So Im just getting the end of my veg cycle and I am attempting my first scrog. My grow room is 4x4x7 and I made my own frame the same dimensions of my room (4x4) and tied string to nails I put in every 6 inches.
Im growing in soil, in 7 Gal smartpots, and have set the screen to be 19-20 inches from the tops of the pots. Of the six plants Ive got in there, 2 are poking about 3 inches above the screen from their main stalk, other branches are about 7 inches away. My other hybrid is about 2 inches from poking through the screen from its main stalk.
My indicas are just really bushing out and are just over a foot tall, not really close to the screen at all. I have been vegging for 7 weeks, but honestly probablly put myself back 2 weeks from waiting to transplant and not feeding well enough. Those problmes are fixed and these plants are growing fast.
My question(s) is, do you experienced scroggers think its still to early to flip my lights? Im a little worried Ill switch to flower and the plants wont completely fill out my screen. I really wish I took a pic this morning so you could see what I was talking about but hopefully you have a pretty good Idea from the explanation.
Do you think I might have set my screen to high above the plants at 20"? Im flowering with a 1000w hps. How high would you suggest I keep my light above my screen? From what I have read I have gathered between 18-24 inches will be good. Thoughts?
