    OK so finally got the solo cup girl harvested and dried. Life was crazy around the 10th and she was not done and it was what it was. But my OCD won't let me leave this incomplete so here she is.

    I torched the first seedling by putting her too close to the 600W MH. The next sprout, this one that made it, when I first planter her I filled the cup with soil but when I went to water her the water literally ran off the top of the soil and onto the tent floor. So I had to get inventive.

    Growing with the cup being 3/4 perlite and a layer of soil/perlite mix (about the depth of a peat plug) and the improvised drip feeder with the IV made the set up work for me. It let me water once a day by filling the bag and letting the plant have good drainage. Also I cut holes in the side of the cup and lined it with some cheese cloth in a nod to the fabric pots that I have had a bunch of successful grows with. I fim'd the top about a week before 12/12 bu mostly just let it grow with very minor defoliation. She was thin and branchy the whole time.

    Ended up with 29 grams of some good stuff, Grand Daddy Purple, and a fun grow.

      Was thinking the same thing...love the kitchen, great plant too👍

    After 129 days I chopped both of my solo cup girls. The coco cup was a beauty. Despite it's small size, I managed to get 8.3g off of her. The DWC cup did much better, almost a full oz I got 26.9g. I just put the buds into Grove bags to cure, I'm excited to see how they smoke. This obviously wasn't the best strain choice for the 100 day portion of the challenge but I'm real happy with how they turned out.

        Well this was a nice comp, with some great grows.
        A real shame I missed it, security issues stopped growing for 9 months!
        Only got back to it in April.
        A friend of mine got me into solo cups and I have been having a blat growing them.
        I thought this might be a nice place to post my Solo Cups.

          Kind of makes you reconsider your whole set-up don't it ?

          Definitely makes me think about all the soil and coco I’ve wasted over the years
