Welcome to the 1st Unofficial FC Party Cup Challenge (Inspired by @Uncle_Al). That's right, we're going to test our growing skills by restricting you to a single container. The 16oz party (solo) cup.

16 US fl. oz to mL
1 US fluid ounce = 29.5735295625 mL.
16 × 29.5735295625 = 473.17647296 mL.
Rounding that figure, we get our answer. 16 US fl. oz = 473.176 mL (or 1 US pint).

There is absolutely no restriction on medium, seed stock, ferts or anything plant related. The only restriction is that you must be growing in a plastic or Styrofoam party cup and your roots must stay contained within that party cup.

The plant cannot be grown in another container/system then transplanted to the cup.

If you want to do hydro, feel free, but you will be using a party cup.

Just post your updates any time. That'll help to keep them spread out. I don't think we want to restrict it to certain days of the week, because that kind of stuff is hard for a group of stoners. Sounds rule-ish anyways!

Initial entry must be POSTED before end-of-day 11/30/17 to count you in.

Just post your initial update showing your freshly cut cloneling or moisturizing beanling, and a secondary update showing your rooted or planted clone, or a sprout. I suppose just that second one would probably be enough.

Updates after that just have to be enough to show us convincingly that it's the same plant. 3 weeks would be stretching it, I think. But shit happens. So no matter what, at least take the pics! You can always catch up on the posting.

We can police it as a group as we go anyway. If anything seems iffy, call them out!

:cool: "Award" categories ... This is primarily for bragging rights only :imp:

Highest Yield
Largest plant
Best contest photo
Best timed harvest (planned harvest date must be "declared" before 12/12 flip, at germination for autos)
First to harvest
Last to harvest
Most Epic Fail
Prettiest plant
Ugliest plant
First to die

(more categories may be added later any ideas let us know)

Well, that's pretty much it. If you are in, speak up. The fun begins now. :hello:

If anyone want's anything changed added or has any ideas post up :)

Here's some inspiration, good luck everyone let's have some fun and see what records we can set!!! :sun:

Got out my measuring cup, the clear cups are dead on 16oz. Filled to the rim. The red cups have a slight margin below the rim. Both cups have 16 molded into the bottoms. Use of the two cups allows inspection of root development while blocking light from roots. These cups are Walmart branded and purchased at Walmart as well. Solo name brand cups are about twice the price. I would sure like to see some competitive interest.

This competition is pretty serendipitous... but I'm eventually gonna put these in 1-3 gallon pots. Here's what I've got, half are already poking up, and I've got just as many germing as you see here :)
Mostly dank mix, fruit bowl, and spice mix, and a bunch of local flora! 20171021_034039.jpg

Great .. what strains do you have planned ? Nice looking soil mix , whats in the cups a mix ?
@Sunshine 's Dank mix, spice mix, fruit bowl, a few indicas, and some no name hybrids. I've got peat moss mixed with compost and perlite, and I added a couple pinches of blood/bone meal and Epsom salt, and enough dolomite lime to balance the acidity. Ph is 6.5-7.0 and ppm is 40-50.

I cant wait to see these curious strains by Sunshine you do in the cups ! How do you germinate ? Paper towel method ?
What are you using to measure the ppm ? Can i see a pic of what you use ?
I soak in water for 24 hours and then put them in moist paper towels until they pop roots. I use a tds meter (i think?) That @Uncle_Al left here by mistake. I'm taking good care of it for him, but might as well use it from time to time. Do you need a pic of my germ container or the meter?
