    ... yup, the hydro nutters usually have the advantage here,...we shall see!
    Oh, no worries on the basics mate (and I agree on all accounts :biggrin:), plus I have her rigged proper for stability (trying to not be part of the "spills" in thrills chills and spills"...orchid growing has tuned that skill up a lot- :rofl: -- nothing like watching a high$$ rare species type take a swan dive to the floor and get damaged, especially an emerging flower spike!- :cuss:...... I was musing over if you or other small volume experienced folken use light reduction or lower T to keep her in low gear during growth... it's funny, here we are trying to hold them back, not spur them on- :biggrin: I had help in the 2L Comp', the damn soil was a shite batch, screwed that whole first round up in fact! Not his time though...:eyebrows: :cheers:

    I wasn't trying to teach me granny to suck eggs :biggrin:

    The SC 101 was for any passers by 2 :oops1: avoid early slip ups :biggrin:

    Lighting cycles of intensity and temp really interest me, but I am stuck with what I have so no experiments my way.

    That said, I do run my tent perpetual so my solo cups in veg are for a large portion of thier day sat in the shade of other plants IMG_20190809_130045.jpg

    Are we trying to hold them back during growth ?,, :pop:

    I keep passing this little patch of Scottish wild orchid and meaning to take a pic of one to show you, they only about 8 inches tall and have like bonzai flowers, they quite common, no one believes me when I tell the they are orchids :cheers:

    :greenthumb: ooooo, that's a nice chunky gal there Hairy'! I used to see a lot of tiering before, now not so much...:shrug: done right, it's a great method!
    Well, pulling off the "Bonsai effect" on a young growing plant is no simple task,.. many of the past tiny volume growers got off to a good start, but later crashed and burned when the plant basically chocked out, root-rotted, or some other nutritional issue... I guess I'll see when I try to keep this one in shorter light hours, and a bit cooler, much as I can!

    You said the "O" word! :rofl: ... I'm a species hobbiest snob, and used to work at a species specialty place a while back... Man, what a 24/7 grow-boner that place was! I love the weird one most, and my avatar is of my favorite family, the Stanhopinae..... There were so many I wanted, some were OK at home, others, fuggeddaboutit- :doh:.... Mainly the real jungle types that needed such heat and RH%,... I dig the natives though! I see some local ones here now and again, terrestrial types, very herbal/annual like in their growth and cycling,... flowers look much like a mini-cymbidium- :thumbsup: they make bulb-like deals (forget the bloody botanical term for orchid "tubers/corms?).... Snap me a pic sometime mate, I'd enjoy seeing that! :thanks:

    Week 3

    They chunky girls :thumbsup:

    I taken first branch or two of them, I would have liked to have had more stretch but all said and done they healthy girls. IMG_20190815_160926.jpg IMG_20190815_160919_1.jpg

    :toke:

    The chunky girl is a humbolt Dr Greenthumb's Dedoverde Haze she has a heavy pine, citrusey diesel smell :thumbsup:

    The tiering is more a result from when I get a pack seeds I set one off in a bigger pot and all the rest in solo cups, if I ain't happy with the one in bigger pot I can just swap with a solo cup:thumbsup:

    This is a unusual tier,, :thumbsup:more a stacked corner grow IMG_20190527_025244.jpg
    Sorry no pic yet on the plant, the council strimners have been going crazy on the hedge rows :shrug:they chop anything the wild sweat pea, the thistle which can be some stunning plants even though regarded as a weed


    Hi Mark :toke:,



    Early days pal :thumbsup:, solo pot growing is a roller coaster and not all reach the end :woohoo1:

    My money is on pop or MaƱ'O'Green :biggrin:

    #teamdinafem for the Win :vibe:

    I never did it again :smoking:


    So the solo cups,,

    They short and bushy, they been a struggle to leaf tuck and get some stretch, I knocked one over with damage so I might train that in some way visually pleasing :thumbsup:

    They maybe short but they are also bushy and vigorous little ladies by the look of things :pass:

    Don't count yourself out of the running mate :thumbsup:

    As you said a Solo Cup Challenge is not always completed by all that start, it's not an easy challenge and so far your doing a fine job :pass:

    Keep it up!

    All the best :bong:
