On my bucket list is to build a scrog frame w/trellis and learn to use this method for max cola development. I love to LST and have been doing that on multiple plants with great success. I have also had great results with topping and FIMMing plus super cropping. Yeah I screwed that one up but some tape saved the day and all is fine now.
Potentially, I’ll build the SCROG frame for my small 2x2 tent which gives me close to 5’ of clearance after the fan, filter and light are hung. The reason I consider SCROG is to balance the canopy since I don’t have a super tall grow space and photo plants like Blue Dream and Maui Wowie are too tall to grow naturally.
My question is - Do I really need to SCROG if I am able to LST with topping and FIMMing? In a tight 2x2 grow space, I’ll have trouble managing the back side of the plant on a SCROG frame since I wont be able to spin her around. I also like to take my plants out of the tent to the porch and work on lollypop trimming and other defoliation techniques. With this being the case, it seems that a SCROG frame may be more of a hinderance than a help.
Has anyone else felt this way…and what did you do to resolve the limitations SCROG prevents…other than NOT SCROG of course!!
