Been a while but I’m back! I have 5 / AK - 47 going this time. I’m 6 weeks into 5 gal. buckets. Plants are 13" - 15" tall. Question is: when should I put the SCROG net on if not already??? I’ve pruned somewhat to produce as many bud sites as possible! They look fantastic! Gonna let’em veg. till the end of the year and go from there! Also, using a 400 watt HPS in a 39" x 39" x 70" tent
I just completed a two plant scrog in same sized tent. I would say net them anytime soon. Sounds like you’re on your way!! Got any photos you can share, I love scrogs. I am in my second grow currently. Three auto flower strains in same sized tent you have.
Watch all the youtube videos you can tolerate, read all you can read. That’s what I did.
There is a certain amount of “feel” and “anticipation” as far as where your main and side branches are, and where you want them to be or to end up
As you put the net on there will be tops of branches that appear to naturally want to poke through screen/net openings.
Your job will be to guide those tops further out away from the main trunk, circling or mildly bending and guiding the top to stay under the screen.
The purpose, or part of the purpose, is to get the side shoots on the branches to grow upward (and become their own branches) and you then guide them to stretch and eventually fill their own hole or niche on your net.
Let each top grow up through an opening for 2-3 inches then pull it back down under the screen and guide it outward or toward a new screen opening at it’s apex of length of the branch itself.
Hope this helps or is even making sense.
Here is a pic of the Girl’s!!! They are 6 wks in the buckets now. This is just my 2nd grow.By the time I get the net on’em (this week) and veg’em another 4 wks they should be close to flower by then. If not I will let’em go till ready. Enjoy the pic all!!
All 5 plants are supposed to be AK - 47 but as you can see the middle plant is definitely different! It was 7 days behind the other 4 but something is going on for sure compared to the other 4 !!! Look at the size of those leaves! There as big as my hand!!! All 5 seeds came from ILGM !
OK! This scrog grow has me confused. I have now read when you put the screen on you should let ur plants grow through the screen and then pull the tops under the screen and position in a different hole! I have also read where you let the plants grow through the screen and then tie the tops back on top of the screen. Which is the correct way to Scrog???
The way I and the SCROG Master @Countryboyjvd1971 do it is by tucking the stems under the screen. If you’re going to tie it down, you don’t need the SCROG Screen. @Gilly (But some folks do tie them down like that and that works too! )
It does work great, but you need to top and or FIM to get multiple tops going. You also need to let it veg long enough to fill the screen to about 75%
I’ve already got 15 -25 tops per plant going on 4 and the 5th is catching up quick as it was 7 days behind the other 4 plants. They are 10 weeks old from soaking seeds! Gonna go another 3 weeks in veg. at least. Should get the net on this week if it gets here.
Here is 4 of the 5 plants I have going in buckets! The 5th 1 looks the same just a week behind, that’s all! I hope by years end it will be time to throw the switch to 12/12!!! Net should be here this week so I’m gonna net’em as soon as it gets here and start Scrogging ASAP! I counted 25-30 tops on each plant so if everything goes right I should end up with a sea of green and a shitload of smoke! (I HOPE)!!! Enjoy the pics! I’ll keep’em coming as they progress ! The bottom pic is the plant that is a week behind the other 4 and it shows it. I still think I got a seed that was different from the rest. Fan leaves are ginormus and as u can see, it clearly is a different color of green! The leaves also don’t have the “shine” that the other 4 have!?
