    Hey guys I would like to ask you about defoliating SCROG this plant is 7 weeks in veg wanna put her to flower any day now just im a bit scared of mold a bit later because she is VERY bushy as you can see, so should I completely cut everything that is under the net, then let her regenerate 1-2 days and switch to flower ? I did a bit defoliation even now but only fan leaves.

    Look into LST training. Too late to do a true SCROG.

    Keep pushing the tops down under your net, this allows the lower growth to catch up & fills your canopy.
    I scrog & trim everything that does not make it to the canopy + I run a box fan 24/7 under there too - never had a mold problem like that.

    G/L & welcome to RIU.

    Please explain why, without simply linking to another site. Looks like a scrog to me. Screen? Check. Plant? Check. Plant growing into screen? Check. What else is there really?

    Yes trim up the shit under the screen and i mean everything, maybe lower the screen or raise the plant up whatever is easier. Your going to have to tie branches down till week 2 or 3 flower. Honestly the plant looks a little too big for your area, but we will see wont we.

    Well.. the screen in a true SCROG is installed at a height of about 8 inches above the plant. That's the first issue. Maybe you should click on that link. Has pictures and everything!

    OP never said what the screen distance is.. and he even asked if he should lower it. Now you say the only thing wrong is that it should be 8 inches over the dirt.
    Thats retarded to say thats the only thong thats a scrog. A scrog is a screen of green. Theres a screen and a plant growing into it.

    Please explain how what he did is not a scrog, without relying on that one link. I could link to anything claiming anything, and some corner of the internet would say whatever.

    So why dont you try to give some real advice

    Yea thats a plant thats held together by pvc, amd a screen worthlessly dangling.. no shit thats not a scrog and also not what the op is doing.




    @FerretHD go ahead an flower it now its already pretty big, it doesnt need time to recover youll be pruning it till week 4 anyways. By week 4 you shouldnt have any weak buds left, just prun ruthlessly

    DOn't be shy to break it a bit, give it a squeeze so one side of the stem collapses a bit, it will lift itself up in a few hours sometimes, and grow a fat juicy knuckle.

    Thats a scrog yes... but the op also has a scrog. Thats just a plant thats been trained a shitton an is likely pretty old. It doesnt HAVE to look like that going into flower, amd that plant is already IN FLOWER.
