        Me to at least the 2 other dark devil are going to give a few ounces I hope lol

      Everybody who has posted pics here are doing fabulously - even you oldjarhead100 , most people wouldn't post pics of an attempted bonsai plant - hehehe - just kidding OJH, its has great color.
      Guess we can't grow mini bushes like JohnEmad - which look better than great by the way.

      Hey Mr.furley - what do we do if our plants finish before April 10? Measurements? Pics? What info do we need to collect?

      Thanks for everything guys - stay safe during these trying times.

        Hey Canuck I have some tomato plants that are not supposed to get much bigger but continue to produce aptly named the Micro Tom lol ,now if I could only bring the bonsai plant to the farmers market I could sell a bunch of them lol

        Yeah - just pretend you don't know what kind of bonsai you grew.

      If you are finishing up your plant before the set dates for judging please get the following information.

      1) Several pictures of your plant and only the sole cup plant you intend to enter in the picture in natural light.

      2) please use a Tape measure, full size Bic lighter, or other common item to show size of the finished plant.

      3) weigh your plant wet and dry if possible.

      4) retain the information on the days of your grow(veg/flower, auto/photo)

      it would be nice if everyone would share their watering practices and nutrient schedule for future Grower reference, but it's not mandatory.

      Thanks Canuck147

        Watering? I can barely keep up with her watering every 24 hours. And thanks for posting the info - I only asked cuz it looked like other guys were finishing.

        And it's difficult watering in that little cup - little tippy cup that they are - I stand mine up in the drain in the sink to water.

        Put a few more rocks in the cup first OJH

      Today is day 77 for the Gorilla Glue, and she keeps on stacking. She is, however, very close to harvest. I could probably take her tonight if I wanted to!

        She is just over 21 inches (not including the cup). I got to say the drip feed was a big help is getting her fed in a pretty easy way. I am a couple of weeks behind the pack so we'll see where we are come early April.

      Solo GG#4 is moving along...a lot slower than i expected but seems to be with the same time line as her sister plant which was started the same day, but wasnt restricted to this dinky little cup. Took her out of the hammock for a measurement and pic's. Following General Hydroponics feed schedule, was feeding every other day but seems to be drying out much quicker this last week..

        shes looking good

      So just chugging along at this point. Seems like she is picking up a little speed. Still just using the fox farms tiger blood and big bloom. She’s right at about 19”.

      My other girl is 22” and only has one set of pistils. Seems likes she’s still getting taller rather than blooming. Will wait it out another week and hopefully she takes off.

      Some crazy plants you all have! Interesting to see so many different takes, for a new guy like me.

        Official Entry into the GWE Solo Cup Grow Off, 2020.
        Day 76 and the Walter White Auto by Mephisto has finished her run. All the top flowers showed 20% amber or more and it happened over just a few days going from cloudy to amber quickly.
        Germinated Jan 1st. Planted in solo cup on the 2nd. Broke ground on the 3rd. Almost 12 weeks to the day and a week past Breeders stated duration for the grow.
        Used a drip system in a 5 gallon pail on a timer with variable feedings from once to 4 times a day using Remo Nutrients. Abandoned the drip system due to warm nutrient solution having fast swinging ph. Hand watered for last 3-4 weeks. 4 days flush.Training was Ponytailing 8 hrs a day every second day for about 8 days and the rest was natural with some defol and trimming as needed. Walter White was a pleasure to grow
        Height 15 inches, Wet Weight 213 grams. Will post the dry weight in 4 or 5 days.
        This has been a blast to try and will do it again sometime in the near future.

          Yeah no doubt Wally is in contention for the win, I called it a couple of months ago. I'm just glad I don't have to stand next to these guys all holding our plants being judged in front of everyone lmao.

          No pics for me just yet as I'm battling the Borg in my tent.Han will make it to the show date but it's probably off with its head right after.

          She’s finally stopped stretching after hitting 23.5”. No signs of stress so far, and the nugs are slowly fattening. There’s a lot of good contenders out there, but still plenty of time too! I just hope mine makes the deadline.

            JohnEmad 😆 we shall see...I think you stole all the thunder with Walter White. I can’t wait to hear what the dry weight comes in at! Keep us posted.

          Finding it hard to give solo GG#4 auto enough light with a crowded tent. But she doesnt seem to be far off her free range sister in a five gal pot. The buds are just starting to fatten up now. I dont think they'll be done for end of month.

                Almost sounds like I know what I'm doing - but really I'm just a caregiver to the little plant - she is the real star - I'm just letting her grow on her own - no topping or lst.

                Yup - autoflowers

              So my plant had this weird thing happen at 81 days. I took her out of the tent to take pics of her, and her leaves just started to fall off. They just kept on falling off, until barely any remained!

              I have pics to show the problem, I hope you guys can help me.

              I figured I would take precautionary measures and let her hang upside down for a while until I figure out what to do next with her. It might sound crazy, but I'm thinking putting her in a bowl and smoking her in about a week might be the only solution.
