SCROG is a low-cost method of controlling plant growth indoors. Unlike the Sea of Green (SOG) technique, which simply involves growing plenty of short plants over a large floor plan without trellising, SCROG employs the use of metal or plastic screens or grids that plants grow up through and use to sprawl outwards.

What is Sea of Green growing method?
The sea of green (SOG) method is a technique used to maximize yield in a limited grow space. It is done by growing many small plants in a compact area rather than focusing on a few larger plants
When can I Flower after Scrog?
As a general rule for growing a ‘typical’ hybrid with an average amount of stretch, many SCROG growers wait until the screen is around 75% full with branches and shoots before flipping to 12/12 bloom conditions
Can you ScrOG tomatoes?
Vegetable plants like tomatoes and peppers definitely benefit from the ScrOG method, but higher dollar value plants is where the real bonanza lies. Home growers appreciate the increased yield in precious small spaces.
Where should I place ScrOG net?
We recommended positioning the screen around 20cm above the base of your plants, so their rate of growth will determine when exactly you start to ScrOG. Start the ?tucking? process as the apex of each plant begins to grow through the screen. Wait for each tip to grow 5cm above the screen.
How tall should you be before switching to flower?
You should measure from the base of your plant to around 12 inches below your lights. When your vegging plants reach about one third of this height, you can flip into flower.
Is Scrog or SOG better?
SOG and SCROG are advanced, but easy and straightforward, grow techniques designed to improve cannabis yields. Neither technique is necessarily superior to the other. The SOG method suits some growers and their cultivation style better than SCROG, and vice versa.
Do you top plants in SOG?
When growing plants using SOG you will get bud sites quickly since you don’t need to ?top? the plants. The faster the buds form means more harvests you can fit in a year.
Do you trim fan leaves during veg?
Regular Fan Leaf Pruning
Sometimes, a little pruning is just the thing you need for success. Similar to defoliation, pruning leaves will be most often required during your plant’s vegetative stage, but it should be something you keep an eye on throughout its entire development.
Does longer veg mean more yield?
The longer you keep your plants in the vegetative stage, the bigger your plant will be, resulting in bigger yields from plants that were vegetated longer.
Does Lollipopping increase yield?
Does lollipopping increase yield? Many growers have increased yields by lollipopping. We know enough about plant science to support the logic behind this type of pruning. What’s even cooler is that you can combine lollipopping with topping or fimming.
Is it OK to remove large fan leaves during veg?
You can remove fan leaves during flowering in much the same way you do during veg. Prune away large leaves that are overshadowing bud sites, as well as dead or dying fan leaves. One thing to keep in mind is that you should prune in intervals, giving at least a couple weeks between each session.
Is it OK to remove fan leaves during flowering?
Yes, you should remove fan leaves during the flowering stage using the correct technique. Removing fan leaves will open up light and produce a better air exchange to the lower canopy. It will also ensure that more energy can go to your plant’s valuable parts and make for a bigger harvest.
Will buds grow without fan leaves?
Remember that fan leaves removed during flowering won’t grow back, and removing too many can throw off the plant’s energy balance, stunting bud development in turn.
How do I make my buds sweeter?
Many sugar or carbohydrate-based supplements claim to improve the smell/taste/sweetness of buds. A cheap alternative to expensive sugar-based bloom boosting supplements is blackstrap molasses. Giving this to your plants for the last few weeks before harvest can help them get bigger and smell/taste better.
What is Schwazzing?
Schwazzing is a term used to describe an intense form of defoliation. The process involves removing many fan leaves from a plant, allowing much more light to pass through to bud sites.
How do you get big colas?
Topping to increase the number of colas
Topping is a form of pruning and involves pruning off the branch tip of the main cola. When you top the main cola, the energy goes to the side branches. The next two lateral branches will become the main branches. Topping will increase the overall yield of your grow.
Does molasses make buds bigger?
Molasses adds sugars to the plant and will help it to bud. Like us, plants need salts, nutrients, and sugars daily. Feeding your plants molasses, what could be considered the equivalent to our eating junk food sugars, will pack on the weight to your marijuana buds.
