for 2 more months... So I can't setup a grow yet..

But, can you grow a little plant like this with one of those cheapy bulbs from Lowes? If so, I'm going to start this today! In a clear mason jar, for fun. When I get a place and have to time to complete some grows I look foward to joining this fun little competition!

Couple of questions for you Avinash...

1. How long did that take to complete?
2. 12/12 all the way through?


Nice.

Nice.
you could grow under any bulb, i believe the best bulb you could get at lowes would be a 300w cfl, maybe only a 150w depending.... or maybe a 150 or 250w hps, streetlight style....
but you can grow under anylight you want: t5 (any tube blubes) cfl, pll, led, hps, mh, even outdoors, no limits on your environment at all.

screw your clear mason jar, use a yogurt cup, like 60cents at the grocery store. also a mason jar will be tough with no drainage at all....
and it's all for fun, but also to learn! about micro container growing as well as the genetics. also good for testing nutes, you could grow 5 clones of the same plant with 5 different types of nutes. also good for growing males out for pollen chucking small amounts of pollen.

as for your 2 questions:
1) how long did what take?

2) no, not 12/12 all the time, light schedule is entirely up to you, like i said, no environmental restrictions, aside from container size and keeping the roots entirely within the container the entire time, like i said, root pruning MAY very well be necessary.

I took out the height limit last time, and there is none this time either.
We are not trying to grow the tallest plant or even the highest yielding, so go as big or as small as you want, flip and harvest as you want, only rules are container size & roots remaining contained within the small container, and the time limit.
