Doing my first SoG in Solo cups
    #745306 - 08/26/14 04:40 PM (2 years, 3 months ago)

Ive grown a few plants in Solo cups but this will be my first attempt at a larger scale grow with them.

I have 18 clones rooted and planted in green 16oz Solo cups using coco coir/perlite as my growing medium. The strain is an Indica dominant, Afghan Kush x Yumboldt. Its going to be a lot of work since Im using coco, Im going to have to feed/water just about every day.

Anyone have any experience with this type of grow and if so any tips or suggestions? Do I need to cover the cups with anything so light wont go through to the roots? About how tall should I let them get before switching to flower?

Oh, I kind of know a little about it.

Soil version


Hydro in lava rocks


I've never done them in coir though. I can't stress enough just how much I hate coco coir. I have no good reason for this cause the few grows I've done with it turned out well. :shrug:

When you cut the lights back depends on strain. Strains that stretch you need to flower right away indicas you need to give time or do a bunch of these.

Should be cool man... you shouldn't have a light to roots issue...
The only thing you will have is constant need for watering...but... with the constant fluctuations of wet/dry, your plants will be getting some major work done...

Cheers

It is a lot more work for sure, but Im having better results with it than I did FFOF. Plants have been growing faster and Ive been getting bigger yields, not to mention it took switching to coco to finally completely eradicate my fungus gnat problem.

I sure do miss not having to babysit my plants though. Its even more work for me than most because I hand feed/water...I just dont have the room for an irrigation system.

Putting boiling water in your soil prior to use will kill all the fungus gnat eggs but you do lose some benifical fungai doing this.

Ive tried this before probably from your recommendation in another post because Im pretty sure I read it here but it didnt work. I dont know if they're coming in from outside or what but they dont seem to care for the coco at all.

Good shit. I've never done that, and am still learning, but I'd say go by the node growth and just put them into 12/12 when they have a few axillary/lateral buds.

BTW I just found that a certain less mainstream site has pint, quart and 2 quart root pouch fabric planters from 30-45 cents each or $12-$17 for 50 and 8$ shipping on most orders. I'm sure it doesn't matter too much, especially for SOG, but a lot of people heavily praise the benefits of fabric planters, and I'm curious if they'd work out better than cups for this kind of SOG grow.

Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

One gallon bags are perfect for SOG. You can fit 4 per sq ft.

Love fabric pots, those 2 bigger plants in the middle of my pic are in fabric. I just dont have the room for them for a SoG grow...Im growing in a 5ft x 10ft walk-in closet that's divided in half for veg/flower, its cramped to say the least. If they made fabric pots the size of solo cups I'd be all over that.

Yea I think I'd go with the gallons if I ever did SOG. Though I might get some of these tiny fabric pots for germination. Pretty cheap at 40-50 cents each after shipping when you get a 50 pack of 1pint - 2 quart. greenhouse megastores ftw...

anyway goodluck on getting some good buds!

Just wanted to share progress, put these into flower a couple days ago...they're doing great so far, looking forward to some huge colas. Love this strain.
