First SCroG grow, about to start tucking one of the girls back under the screen. I am a bit nervous about breaking the main stalk. Any suggestions?
any pics of the gro
Read all you can. When you are cutting branches take off all the ones that are vertical. Bend the main branch or the branch you are working on over in the direction you are going to take it and take off all the other branches that are up and down. I didn't do this and when I got near flowering I found I had branches in the way of other branches. It was somewhat of a mess. Next SCROG I'll be ruthless. I have four plants in four screens and just realized I don't have pix to post at the moment.. If you break a branch straighten it out and put tape on the break. It'll make a knuckle at the break but will heal unless broken nearly off. I have five that I broke. Four healed. By now you should be near your first week of flower and should have about sixty tops.
Tucking the plant makes it difficult to harvest,I use small wire ties,the I can Just cut the wire ties when finished.
