The Party Cup Side Challenge - Rules, Information, & Questions
The goal of this challenge is to grow a plant using only a plastic party cup as its container!
- The cup should be no larger than 18 oz.
- You can modify the cup in any way, but the plant’s roots must stay inside of the cup during the entire grow!
- Autos, Photoperiod, Regulars, Fems - Everything allowed
-Any training method is allowed
There will be a special prize for the winner of the Party Cup Challenge! To enter this side challenge, you will need to register for the PTGC, indicate that you would like to participate in the Party Cup Side Challenge, and keep a grow journal documenting your main grow as well as your Party Cup plant. You can create a separate grow journal for your Party Cup plant or keep it as a part of your main journal; it’s up to you how you’d like to organize and record your progress during the PTGC!
If you’ve already registered for the PTGC and want to sign-up for the side Challenge, you can edit your grow box design on your grow journal to include the Party Cup Side Challenge at any time. The system will automatically update your grow box design to include which side challenges you are participating in.
The group leaders will be in charge of following all the grow journals in their group and nominating growers for each side challenge. From those nominees, the Steering Committee will vote to determine who the winners will be at the end of the PTGC!

Question..... is the party cup plant to be flipped 12/12 Oct 1st with the other competition. Or free to start/ flip before then? Thanks
Are clones allowed for the Party Cup Challenge? I'm thinking about cloning one of my plants from the PTGC for it.
Is it strictly limited to a solo cup or would any all plastic container of no more than 18oz be allowed? Specifically I want to use these, 1qt plastic kefir bottles cut in half-ish, mostly because they are food safe plastic that I already have a recycle bin full of every week.
