that's what I did. Cool. Mine still doesn't look to clean though. but all good.
Ok so these plants are autos and this is what they look like today. I have read many times that you cannot SCROG autos but it looks like it worked out ok so far!
Getting closer, but still getting there.
Here is an update on my SCROG Day 43:
Now that's a scrog!
How mush a run are u guys pulling in a 8x4 tent with scrogs? And how long of a veg time im debating on going back to this method but dont know if its worth it
Purple cactus filling out the net
Lots of tips
I have only done one test mini scrog in by 8x4, but I made a 3square foot net (1.5ft x 2ft) Just for the laugh, I got 9oz dry. Scale that up 32 square foot/3 .=10.6r x 9 = 95oz.. LOL wouldn't that be awesome..... would be based an 10 plants with 4 weeks veg from a nice size clone..
Obviously veg time would depend on plant count, I think filling one half with one plant would take a while, depends on medium used and light intensity during veg. Also in theory the more you pide a plant the smaller the buds are overall. 4 plants in a 4x4 net should yield bigger buds and thus higher weight than 1 plant vegged longer to fill the same 4x4 screen.
So you want to choose what plant count you are comfortable with or legal for and work from there.
Oh and did you top them?
And you stop tucking when the stretch stops
Maybe on occasion in flower to keep the buds spaced out.
I love this reasoning, simple common sense in motion.
It's the kind of post I can just sit with and breathe into for a while, savoring its elegant beauty.
Thanks for that!
I took a couple of the taller colas off to help ripen and fatten the others.
Yes, I topped them at 4th node about day 16 of first true leaves. Humboldt Seed Org. Blue Dream Auto, Dutch Passion Auto Night Queen and Zambesa Blueberry Auto.
Uhm may have stopped tucking a little after stretch stopped. The Autos don't give you time to fill the net but I believe I got a lot more major colas than if I had just topped and left them alone. Here is a recent picture:
Oh awesome, and they're beautifully spread out. It does take an appropriate strain that will really grow out its secondaries like that, seems there are more out there nowadays that will.
I immediately thought of the leggier Mephisto strains, pretty sure they'd scrog nicely too
Cheers and congrats!
Thanks, after the harvest and cure I will sum up my thoughts about this SCROG of autos.
Howdy all. Thought I'd share my scrog. 6weeks veg, 3 weeks of 12/12. 1000w in 4x4 tent.
There's a screen in there somewhere I swear.
Can you just clarify please....is this above or below the 4th node? I'm never quite sure when people say this exactly what they mean....I will be topping my plants in a couple of weeks so it would help to clear this up for me!
Thanks a lot!
Love the colas all sticking up....looks great!
I like to have about 6 main branches so I will top after the 3rd set of nodes, I then top the top two branch one more time after they grow out some down to the first two sets of nodes. You can see it here in this Purple Cactus.
Remember we are talking about Auto Flowering plants here. The first set of true leaves is the first node. Moving up each subsequent set of true leaves forms the next node. Count 4 sets of true leaves up and you are at the fourth node. Cut the central stem above the two branches that will form there. This will give you 8 main branches on the plant. This is going to need to be done from about day 14 to 20 at the latest otherwise the plant will not have enough vegetative time to recover before automatically entering the generative stage.
For photoperiod plants I like to do a manifold with two main stems and 6 side stems on each side 12 total. This usually takes 21 to 30 days. You can manifold as many side branches as you like because you determine when the plant is flipped into flower.
@randydj @907guy thanks a lot for the info. Much appreciated!
I'm planning to do a ScrOG in my 4x2 space with 3 photo plants. I don't want to have too many stems or have small colas by topping too much. As you can tell I'm very much a beginner at ScrOG.......
