    Whats up guys and gals. As you all know we are gonna have some fun trying to grow a plant in a 16 fluid oz. plastic cup from start to finish. Our question is how many wanna join in on the fun?

    Here are the rules:

    1) You must start your plant from seed. (sorry folks no clones)

    2) Everyone must use a 16 oz. party cup from start to finish

    3) Your grow must be done in some kind of soil mixture (no hydro)

    4) You cannot cut the bottom off your cup

    5) You can put some drain holes in the bottom of your cup

    6) You must document your grow from start to finish giving an
    update once a week

    7) This is not for beginning growers (if you decide to join in on the
    fun and come into some problems you may drop out and
    transplant at anytime

    8) If you have any questions please post them in the other thread. Here is the link. Questions posted here will be deleted.
    http://www.marijuanapassion.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10427


    9) List : Seed, Soil, Nutes, Lights ect.

    10) Each member can only have one plant


    LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!!!

    Decided to start some new ones just for this. I picked the indoor mix for this project. I'm starting with five beans. I'm using some sand based soil from lowesmixed with several diff things(perlite, fish food made from shellfish, worm castings, etc.). I'll be vegging under a 175w MH, 26w cfl and 18w(I think, it's the smaller ones) fluoro. I'll be flowering under a 250 and 100w HPS, Five cfls. Pic 1-indoor mix, pic 2- cup. Btw, thnx TBG...finally got that flash working!

    ok i have some seeds that have been germinating for 24 hours in a wet paper towel sealed in a ziplocl plastic bag on a heating pad they are ready to be put in soil. so one is going in a 16 oz cup and the rest in pots. i have to run to the store cause i have no 16 oz plastic cups.
    seed that i have are from some good mids
    soil Recycled Miracale Gro from my last grow. I mixed in fresh miracale grow with the old (Elephant Man will like that lol)
    Lighting is a 60 or 65 watt flourex not sure lol
    when i get the cup i will take some pics of the seed going into the cup good luck all. and great idea TBG:D

    Not too sure what this is. Just over a week old, germinated in a jiffy pellet.
    It's either Master Kush, Afghan, Pure Power Plant, Skunk #1 or Nirvana Special !

    One third perlite and vermiculite, 2 thirds westlands compost, small sprinklings of bat guana and fish blood and bone meal, and the tiniest pinch of lime

    Have Biobizz Grow and Bloom too.

    Put layer of pebbles in the bottom of the cup for better drainage, planted and watered well

    At the moment it is under 4 x 125 W 6500k Envirolites
    Then will be put under 400 W HPS

    I've drunk out of this baby !!

    Ok this is day three of being in the cup. i just wattered it alls looking good but it kinda looks like it might be streching for light so im gonna put it 3inches from the light. it was about 5inches from the light so maybe this will stop it from streching(what u all think?) I have room for more dirt but i want to wait until the plant gets bigger before i add more. have a great day everyone peace.

    Hi Folks, I decided to join in the fun.

    Seed: White Satin from Mandala Seeds (Never tried this strain before)

    Soil: "Organic Choice" Potting soil 50%, Perlite 25%, Vermiculite 25%, with a few pebbles on the bottom of the cup to help with drainage.

    Pot: 16 oz. plastic cup (blue) with holes in the bottom for drainage

    Fertilizer: Vita-Grow 3-part (non-organic)

    Veg Lights: Two 24" fluorescent (20 Watts each)

    Flower Lights: Not sure yet. I might try out some LED grow lights. If not, I will stick with the flos. Then again, I might throw it under the 400W HPS. We'll see when the time comes.

    Started the seed tonight using the paper towel method: Seed folded into a wet paper towel which is sandwitched between two small plates and set on top of my cable box.

    Change of plan instead of growing outside i'm gonna grow under 3 enviro light fluro's that chuck out 3000 lumens, it's my only option, then flower under hps. my seed cracked today so i'll probably plant tommorow. i could only get a clear cup so i taped around it, (hope thats allowed)
