White Widow - SCROG stretch?


#1

I’ve got a white widow, vegging from seed.

It’s very low and wide and growing really well. I’ve topped a couple of times and tied down branches.

I’m wondering when to go to 12/12.

Does any one have a feel for the amount of stretch (horizontally for the first two weeks of flower while I continue to tuck) and then vertically when I stop tucking?

I’m in no hurry to flip and I want to maximise my use of space (single plant, 1mx1m tent).

A, B or C?


#2

If you wait until it looks like “c” you’ll have your tent full. I’m on my first scrog right now and am kinda curious myself when to flip


#3

To fill that whole square, you want to wait till C, or 70%.

A lot of things make a difference. Size of lights, soil or hydro, etc.
I’m in hydro, 20gal, with 1000w lights. I Scrog and tie down until net is approximately 60%, or a little better, then flip lights.


#5

I keep tucking for about a week after the flip, (5-7) days. If you keep tucking after that you’ll get a lot of buds developing at/below the string line. I usually end up with the colas finishing approx 6-12" above the net.

Thanks mate. I’m in 15gal, Coco and MARS II 900 LEDs.

I tie mine down as opposed to tucking, and at about 7 weeks, I untie them and let them stand up a little.
