I am going to try autos, for the first time, in about 2 months. All strains I’ve chosen have an estimated 9weeks from seed harvest & a growth range between 80cm-140cm. I have seeds for 3 sativa dominants, 1 indica dominant, and 1 hybrid strain.
Can I scrog, if I start the screen almost immediately after germ? Anybody scrog their autos? I don’t want to do any high-stress training, or anything.
What are your thoughts on scrogging Autos ?
I dont see why you couldn’t as long as you start screen in the second or third weeks
Im not sure you’d get enough benefit from the technique with autos since the idea is to veg photo plant until screen is full
I see alot of people doing two or more plants under a screen but you get most from the technique using one plant and longer veg times to fill screen
I personally would opt for LST training instead
If you try it tag me when you start @blizzybetty
I’m considering this for my next grow as well and I think the reasoning is to manage height and light penetration, not necessarily fill the screen. In that case I think it sounds reasonable. And if you are super cropping or LSTing you might be able to get away without topping the plant at all if you wanted to.
That’s a good point. Hard to think you’ll actually fill a net worth having. But if you’re just using the net to keep plant opened up can’t see why it would bother anything. Although you could probably achieve same results by tying back branches a little. However one feels best for them should probably be ok.
