Here’s a grow comp that almost anyone can participate in. Using any photo period seed you choose, start the grow and run the entire time at a 12/12 lighting schedule, and do this in a maximum pot size of 3 liters (.79 gallons). This should be something that most of us can fit a small section of your flower tent. Here’s the setup

Rules:

  1. Must use a photo period seed
  2. maximum pot size is 3 liters
  3. any media or nutrient is acceptable 
  4. Plant can be seeded directly into container or transplanted but no pot can exceed 3 liters in size
  5. Nothing is allowed to be hanging from the pot, no wick or roots or hoses please.
  6. 3 months are allowed for this grow, ending date will be Monday the 4th of March, 2024 at 11:59:59pm GMT
  7.  Participants should run a diary in the Competition Diary section at Percy’s with at least one photo update every 14 days
  8. your diary title should begin with “12/12 Grow Challenge” so we can easily find them. Make sure your user name is also in the title somewhere 
  9. each grower should submit 2 pictures and a short description of the grow for judging
  10. judging will be done via Forum vote 
  11. prizes will be any two five packs of my Monkey beans (your choice), a very special collectors piece Monkey Pipe (if I showed you this one, everyone here at Percy’s would enter, it’s that cool!), stickers and such. 

Trying to keep this one as simple as possibly. There’s no specific starting time BUT there is a hard deadline so get moving Percy Growers. Time to show us something amazing 

BTW, I will be growing in this comp but I won’t be claiming any prize. If I win the vote, the prize goes to #2, just wanted to put that out there now.

Time to Pop and Get Growing!

@monkeydo I can definitely do this. What are we basing the winner in?  Best diary? Weight?

Be a good person!

@firetop95 OK, I can support that but since you’ve started 15 days early it would only be fair to have your final date to be 15 days early too. If you’ll agree to a February 19, 2023 deadline I think that would be fair to everyone

@growdad there’s no single goal to this grow. Personally I don’t like yield weight comps unless I can physically see the harvest because there are lots of ways to increase that number unfairly. We just did a diary writing competition and personally, I’m not ready to judge another one till next summer (Seedsman). Let’s just call the goal to be “people’s choice”. Submit 2 pictures and a short write up and try to influence the voters your way. I’ll go ahead and post the picture of the prize Monkey Pipe but because I really want this to go to a real Percy’s member I’m adding the requirement that you must have been a member before the 3rd of December, 2023

This is a custom made 5 bowl revolver pipe with a second 5 bowl rotary. These are 5/8 inch bowls (about 17mm). The dollar is only for reference and isn’t included lol. Yes, it really does work and I can remember many sessions with my friends using one very similar to this. This is definitely a conversation starter when someone sees it for the first time

same question i was about to ask  i just started a bunch of seeds so i can work thru a couple strains  most are regs so i dont know which are males yet.

Would i have to select one in a pot that is different to show its the same plant? even though they are regs. or could i have say 3 and once in flower choose only 1 female ?

@mitsos tough one, that’s a 9 plant run against a solo. I want this to be fun but when we have prizes up for grabs, things get complicated. Let’s let everybody chime in with their thoughts and I’ll have a chat with Macky this afternoon.

So everyone, Mitsos wants to enter a SOG of micros sort of like Ed Rosenthal does, should we allow this?? Please be honest with your answer. I don’t want anyone complaining once the decision is done.
