Rules

  • You must have more than 10 forum posts to enter
  • Your plant can only be entered once and only one entry per user per month is accepted!

  • Your entry must display a sign with:
    Your USERNAME
    The DATE (dd/mm/yy)
    The words ” Plant of the Month
    The FULL website name, “Percysgrowroom.com“.

  • The official entry sign is here:

     

  • image

     

  • A plant may be entered by creating your own sign, however one point will be added to the final vote of any entry using the above official sign.
  • If we have less than 5 entries, the contest will continue into next month. We must have 5 entries by months end in order to vote.

Prizes!!

Depends on the number of entries, more entries will equal a more substantial prize, plus the all important...

POTM Bling

To Enter Plant of the Month

Add a picture of your plant to this thread, and make sure you have a sign, with ALL of the requirements, clearly visible in the photo. This must be a physical sign, either printed or on a tablet, in your photo.

The picture really matters just as much as a spectacular plant. Feel free to add some details about your grow in the topic too. Though a picture tells a thousands words, a little bit about the life of the plant can really tell the best stories. Good lighting and a nice backdrop can really make your entry stand out from the rest. Take the time to really look at your background and lighting before you take your photo, it can really make a huge difference.

 

 

Good luck everyone!!!

Here's a suggestion... After reading through entries, comments etc for a month (sometimes 2 months) it's time to vote. Most people don't remember the comments made by the grower after that length of time and I don't think everyone is going back to read everything so the actual voting is only on the pic not the written description. I think the comments made with the picture entry should be in the voting section also?

What's everyone else think? Nerd

@hart I think we can accommodate that with some limitations. Maybe one sentence and the person entering the plant needs to make sure the actual sentence you want to use is in quotation marks like “this is my plant”. The description should be somewhat brief and easily identified for me to include in the vote thread. Most of these polls are created in the dead of night and I don’t have the luxury of asking the entrants any questions. Would this work for you or do you have other suggestions. Any other members can also add their voice to this suggestion pro or con.

@hart I agree maybe a brief description of the grow along with the pic

 

Sativa to change the things I can, Indica to accept the things I can’t.

I think the key word is "brief", don't need a journal, lol. I just thought it kind of redundant to add these details about the grow and life of plant if no one remembers any of it when it's time to vote. Perhaps it's just me, an old timer stoner patient with alzheimer's and the memory of a gnat.

@hart i like this suggestion well all of these gives the actual meaning and passion behind the grow its self 

Give a stoner some bud he will smoke for a day, but show a stoner how to grow and he will smoke forever. 🤣💚

I think Monkey has a good idea with the quotation marks and to make it 1 or 2 sentences max. I think this will do a few things like add some personality to the photos along with some details about how that plant has grown to that point. 

Let it groooowwww...let it GROOOOWWW!!!
