View Full Version : out comes the DIY fingers.... need some advice
hi guys i got 2 plants vegging a week and half old and starting to make some modular screens for the scrog as i wont be around next 2-3 weeks and gotta get them made.... i gonna move them from 3lt air pots to 15lt air pots and what i wanna know is how big should i make the screens ? i have them in a 0.8x0.8x1.2m tent so i was thinking maybe around 0.3x0.3m screens or it that too big? i i would like that tiny bit of space between them to make life abit easier
also while on the topic... i plan to top the plants before fitting into screens so i was thinking of topping when plant is around 6" and maybe 12" and fit the screens roughly 12" high from plant pot
am i on right tracks?
any scrog pro heads want to share some knowledge :D
im not a scrog pro lol but im in a 90x90x160 and made my screen yesterday i made it 85x85 theres pics in my diary :stoned-smilie:

I'm very new to this forum but have about 5 great SCRoG grows under my belt. I keep my screen height at about 8" over the pot edge, but most folks like 12" as it is easier to get under the screen to trim and to water/feed your plants. The lower screen height allows the screen to fill quicker, so it's a trade off.
As far as screen size goes, it depends on what you want to do really and what you have to work with. The biggest factors are your light and it's optimum spread and your available room in your grow space. If space is not a limit, find the optimum light spread for your light and build your screen to match that.
Topping/training is still an unexplored area for me. I've heard good arguments for topping and for training without topping. My first instinct is to go with what is easy (topping is easy, training plants while potting up is a bit of a hassle). My next grow (I'm finishing one up now) I'll document here as my first diary here, will have a side by side comparison of training vs topping in order to see which has a better yield.
