Hello, I am doing a scrog but I don't have a height issue, I have a width. So I wanted to try a grow with all colas and all even with lighting.

I read a lot on Scrog and I know to tuck that makes more shoots. And supposed to tuck first 1-2 weeks of flower. But I was thinking of going for 2 foot colas on all.

How long are your colas?

Also if you have any good reading on it I would like that.


Thanks.

you can tie them over to control the height
many strains/phenos will not grow 2ft colas, this is mainly genetics how long and big they will get (ruling out grower incompetence)
if you want to control the position of the colas as much as possible then a SOG grow would be better than a screen anyway

Oh so we can just choose how long our buds are gonna be?..

Man have I been missing out.
That's why I am asking.

Solid 8", ideally i'd run 8-10" above the net. You'd have to have the experience to know when to stop tucking to acheive that 8"-10" though so it'll be a learning process. Good luck!

I call this the gorilla scrog. A personal favorite btw. If head space isnt a issue I would flip 8-12inches. Huge colas are gonna be based on genetics, how big the plant is. (Ie. 4months from seed, screen 16x24, 10gallon pot). 2x 600 hps, nutes...all factors.
If see see the pic to the left .....gorilla scrog. I tuck everything and get it as close to possible as all the same height and flower 8-12".
