I’m a little late here, but I think you’re doing great!
The long veg times is what turned me off from doing scrogs. But I’ve been reading a lot about different methods lately since I had to shut my grow down, and I’m wondering if bending the main branch over and getting the lowers to come up wouldn’t be faster than multiple toppings?
I also didn’t run my net as high as most seem to recommend. It made tucking a little more difficult than it probably should’ve been, but I believe I was into the net fairly quickly compared to most. Like I said, I tried once and bailed for faster growing methods. So these are theories on my end, definitely not something I can suggest will work. But perhaps some of the other guys following along can weigh in on?
