Welcome all


Since there are a couple taking part here is the official thread for the Growdown


Some simple rules to follow:

- Anything except Capsicum Annuum
- Max soil volume 40ltrs (I.e. 50ltr pot / 40ltr soil)
- Kratky acceptable (for the adventurous types)
- To start seedlings anything goes (max pot size 1ltr)
- After 1ltr pots its into soil or kratky
- No limit on pot upsizing (0.5 - 1 - 2 - 5 - 10 - 20 - 40)
- No moving parts (pumps, etc) if hydro starting
- Fabric grow bags acceptable

- Non-Southern Hemisphere welcome

- Total pods weighed in wins


Post your starting photo of your seeds and lets get cracking

Southern Hemisphere Growdown 2019 - Proposal

06 March 2019 - 01:02 PM

So we getting to the last couple of months of 2018 growdown and time to think about what we can do next.


My proposal for this year is simple. Anything variety is game (except Annuum) and it has to be grown using 40l of soil or less (no hydro)


Points based on total weigh in and number of pods (maths to follow)


That way seeds become irrelevant (we all have something stuck away) and it will all be down to variety chosen and soil used


Any other ideas from those keen?
