    Just messin' around, I decided to try my luck at a SCROG(screen of green)
    I built a trellis in about an hour out of things I already had laying around.. So here's what I came up with...

    in the first pic you can see the frame is very simple, I just glued and nailed some wooden trim together after deciding how much room I needed (determined by wattage of light devided into square feet)

    Next, I measured and marked every 2 inches along the frame, this is where I placed the small 'finishing' nails.

    Keeping the string 'semi-tight' I created a 'grid' which I will use to train the plant with in order to keep an even 'canopy' of buds....I hope;)

    Thanks Thor! It's far from perfect IMO, I like THGs design where the screen is attached to the lid.. mine is hanging from string, but it's super light-weight. I will be traveling this summer for up to a week at a time, so I'm using an 18gal tote for a DWC res;) So far, I average 6+ ounces under 400 watts, I want to see if I can make it happen with 1 plant.. it's all for fun either way:p Thanks for hangin out.

    Turkeyneck, how tall before you put them in flower. also, how high is your trelles.

    i copied THG's scrog but i let my girls get too tall so i couldnt use my screen so i started LST'n them and all tide down the canopy is still @ 2 1/2 ft.

    ill make sure they go into flower alot sooner next time.

    Thats a good question, timing is everything with scrog, as soon as the screen is even, keeping in mind the flower stretch, I'll flower her, no more than another week from the way it's lookin' though, DWC grows pretty fast;)

    That's a pretty awesome design you have there. I might just copy that but replace the timber with Qubelok.
