Welcome to the 2019 Community Grow Off.
Posting to this thread is for participants only.
All who wish to participate may post their entry now with a comprehensive support ticket detailing their grow op, materials, and genetics.
The quality of your entry will set the tone for everyone’s expectations for your grow.
Keep in mind the non-participant grow off thread (which will run in parallel to the 2019 Community Grow-Off thread) called 2019 Grow Off “OFF TOPIC” Discussion. There will be no discussion of participant grows there. The grower you help will be disqualified.
This contest is open to ALL ILGM members;
there are NO restrictions at all on environment / equipment / method, only the container size. (The primary rule being that roots must remain
entirely inside the 5 gal. maximum size container at all times).
The true purpose of the contest in my eyes is to drive participation and cooperation on the site and bring members together in a spirit of sharing knowledge and experiences of growing.
All participants will use their own skills to grow. No outside help! If you are caught cheating you’ll be dismissed. ( So having a deficiency you have to figure it out.) Remember this is a grow of skill.
All participants will use seeds of any Cannabis variety female.
Specify strain/hybrid/breeder lineage in as much detail as possible.
Participants can enter up to 5 plants (one plant per 5 gal pot), and will choose the one to be judged just before they flip to flower, or for autos must choose their entry prior to flower, preflower is okay.
Seeds will be germinated at the starting date Jan 1, 2019, but late germination permitted until the end of Jan.
There will be no entries accepted after Jan 1. If you submit your entry Jan 1 and plan to drop seeds later that’s fine. But after Jan 2 no new tickets will be received.
All roots must remain inside the 5 gal container for the duration of the challenge and may require trimming. Any type of feeding is allowed, but if roots grow out the bottom/sides of the container they must be trimmed immediately.
Harvest, dry, cure, pictures and smoke report must be completed no later than July 31, 2019.
Keep your photos and grow updates one per week at least. Missing 3 or more weeks of updates disqualifies a participant. So, keep up steady updates for maximum participation and to be considered in the winners poll.
It is expected of all participants to keep a good attitude in the spirit of community and sharing of knowledge and experiences. Let’s all have FUN.
Completed Grows will be judged by the ILGM community in a poll upon completion
of the contest.
Finished grows will be judged on:
1.) Quality of the information given
2.) Frequency and presentation of updates
3.) Quality of photographs and / or videos (linked from youtube)
4.) Explanation and details
5.) Design of the grow and training concepts
6.) Smoke report
7.) Answers to questions about the grow
8.) Quality and Quantity of the harvest
Entries close Jan 1 (UPDATE ENTRIES CLOSE JAN 31)
Germinate by Jan 31
The Grow Off ends July 31, 2019.
