Hello all - I am about to start germinating seeds for my second grow (I am a couple of weeks away from harvesting my first ever grow).
Here is my complete set up:
Lights: A pair of 1500W (260W actual) KingPlus LED lamps
Room: 4’x4’x80" Tent
Ventilation: 6" duct fan connect to carbon filter for exfil at the top of the tent; 6" duct fan for intake at bottom of tent; one 6" clip on fan and one 8" fan for circulation in the tent
Grow Medium: Deep Water Culture Hydro with 3.5 gallon Bubble Boy Pots with clay pellets in the net pots
My first grow I grew six ILGM Crystal plants in a “sea of green” kind of attempt. I randomly topped/fimmed the plants and have a lot of stuff growing every direction in my tent. This grow, I want to try and be better organized and try out some other growing methods, so I am considering a scrog. I’m just not sure how many plants I should grow. I’m thinking in a 4x4 scrog I could probably grow one SSH and one GL and fill it up depending on veg time. But if I’d like a shorter grow, would it be okay to do 2 of each plant type with shorter veg time? I am thinking once I have viable seedlings, going until 4-5 nodes, topping, going until the new tops have enough growth to top again, and then switching to flower a week later. I guess I can play it by ear on how long to veg to fill the screen… ?
My first grow I didn’t lollipop or do anything out of the ordinary, really (I did thin out one plant a little in early flower to experiment and see what would happen). This time I am going to top and lollipop them and try to get a good canopy with better air flow and efficiency than what I have going on right now.
If you were attempting scrog the first time in a 4x4 tent how many plants (Gold Leaf and/or SSH) would you grow?
I will be updating this thread regularly of course once I have more to post, but for now I am in the planning stages.
