To encourage increased participation in upcoming and all future challenges and contests of this nature I have started this thread to share our knowledge and experience of growing under these certain circumstances imposed by the rules of these contests. We choose to grow plants in tiny containers as part of these competitions and challenges; however, many people are forced by circumstance to grow in small clandestine spaces.


^^ Pic by WeedCurious from Round 3

When growing in a medium in small containers it seems to me the biggest problems are obviously root related, weather it be too much water saturation causing root rot or suffocation (lack of O2 to rootw) or being rapidly drying media and roots dying as result of dehydration, the medium reaching hydrophobic point and repelling water.


^^ Pic by DansBuds Round 1

Obviously a method of automated watering is optimal for these applications, either driplines, ebb & flow, passive hydro like a PPK or hempy bucket style. In the yogurt cup challenge ALL types of grow are allowed, there are NO restrictions on environment, media, lights, or nutrients. The main concern is that roots are contianed within the (very small) container at all times. It should be noted that pure "hydro" setups like deep water culture and aeroponic methods are allowed as well, altho rarely attemted. ( I would love to see an attempt!)


^^Pic by Avinash.Miles round 4 (i think)

Also at this point it begs to be pointed out that the winner of the yogurt cup challenges are and always have been community chosen based on a various qualities of the grow and it's documentation. All a contestant must do in order to be win is complete a grow following all rules. The quantity and quality of the finished product is less important than the adventurous spirit and learning experience involved in taking part. Finished yogurt cup grows are judged on ingenuity and creativity in addition to documentation and explanation.

Hypothetically a grower who uses a creative thoughtful and unusual method to grow less finished product could win over a grower using conventional methods and producing MORE (or higher quality, or both) finished buds. It's not all about WHAT you grow, but instead about HOW you did.

if you want to grow big plants in small pots this thread is well worth reading https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=55683 it is a long one but what h3ad has to say works really well

95% of what i do with the yogurt cups comes from that thread. the rest is just miniaturization and automation

So, where are the rest of the guys that managed to finish plants during past yogurt cup contests?
Please share your tecnique! Let's get more people involved.
