how to get BIG SCROG buds?
if height is not much a concern since my screen is a foot from the buckets (its a DWC setup btw) and can still grow about 2.5 ft until they'd get bleached from the lights (1kW)....
would it be a good idea to veg 100% of the screens and then let the stretch rise them up?
or would that be a bad idea? lol..
this is my first SCROG and idk what to expect from the stretch phase
im growing SLH, Liberty Haze, Blue widow and critical +.... i've read that SLH and Critical + are pretty huge plants and were recommended to scrog..
and i have the space to grow bigger plants but i want to get the maximum yield i can and i think 1000 AC cooled watts at 9" away from canopy would be able to easily penetrate about 2 ft. (no worries on bleaching or burning i've done my hw)
i can obviously adjust the lights if this wasn't the best way to do it
Im not a scrogger but have read many post and a grow book on doing it successfully. If you veg until the net is 75% full then switch the light, you will still be pulling branches through the screen as the first 2 weeks of flower provide your big stretch. This is also the time to position the branches how you want them. You also want to trim the growth under the screen as it does not recieve proper lighting and the extra energy not going to the undergrowth will be equally distributed amongst your top buds. You may get some different opinions but I am just quoting what Ive researched. The grow book is called " Secrets of the west coast masters". It is a scrogging and training system designed to give you 2lbs off 1 plant under a thousand watt bulb. it is pretty impressive to see this accomplished!
hahahaha awesome profile picture dude!
