It's been a while since we've last updated you on the progress of the 2019 Growoff's. All still well on track.

We've been finalising things behind the scenes. Getting the genetics in order, getting prize sponsors onboard, sorting logistics etc.

Here's what has been established. We welcome suggestions

Getting your seeds

Totemic Genetics has very kindly offered to sponsor his Chocolope seeds for this year's Growoff. 

A local online headshop has very kindly offered to distribute the seeds for us. You will be notified by PM on how to acquire your seeds. It will involve making a small order on the store and of course paying for the courier. You won't be paying anything for the seeds.

Prize Categories

  1. Best overall plant - 1st, 2nd and 3rd
  2. Best trained plant - grower that has put their training techniques to best practice. 
  3. Best Hydro Grow
  4. Best Organic Grow
  5. Biggest Cola 
  6. Highest THC Content - 6 finalists from the Indoor Growoff and 6 finalists from the Outdoor Growoff will be selected to have their bud tested. All expenses paid. The finalist with the highest THC content will take home this prize.

Do you guys think there could be more suitable prize categories not on offer here? We can't have any more than 6 categories per Growoff.

Competition Procedure

Each club will have a tab called Growoff Diaries. It's here where you will start your own Topic(thread) and log your entry.

  • You'll be sent 6 regular Totemic Genetics Chocolope seeds to grow out. You'll need to try grow out as many plants as you can to get the 1 female which you will run as your entry. 
  • You can choose to start your plant whenever you want to within the competition starting date and closing date. Indoor growers can choose whenever they want to flip to flower.  
  • Only 1 female can be chosen and you cannot switch plants. Your chosen plant will be the 1 you stick with till harvest.
  • You'll need to log all the plants you have germinated until you choose your final female which will then become the only logged plant.
  • You'll need to update your diary at least once per week, each entry has to have at least one photo. The reason for this is to ensure that we'll be following the same plants throughout.
  • For your final update before harvest please you need to have your plant alongside a tape measure and see if you can indicate the plants height in a photo with the tape measure. Overall height does not play a large factor in judging but it is nonetheless a factor. Then of course to provide as many pics at as many angles as possible before harvest.
  • To qualify for the Biggest Cola prize you'll need to have an image where a ruler or tape measure is placed in front of the cola if you'd like to enter for the prize.

Sponsors

A few sponsors are onboard. We're just finalising prizes and this will be announced soon!

Starting & Closing Dates

These haven't changed

  • Germination date for the Indoor Growoff will be 25/05/19 and the deadline will be 15/10/19
  • Germination date for the Outdoor Growoff will be 18/09/19 and the deadline will be 15/06/20

Judging Panel

The judges will be:

  • Myself
  • Totemic Genetics
  • Prize Sponsors

If you guys have any questions please do ask :-thumbsup

@Toby Count me in please 🙂 

One question... the seeds are they all feminised?

The seeds are Regular. Totemic is working on fems and will likely have next year but at present it's regular seeds

GROWERS FROM THE REST OF SA

Seeds are now with the online store ready to go out. Couple technical issues with the online store that need to be sorted out before the orders can be made. Once things are ready I'll be contacting you guys via PM.

We'll most likely be extending the starting date for the indoor growoff by a week to compensate for this delay.

@420SA

There is a prize category for SCROG (2.Best trained plant - grower that has put their training techniques to best practice), but no prize category for SCROG's sister SOG.

Maybe include SOG as another prize category or include SOG into the SCROG/Training category.

To those that have received their seeds and are taking part in the Indoor Growoff. Feel free to get your diaries going in the mean time with a pic of the seeds in their container as mentioned in the Growoff Diary Rules & Guidelines thread, which you need to please read!

We need proof that you have received the seeds :-thumbsup
