How to Scrog with Grower Scrog nets in a Grow Tent.
How to scrog
You want to start early in Veg to start shaping your plants and get as many tops as possible so as soon as you can start topping your plant and lollipopping, thinning the underside. When you're ready to put into your scrog. Pull down your lower net so it's firmly on top of your plant canopy pulling out branches and bending branches as needed.
The idea here is to take all those side branching and turn them into vertical main branches themselves within the lower screen. You want to try to fill all the areas of your screen with some pretty good size vertical branches. When do you have your screen nearly full...
now is the time to maybe switch it into flowering. As the flowers grow you can use your upper larger mesh netting as support.. The whole idea of scrogging is designed so that you take advantage of that 12 to 18 in that you get of good light penetration for indoor growing. Think of it as growing a Flatbush rather than growing a Christmas tree. Substantially better yields and lower plant counts.
My name is Christian and I’m a Grower.
As a grower I must overcome many obstacles regarding equipment, plants, pests.. Just about everything. One of the problems I had was using nylon trellis nets to do a SCROG style of growing also known as (screen of green). The problem I had with this is that I would buy a package of 4” mesh nylon netting AND a package of 6” mesh netting. I would then cut them into a proper size to fit my grow tent and attach to tent poles using zip ties. I would use the 4” mesh as a lower net to train my plants to control an even canopy. As they flowered the 6” mesh would support the cannabis buds. After harvest I would need to cut out netting and zip ties and start all over again.. with new nets and zip ties for next cycle
Then if we successfully make it to harvest and want to share with our friends we break out some sandwich or ziplock bags and free the weed! The problem here is the odor.. Everything you touch and own smells like weed!
My solutions to these problems
For the scrog nets. I designed a flexible net system using the same 4” and 6” mesh. I fixed the zip tie problem by making these attach to tent poles with hooks, so now you can easily hook and unhook, as well as slide up and down on the tent poles. The nets themselves are flexible to fit many different size tents and not cut into plants as some plastic or nylon nets tend to. You can easily remove from poles with hooks to access plants for harvest. And reusable so it's the last net you need to buy.
For the Bags.. I searched far and wide, and after many failed attempts I found a good manufacturer of thick mylar ziplock bags that have a clear front to show off your buds.. But smell proof so you don't smell like weed while out and about.
As cannabis becomes more mainstream, and possibly federally legal. It's going to create something similar to the craft beer movement. Where legal dispensaries will have the big box kind of weed that's easy to grow and doesn't need specialized attention. But for a really good high quality craft cannabis. The home grower Market will take over.
My friends say that "snitches get stitches"...
