  1. I'm gonna update the rules soon regarding greenhouses. Greenhouses are allowed but supplemental light won't be allowed
  2. I wouldn't risk forcing a plant to show sex by means of starving light, finding out sex and then essentially revegging the plant if its a female. You'll be causing unnecessary stress and may encounter a hermie or two Much better to clone for sex
  3. I'm gonna be getting hold of some samples soon as well. At least 15, most likely next week. So the 420SA Store will be another option as well.
  4. Outdoor Growoff Queries This thread is for any queries and/or questions you may have regarding the Growoff. Simply post your query/question below
  5. Have a few fat ones today to celebrate the day Last year on this day, cannabis and cannabis cultivation was decriminalized for personal use in South Africa. A historic judgement for SA and worldwide cannabis culture as a whole. Yes, the process hasn't been perfect but I'm sure we can all say that we've been able to smoke and grow with a lot more peace of mind in our own homes.... as it should be. Look at how the industry has already grown in the last year. Businesses, brands and shows are popping out of everywhere. Some with good intentions, some not... Clubs and initiatives have started. Awareness has skyrocketed. As whole it has been a positive 1st year. Now parliament has a year left to decide on the best way forward for cannabis legislation. A nervy time as we let politicians decide our fate with the plant Negativity aside! Enjoy the day Side note... we really need a name for this day. "Dagga Day" doesn't work for me though 🤔 although the word does have a lot of history with the plant in this country, it's a really kak word!!

  12. Note: this is the first draft of rules for our 2019/2020 Growoff and may be changed.You will be notified of important changes should they be made. Before you get going with your Growoff diary please read the following Rules & Guidelines Basic Rules Create your own topic/thread underneath the Growoff Diaries board. The topic title must be your Username ONLY. For example if your username is John33 your topic must be called John33 and nothing else. Your first diary entry must be please be a shot of your Totemic Chocolope seed pack that you received for the outdoor Growoff in its container. As proof that you are growing out the correct seeds. You can start your diary and do this before the starting date of the growoff. The seed germination date is the 18th of September 2019 but you can choose to start your plants whenever you want to within the competition starting date and the 15th of June 2020 (Deadline Date). Please record the day that you start germination with a diary entry You'll need to grow as many of the 6 seeds supplied to you as your growing space can cope with. This will increase your chance of getting a female. The objective is to choose one female from the seeds you have grown out to continue with till harvest. Only 1 female can be chosen and you cannot switch plants after the selection. You will be married to her till harvest 💍 If competing for the bonus Explogrow prize you may keep the plants necessary to stay qualified for that prize. A final female will have to be chosen to compete for the official prizes. Log all the plants you grow from seed until you choose your final female which will then become the only plant you will log till harvest. Diary Updates - IMPORTANT! Diaries must be updated at least once every 2 weeks. Should you not update your diary at least once within a 14 day cycle you will get a reminder to update your diary. If you fail to update your diary within 24h of the reminder you will receive a 1st Warning If you fail to update your diary within 24h of your 1st warning you will receive a 2nd & Final Warning If you fail to update your diary within 24h of the 2nd warning you will be given a 3rd warning and you will be disqualified. Exceptions can be made though - if you notify us in your thread that you won't be able to update in time, or if you have a valid reason for not being able to update you can do so and you will stay in the competition. We want to keep you in the competition by all means possible but we also need transparency amongst competitors. A diary that hasn't been updated in 30 days will have to be disqualified - no excuses. Before Harvest For your final update before harvest please take a few shots of 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. Provide as many pics at as many angles as possible before harvest.
  13. The courier guy does have 2 different pricing structures for account holders. There is a prepaid flat rate option and then there's the standard account with fees that vary largely, its also this option where outlying areas lose out but main centers pay WAY less. Looks like TheHighCo uses a standard account.... If the courier deems you to be in an outlying area then TheHighCo has no choice but to work according to that and therefore can't give you free delivery. Sorry dude its a kak one. I'll PM another possible option for you to get your growoff seeds.
