Screen of green gets the best buds just with a simple caring
Hardly any marijuana consumer can allow themselves spend a lot of resources and time in plant cultivating. That is why there are many different ways of cultivating, both indoors and outdoors, that make the process easier. Today’s method is screen of green (SCROG), perfect for small places and busy people with a little time to take care of their plants.
The name comes from the screen itself that is used to make the plants grow up. This has to be preferably bamboo, 6 or 8 centimeters in diameter, with holes of 5 to 10 centimeters and 20 above the plant pots.
This kind of growth has a lot of advantages, like saving cuttings and seeds because it is only necessary planting 1 to 5 plants, comparing to sea of green, for example. In the first case, it is needed a 25 liters plant pot and the process will take 5 to 7 weeks. With 3, 4 and 5 plants it will be enough with 12 liters plant pots, just needing 3 to 5 weeks to fill the screen in. Besides, SCROG requires little caring. After tying and tangling it is watering the only thing to do.
Once the plants have already grown and they are tangled, we will wait until they occupy the 70 per cent of the screen. Next, we will change the photoperiod from growing to flowering, where the plant will colonize the whole screen. The buds will be at the same height and they will have the highest quality.
We show you different methods of cultivating to small, medium and big places
Marijuana cultivating has a lot of varieties. Other times we wrote about sea of green (SOG) to get the best of our space whereas screen of green (SCROG) is the best way to take advantage of our resources. Today we deepen in this technique and all its different kinds that it offers depending on the area we have:
– Small places:
SCROG with net: This method is perfect to small closets and allows cultivating many plants in a square meter. It is only necessary having low consumption lights to enjoy this profitable procedure.
Cylindrical and horizontal: this one is a variety of vertical and spherical mother net. This ones let you get the best from the corners we do not know what to do with. It is suitable to little plants or nurseries from what we expect a fast growth.
Green single-screen: it is adaptable to a single plant so as to increase its buds production. Branches expand greatly and it produces a higher rentability. The only drawback is that it requires a very small place for its cultivation.
– Medium places:
SCROG ring: very beautiful and also well ventilated, preventing mold. Light comes to every branch and that generates a very favorable environment. Its principal inconvenience is it needs a lot of nutrients.
Hydroponic: it focus the energy of the plant on branch ends after cutting lower and lateral ones. Thus, light will arrive at every single sprout.
Cannabis wall: it expands to obtain as much energy as possible from fluorescents, which need to be CFL, LED or reflectors.
Surrounding or half moon: the plant absorbs light from all its angles. It is only needed having a reflector or medium intensity focuses.
– Big places:
Total SCROG: only apt for experts. It is a room full of cannabis except the roof and the entry wall. The floor and the other three walls are full of nets, offering the biggest expansion space to the plant.
Outdoors: it is necessary being extremely careful with its direction because it is the key to success. The holes in the net will be 15 centimeters large, making the expansion of the plant easier.
