Announcing the

Our Plant Training Grow Challenge is coming to its close! The challenge will officially end in late-December, right before we switch over to the New Year’s Grow Challenge. With the end of the challenge come the End of Grow Awards! We will be giving out prizes and awards for: Best Journal, Best Growmie, Best Recovery, and the winner of the Party Cup side challenge.

The PTGC End of Grow Awards will take place on Sunday, December 11th, at 6:30 PM PT / 9:30 PM ET in the chat room. Join us there to see the winners chosen and announced in real time, and to celebrate the end of a successful PTGC!

Growcast Sponsors the PTGC End of Grow Awards!

We are excited to announce that the prize sponsor of the PTGC End of Grow Awards is Growcast! Growcast is a podcast run by our good friend, Jordan River. Jordan and the Growcast team recently started their own cannabis seed company, called Growcast Seed Co. We have prizes from both Growcast and Growcast Seed Co included in this year’s PTGC End of Grow Awards!

The Prizes!

All PTGC End of Grow Award winners will receive a pack of cannabis seeds from Growcast Seed Co! Two of the winners will also receive a 6-month paid subscription to Growcast’s Patreon!

Each PTGC End of Grow Award winner will receive a 10-pack of Tectonic Truffle seeds (regular, photoperiod seeds) from Growcast Seed Co! Tectonic Truffle is a cross between two of Growcast Seed Co’s popular strains: Truffle Cake and Peachquake. The Tectonic Truffle seeds are sure to bring some major gas to the winners’ gardens! This will also be a fun opportunity for our winners to try growing a brand-new strain that they haven’t grown before!
