I am new to scrogging and I have 2 different strains under one screen (which I just learned is not a good thing). I went to 12 / 12 lighting yesterday / March 14. Was looking for advice on when And how much to prune during flowering stage. Plus any other advice is welcome
I’m out of likes, but looks good! I’d do whatever trimming you’re going to do now, if any, then keep tucking through the stretch. If you’re getting good light penetration and there are no leaves collecting moisture from laying together, I would leave them alone. After the stretch starts to slow, or once you have the screen filled, whichever comes first, be very careful if you need to tuck anything past that point, since the branches will begin to harden and they’ll be less pliable and easier to break.
Oh, and welcome to ILGM!
One other scrog thing…it’s much easier to work with the plants further in if you give each it’s own screen, if at all possible. Looks like you have access from all sides…is that area lightproof? Even just a pinhole could be enough to upset them.
Welcome to ILGM forum. Everything looks good. Healthy looking girls. Seems like you are either experienced or definitely did your homework before starting. I don’t scrog so I can’t really give advice on pruning. Good Luck seems like you’re on track for a beautiful harvest.
Welcome to the forum. They look great. lol
Looking good so far. I don’t Scrog and I really should.
SCROG is my preferred method of growing; especially if vertical height is challenged indoors.
Generally I recommend you keep plant in veg until 80% of screen is filled before flipping. One plant per screen. As you flipped yesterday you can easily resume veg schedule until screen is populated.
You want to be careful about topping at time of flower as you will lose bud sites doing so. There will be some serious defoliation after you have transitioned fully to flower.
Here’s a screen design I use that’s portable.
Here’s an example of a SCROG at harvest: this plant produced just over 14 oz of flower in 4 1/2 month grow
@Myfriendis410 Love that beast in outdoors. She was a fine looking gal.
I may have to jump onboard and get my Scrog net in place. Just to see what I can do with that style of grow.
I’m still not convinced it increases yield, but it helps to get a good yield out of a short plant. This is what I like about the SCROG.
I get those sized crops in weight. The real advantage of Scrog is you can get a ton of colas nice sized instead of what I get of a truckload of flowers all over with only 1 main cola.
Plus the Scrog allows the very colas better lighting vs where my bottom doesn’t and these are my popcorn sized test samples.
Plus it provides great support for heavy flower. It sometimes seems like I use my SCROG fixtures more as ‘spreaders’ than for traditional SCROG.
I forgot to mention that and you are correct…huge support on the Scrog.
Thanks you so much for the advice. And yes I will have each plant under independent screens for the next grow. I do have access to three sides and I get below the screen to trim it up. Windows are completely covered, zero light. Thanks again
Thanks, I’ve been growing on and off since 04 but never had pH meter or tds meter until now. Its nice to have this forum to get things dialed in and learn new things.
@McNuggin Welcome to the forum.
My preferred method of scrogging is to let plant grow through net approximately 8", then supercrop and tie to top of net. Continue tying down as they grow. When net is approximately 60% full, flip lights. Continue tying down until flowers appear. I have grown a 2lb plant this way.
Compliments to @TDubWilly
Looking really good youve done way better then my own attempt at it
Wow looks great! Tbh follow your instincts it seems to me that you have it all under control my friend.
