Solo Cup Challenge!

3 months ago

There are ideas floated around and remain that...an idea. Then there are those ideas that gain legs and take off on their own. The Solo Cup Challenge morphed from an idea to a real world community challenge rather quickly.

Steemit user @a1-shroom-spores brought it up in Canna-Curate Discord that growers were doing some really cool micro-grows in Solo Cups. Then it was I bet I can do better Solo Cup grow than you. Next, the challenge was formerly issued. Finally, it was asked if the Solo Cup Challenge could be brought to Smoke.io.

The creator's only request is @canna-curate hold the challenge!

What is The Red Solo Cup Challenge?


It's simple! Grow a cannabis plant from start to finish in a red solo cup! The person who harvests the most bud at the end of the challenge wins! Please weigh your trimmed, wet buds on a digital scale when the final entry is made

Rules:
  • No transplanting
  • No auto flowers
  • One cup per entry
  • No taking dirt out
  • From seed only

The competition will end when the last person flowers. Let's try to make this around a two month competition. Deadline entries will be 7 days after this post is made. Reply in the comment section that you would like to join so #canna can keep up with your progress.

Let's have fun with this! Make some posts of your progress and share what you are doing using the #solocup tag.

Prizes

There will be a prize for the winner. The prize is undecided at the moment but at least one smoke.io has already committed to prize sponsorship. Stay tuned for prize announcement!

I am currently attempting to grow my first plants. I have 3 seeds I have started in soil and am waiting to see them sprout, and I took 3 seeds and germinated them in the paper towel method. I have one more seed. Guess I am buying some solo cups tomorrow...

·

Sweet! It should be fun!

·
·

if I can get them to grow, I transplanted the paper towel germinated seeds today in fact. I took some photos but haven't had the time to process them yet. Plan to document my journey of trying to grow my own. We will see what happens....

I will sign up....have some new seeds in the mail #canna

·

Sounds good brotha

·
·

Seeds go into the water/ paper towel in 7 days ? Or germinated seeds into the soil ? Do we start right away ? Or seeds into the water on Dec 27th ?

·
·
·

Start right away. and if there good seed they will show tap roots in a few days

·
·
·
·

Ok.... thanks.... putting them in water tonight. (done) https://smoke.io/grow/@offgrid/my-solo-cup-challenge-offgrid-preparations

I should probably reply lol. Almost forgot. I am in.

Just a solo cup is enough to grow! Does it need trimming like a bonzai tree? Can’t wait for this one to pan out!

·

Some bending like a bonsai will probably be key to win!

·

Ich denke schon dass man die pflanze auch im becher indoor gut steuern kan. Wen man alle register ziehen darf. Coole challange. Wäre gerne dabei.

·

Statt wie ein bonsai schneiden empfehle ich dir mit licht und lichtdauer zu arbeiten sowie die richtige schnitte setzten. Das kan ein langes event werden je nach dem wie viel veg. time und sorte man hat. Mann... Wäre gerne mit am start. Allen teilnehmern wùnsche ich viel erfolg.

I am in, I will go buy a couple cups tomorrow and grow a pink kush. No other things other then we need it to be a solo cup? meaning I can grow under any light right?

swweeet

·

Found a cool package of Solo cups at Your Independent Grocer for $2

·
·

Dollarama was 1.25 for 18

·
·
·

Even better.

Can we grow our cups outdoor?

If so... I'm in!

·

Why not it don't say anything about indoor,

·

Yes dont see why not

·

Lucky you. It will be -30 Celsius here in a few days.

·

2 months from start to flower may be a tad difficult in sunny SA.

·
·

I was thinking I could put a black bag over it after a week or two and force the bitch to flower.

EDIT : but also rules states :

The competition will end when the last person flowers. Let's try to make this around a two month competition.

So I can just be the last to flower :D

·
·
·

This works. A buddy mine always grows bruce banner and it takes to long to fully flower so he keeps it low anand puts a bag on it in August to flip it early..

Can we paper towel germinate or does it need to be seed in soil germination?

·

You can start the seeds anyway you like.

So bad I can't participate :(

·

Maybe you can when #hashkings comes out!

·

Me 2... I am on parol xD

What a cool fricking contest. Best one I have ever seen here. Too bad I will not compete as I do not have anything to grow. But I will surely follow all others that do. Can't wait for results.

Have done open organic planting lets see how well they perform in a solo cup...needs to get fresh seeds for planting

I don't know anything about growing but, what are 'auto flowers'? Is it like auto voters? :D

·

cannabis needs 12 hours of dark and 12 hours of light to induce flowering indoors. In fall the sun goes down earlier making days shorter, which makes the plant think its going to die,so it makes flowers to reproduce. Auto flowers do not need a light change to flower. They automatically flower when they start growing.

·
·

Yeah, going on this. Autos are from places that see light for so long like 20 hour days or more so they have learned how to flip them selfs to induce mating in the long days of russia.

This are called ruderalis just the term auto comes from it auto flipping and the strains we are smoking they are bread with normal cannabis to keep the high THC levels

·
·
·

Yeah it makes sense. I am a bit of a northerner myself and have had to adjust to very little daylight this time of year ;)

·
·

I had no idea and thanks for taking the time to answer. A lot of the time a lot of the grow info goes over my head (a lot of the smoke too) but I find it all really interesting and hopefully I either live somewhere or they relax the local laws so I can take a more active role.

Amazing, love the layout of your post! I just cant seem to figure that out yet. ☹😢

·

@toker wrote this one up, he is pretty knowledgeable with the markdown, consider to vote for him for witness.

Woot! I just got my medical mj card, significantly raising my 6 plant limit. Count me in!

·

right on!!!!

Think I'll join too

·

hell yes

How I wish I could able to plant it but it is prohibited here.

·

When the game @hashkings comes out you can have the same fun growing, without getting in trouble.

that plant is beautyfull.. on photo! great type of cultive

·

Thank you

so cool. i guess its high time @canna_curate making it legally green

Interesting challenge, sad that I can not do it, not because it's illegal where I live, it's because I do not have any seeds at hand. I even imagine where to put the red cup. Good luck to everyone in the challenge.

Oh man i only have three days to get my supplies ready! I wanna do this too! Maybe if i dont get to this in time there will be another solo cup challenge?

·
