So what’s the difference? From what I can tell, SCROG is just a lazy form of LST that offers ability to manipulate canopy height without needing something to tie to.
We had been LSTing our girls and after I broke a couple limbs accidentally I decided that maybe SCROG would be less stressful for both us and the girls. But hindsight is 20/20 and I feel we opened canopy up and exposed lower bud sites just fine with LST alone.
Am I missing something? I guess scrog would offer stability after stretch/budding, but couldn’t you LST down low and then scrog up high? Is it really just plant/strain dependant which method you choose?
