    Seems like 3 plants in 5 gallon dwc buckets in the size you're stating won't take long to veg. couple of weeks max. Your stretch after flip is going to double their size...You will have a tent full. Id'e still start with 18" clearance and work it down to a foot as you go..

    thats what i will do then! my 4 week old is only 4 inches right now.. but im guessing veg is only 6-8 weeks... so i gotta top now for the 2 week gap before flip right? also with 3 plants in that size tent, i shouldn't top them much i would imagine right?

    When I scrog I use every element of training. I fim, top, super crop and LST, I get aggressive. The plant is not going to die from any training. I super cropped the base of the main stem one time to see what would happen and that plant lived, stressed to all hell I'm sure but it didn't hermie on me.
    Point is I would develop a "feel" for what the plant wants to do and not limit yourself by setting up a guideline in advance of how you are going to grow and scrog.
    To tell your self I'm only going to top twice or only LST I believe will do nothing but hold you back.

    You grow them tall. Do you use those tomato cages to train? I seen the Mendo Boys super crop and LST all their side branches using cages to really make them bush out

    . Hey Tbud,

    That’s the same tent I have for veg. What type and size LEDs are you running? How many? What’s the veg time on a big girl like this? Very nice

    Unfortunately I had to veg this one longer than my newer plant. The new plant with the water chiller is growing out of control. The one you're looking at here had a veg time of 6 weeks but I'm going to have one that is bigger than this one and only four weeks veg hopefully lol.

    I just have 400 real watts of cheap viparspectra above this plant. About run-of-the-mill as you can go on lights.

    Two 450s, I'm going to pull those two out before two long as replace with a mars 720 and then those two 450s will go with another 450 on my light mover
