      Photoshop! Hahaha. No you didn't miss a thing, I didnt speak of it and do have two set of holes.
      1) 8ish is on top of the cup for training purposes
      2) 20ish on bottom for drainage

      I am not concerned with root pruning in a small container, only drainage and training.

    OH this will be fun! Should I enter this year? I tried starting in a solo cup last year but it got root bound, what's the secret, do you guys take it out and break up the roots and put it back in or what?

        No that's just what I started one of my sour kush plants in. I went from that into a half gallon when I saw the roots spiraling at the bottom, and heard that clear cups aren't good for roots, even though they seemed happy.

        I DO want to run an autoflower start to finish in a solo, I just want tips so I don't kill it.

          Man, I have no idea ! I always use solo cups and my seedlings and clones always seem nearly rootbound after only 2-3 weeks. It will be a miracle if I actually finish without having to abandon the cup and pot up.

          homegrown I'm screwed I went with a short stocky plant because of the solo cup lol
          @Funky coco for a medium and water multiple times a day,if you look at the rest of the grow those are only 3 gallon pots and by watering 6 times a day they thrive ,I was amazed at how well they grew ,

          6 times a day? I don't remember to eat breakfast until 4:00 pm a lot of days, I'd have a hard time with that. I don't have any coco either and my peat moss has been outside for a long time so I refuse to bring it into my indoor garden. I only have Happy Frog and Ocean Forest on hand and inside.

        So is the goal for most yield? Would I best to run an autoflower under strong light and pump it out in a solo cup? Or try to slowly train and veg a photo plant?

          I was frightened, oldjarhead100. I have my computer hooked up to my VR glasses. Scared the shit out of me at first. Like 'BAM! BOOBS! DOUBLE BAM!' Photoshopped my neighbor's head on the lady using her hands as a bra. The neighbor is a 72 year old racist asshole who generally hates people. I'll print out the image and put it under his windshield wiper blade. Aught to be a real hoot! BAM!

        Welp no show for the 2nd WW auto. Two days ago I just put it into the soil cup cause she's being a Bi-och with a dome. Nothing so I scratched around in the cup found the seed lifted it closer to surface with a toothpick covered slightly with soil dome back on and I this time stuck under my t-5 why? hell I don't know maybe it's shy. So she can sit there and i'll wait couple more days then compost the whole deal. I will just observe the show going forward, i'll comment on the seed if she cracks surface.

          SoOrbudgal sendem back to new420guy! amnesia lemon kush seeds from last years grow both popped. the seedling that I planted on the 5th is 2 1/2 inches tall. That's the seed I salvaged from the grinder. I have one 26 watt CFL on it. I'm not turning on any big lights until I have more plants coming along.

          Ugh, sucks. I will bring you a few fresh ones. I'm starting a couple too, I may pull superdense out of the grow to actually grow it right and see if it really is "superdense", especially since I only have the one, and I have a boat load of Pure White Haze Fem and Sour60 regulars which are supposed to finish in 60 days.

        I am still going to enter this contest. I will not start mine before next sunday but I feel confident that I can catch up in that timetable.

        However saying that I'm used to growing in huge pots. So we will see. I'm to lazy to water all the time. That's what will get me.
        You may win the race, but you pass all the best things in life on the way.

        Beans are germing as we speak. I picked a decent looking Sour Kush auto seed. Saving my better ones for my proper grow. I popped 2 in paper towel in plastic bags.

        Going to run them out in solo cups with a mix of pro-mix and coco. I'll be popping my proper plants in a few more weeks when I can make space in the closet.

        I think I might have some ideas to make this solo cup grow work

          Hear me out.... Clear solo cup like I showed earlier. However double cupped in a black one incase of any light issues.

          Periodically take plant out to trim or train roots.

          Stick stiff coat hanger horizontally through the solo cup to give me some anchors to tie off to for training.

          No reason why those ideas won't help?

            You play with the roots?

          My grinder seed of at least half amnesia lemon kush genetics is 6 days old, and 2 1/2 inches tall. She was planted on the 5 th,and saw first light on the 8th. I don't know if you can see it, but there is a helmet head in her shadow I planted as a back up a few days ago. When it sheds its helmet I will transplant it into its own cup. This bitch is gonna eat you alive. does that sound too aggressive?

            Getting the seeds for this year's grow organized. Will be vegging indoors in the basement, and moving outdoors/the barn depending on temps for flowering in the spring. I want to avoid the summer's stifling heat. Will be planting from my Nirvana stock 1 Amnesia Haze, 1 Aurora Indica, 1 Girl Scout, 1 Master Kush, 1 OG Kush, 1 Original Glue, and 1 White Widow. From Seedsman 1 Jack Herer, and 1 Badazz OG Cheese. From Mandala seeds 1 Hashberry. From FastBuds 2 Green Crack Autos, and 2 Gorilla Glue Autos. I want to get these going so I can turn on some lights. The utility company has its hand out.

          All solo cup combatants up and growing. Gave them all a very light feeding 2 days ago.
          The dbl grape and creme de la chem going into autopots in a few days and are not part of the cup comp.
          Current grow:

          Creme de la Chem, Double Grape autos from Mephisto Genetics

          (in a solo cup) Walter White auto from Mephisto Genetics

Didn't even realize what i had done till i took some pics tonight. I have one Purple Ayahuasca from bag seed, 1 Hindu Kush, 2 GG#4 and 1 Quarter Pounder with Cheese. hahaha. One of these will be my solo grow contestant..probably one of the GG#4, and the others will go into the tent for next grow.

                  No, I just mixed up a small half gallon of promix with about 20% perlite, and went 50/50 all purpose and bloom, at their recommended levels. Won't be worried about dressing anything for a long time.
