How many of what are under the net?
Building a new scrog slowly. Got to finish up a new paint job first. Two plants in a 1.5 x 3ft space. Wide U SCRoG style.
Little upclose and personal lol.
8 under each scrogg 4x8 one of the smaller tops
This scrog is already in flower but
I'm wondering if I filled a screen while it was still in veg. When the screen is full top everything and then switch to flower. It seams like the topping would slow the stretch for the better part of a week. If I had any run away I could just top them again.
The result should be a screen with even more bud than usual.
Anyone tried it?
I get the whole stretch dilemma but I think it's not an issue with topping.
By the way, the outside perimeter of my screen is empty because i dont have light to support it.
I have 2 1000w. I want to switch to 4 600 so I can cover a little more area
Nice grow, don’t down grade to the 4x600. Make the switch to led and go with either the g8-900 or my new fav-next light mega I use both the replace the 1000de. And my opinion there far better. Quality, footprint and yield!!! Swear by them. I’m finishing up that last room with the hps!! My other rooms are running all leds. Going to keep the hps for veg only!!! Makes a world of difference between the crops.
I'll have to look into led again. It was just getting off the ground when I set up the room.
The NugBox is technically in working order right now. I've really just got to get the cables tidied up. And program the power box again.
Just finished this screen...2.75’ x 2.75’ for my 3x3 tent. Just waiting for her to reach the screen at this point.
Don`t know if its been talked about yet so Ill mention it anyway
my old scrog I built to stand on its own like a table.
It was a pain in the ass as far as taking floor space so this time I used light
hangers to suspend a basic pvc rectangle from the ceiling.
Also this time I bought one of those cheap trellis nets instead of stringing it. I just taped it in place took about 10 minutes
I was worried the holes were too big but it worked fine.
At 10 bucks a screen Ill simply cut this one out of the frame at harvest and add a new one next round.
I happen to have Steele rebar leftover from another project so that`s how I made my frame heavy enough that the plants
wont keep raising it. I simply put rebar inside the pvc frame.
That is all...
Mines all harvested. Got a tad over a pound. Not bad for a first scrog. Net was 3.5 x 4 approx.
Quick question. I'm only running 3 buckets in a 1.6 x 3ft area. My net pushes that to roughly 4ft wide. Should I have the outer two buckets slightly raised?
Also im looking at doing something with the net. Maybe raising it. Or flexing it differently.
I wouldn't raise them. That's the only gap for gardening. You sure you need the centre pot? Maybe look at having just the two outside pots and bringing them in slightly?
Those COBs are too close. You are going to burn everything above 6 inches in the center.
It won't look like burn from HID but rather nutrient deficiency, curling leaves, necrosis, etc.
LEDs can make plants pretty sick if you mess up.
I definitely can take one bucket out. I'm still working out what and how of things. I mean I've got the general idea down. Just need to finalize the plan.
I can still raise that light further. That's just the height I had them when I took the shot.
Back them up all the way. Can you see those two white spot on the wall? That is the death zone.
Also, I'd go with smaller pots, You don't need anything that big for the canopy you are growing.
Easiest ways to fuck up is too much light, too much food, too much water.
Gah. Okay. I'll look at getting some wider buckets then.
Still learning by the way.
I'd use smaller plants in higher numbers (also cuts time off veg)
For that small box with limited height, I'd get rid of the net and fill that fucker with 6" pots with clones vegged for 3 days to a week before flipping Keeps them away from the light and heat too.
Set up a garden dripper with a pump to water them as needed.
You won't need to train anything, you can run on a fraction of the food and light at the start. Pretty much just divide how much light you have into about 10, this is how much more they need every week starting with a tenth in week 1.
They finished really welll was his scrogg 4x8, (my last room with the hps( each screen harvested 4.2 lbs dry) and now!!!!!!!!! Smoke time peps!!
