Prizes and giveaways are part of the fun with growing together!
Welcome to the Spring Auto Flower Challenge (SAFC) Giveaway page! As a part of the Coco for Cannabis Grow Challenges, we host several competitions and giveaways that are open to all growers participating in the Challenge. Prizes help to keep everyone motivated and having fun throughout the Grow Challenge!
During the SAFC, we will have monthly prize drawings that all Challenge growers can be eligible for. We will also have special recognition for the Best Journals for the months of May and June. At the end of grow, we will save some of our best prizes for the winners of Best Overall Journal, Best Recovery, Best Growmie, and the winners of our Side Challenges, the Auto Supernova Challenge and the Party Cup Auto Challenge!
SAFC Prize Sponsors
We are very excited to partner with ViparSpectra as our title prize sponsor for the Spring Auto Flower Challenge! ViparSpectra is sponsoring the prizes for our Journal of the Month competitions, which will take place during the months of May and June. Additionally, ViparSpectra is sponsoring the prizes that will be awarded to the winners of this year’s Side Challenges, the Auto Supernova Challenge and the Party Cup Auto Challenge!
ViparSpectra is an industry leader in LED grow lights for home growers. They make some of the best fixtures available for smaller grow spaces. Their lights are also ideal for clones, seedlings, and mother plants as well, making the fixtures extremely versatile and a useful addition to any sized grow space! I have tested and reviewed several of their fixtures and have been impressed with the results!
ViparSpectra offers top-quality, high-efficiency fixtures at competitive prices. We are very excited to have several of these great ViparSpectra fixtures lined up as prizes during the Spring Auto Flower Challenge! To see more of what ViparSpectra's fixtures have to offer, check out my video review of the ViparSpectra XS1500 as well as my video review of the ViparSpectra P1500. Both of these fixtures will be given out as prizes during the SAFC!

End of Grow Award Winners
The SAFC is flowering! Many of us have already harvested our Spring Auto Flowers or are very close to doing so. On Sunday, July 25th, we all gathered in the chat room for the SAFC End of Grow Awards Live Watch Party. The winning numbers chosen during the California State Lottery Daily 3 Midday drawing that day were “044”. See the winners of each award and their prizes announced below!
Winner of Best Journal: GrowForShow
Congratulations, @GrowForShow, on winning the highly coveted Best Journal award! GrowForShow kept an excellent Challenge journal documenting their grow of Purple Pope. As the winner of Best Journal, GrowForShow got the first choice from our available prize pool. They chose to receive a trim tray with trimming accessories by Mogobe! This is a great trim tray that several CfC members are now using. If you’d like to purchase one for yourself, the trim trays can be found on Amazon. Don’t forget to use discount code: CocoTrim at checkout to receive 10% off your tray!
Winner of Best Growmie: Love-2-grow
Congratulations to @Love-2-grow, winner of our Best Growmie award! Love-2-grow did a great job of engaging with and encouraging fellow SAFC growers this Challenge. The winner of Best Growmie got the second choice from our prize pool. Love-2-grow chose to receive an Atreum Hyrda 1000 as their prize! This great little grow light features one of the coolest dimmers Dr. Coco has ever seen, making it an excellent light for seedlings, clones, and mothers. If you’d like to add an Atreum Hydra to your own grow, they can be purchased on Amazon. You can use Amazon discount code: CocoHydra5 to receive 5% off your fixture!
Winner of Best Recovery: Tropa
Congratulations, @Tropa, on winning the SAFC Best Recovery award! One of Tropa’s plants struggled and never developed leaves with more than three fingers, but Tropa never gave up hope! They had to harvest early but still came out with some great bud! Tropa won the remaining prize from our prize pool, an FTG Infinity Board! Unfortunately, Tropa is located outside of the available shipping range for this prize, so they will choose another grower to receive it in their place. If you’d like to purchase your own infinity board, head over FTG-Lighting.com, and use code: CCFC to receive 10% off your order!
Side Challenge Winners
Winner of the Auto Supernova Side Challenge: Syburgrows
Congratulations, @Syburgrows, on winning the Auto Supernova Side Challenge! Syburgrows grew an impressive auto flower that was overflowing with trichomes! They will receive a ViparSpectra XS1500 as their prize!

Congratulations to all of the winners, and a huge thank you to all of the growers who participated in our Spring Auto Flower Challenge this year! We had an awesome Challenge led by some great group leaders, gave out a ton of fabulous prizes, and grew some truly spectacular plants!
If you enjoyed participating in the SAFC, please consider signing up for our next grow challenge, the Plant Training Grow Challenge! The PTGC Forum is now live! You can begin your PTGC journal at any time! For the PTGC, there is no set start date. Rather, we all coordinate to flip from veg to flower on the same day. This year’s Flip Day will be October 10th! Make sure to plan accordingly and start your PTGC journals soon! We will be kicking off this year’s Challenge with a giveaway for a never-before-seen prize on September 1st! More details coming soon!

Congratulations to the Winner of June's Journal of the Month Competition!
Congratulations, @Beefcake, winner of June's Journal of the Month competition! Beefcake has kept a great SAFC grow journal documenting their grow of Pineapple Express and Strawberry Cheesecake. The name of these strains alone is enough to make your mouth water!
The prize that Beefcake will receive is a ViparSpectra P1000 grow light! This light is meant to provide full coverage to a 2' x 2' space. It is also a good choice for seedlings, clones, and mother plants.
Congratulations again to Beefcake on their win and to all of this month's nominees! Every nominee was very deserving of the nomination and recognition! We have had some great SAFC journals this year, and have enjoyed following along with everyone's grows as we are nearing harvest time and the end of the Challenge.

Congratulations to the Winner of May's Journal of the Month Competition!

The ViparSpectra XS series uses top of the line components with Samsung LM301b diodes and a Mean Well driver. The XS1000 provides the perfect coverage for a 2’ x 2’ area! It is also a great light for seedlings, clones, and mothers, making the XS1000 a useful addition to any grow space, even larger-sized ones!

Congratulations to the Winner of the Air-Pot Bros "May the Fourth be with You" Giveaway!
The results of our latest SAFC giveaway are in! Congratulations, @PakaloloTingz for winning the Air-Pot Bros "May the Fourth be with You" Giveaway!
Pakalolotingz will receive a pack of five #3 Air-Pots from Air-Pot Bros! Dr. Coco thinks that these are the best containers for growing in coco, especially if you are using an automatic watering system. The #3 pots are the perfect final containers for Autoflowers or Photo-period plants with less than a 6 week vegetation.
Want to purchase some Air-Pots for yourself? We recommend purchasing Air-Pots products through the Air-Pot Bros website because they are a certified, licensed distributor. We have a special deal with Air-Pot Bros! Use discount code: CCFC420 to receive free shipping on your order.
Congratulations to the Winner of the Mars-Hydro "New Space" Giveaway!
A big congratulations to @Roadhousegotbud our winner of the 4/20 Mars-Hydro sponsored "New Space" Giveaway!
@Roadhousegotbud won a Mars-Hydro grow kit! The grow kit features a 2' x 4' tent, exhaust fan, TSL 2000 fixture, and a few other handy things for setting up a grow! The TSL 2000 is a dimmable, full spectrum LED Grow Light with a simple design and minimal components. The Quantum Board style helps to distribute the light evenly across the coverage area and each region in the coverage area receives optimal photon densities as a result. The TSL 2000 is the ideal fixture for 4’ x 2’ coverage! To see more of what this light has to offer, check out Dr. Coco's Official Test Report of the TSL 2000.
