hey everyone

im just coming to the end of my first grow which could have been better but hey ya got to start somewhere. i made numerous mistakes but so what, hopefully i wont be making the same mistakes twice. my first grow was a few automatics but i'll be using feminised seeds this time. i germinated my seeds in the pots they ended up growing in. this time im going to transplant as the plants get bigger. i want to maximise yield compared to space the best way i can. the plan is to scrog this time. im only using a 4x2 tent but some videos ive seen on scroging, people are using 3 plants some are using one???? i have 3 banana Kush, 6 strawberry Kush and 5 master Kush seeds, to choose from, all white label from sensi seeds. any hints or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,
I am 10 days into my first grow with autos. Did you try training the plants you are finishing at all and did you top them? I do not have enough exsperience to give you an opinion on the scroging method, but would be interested in following your progress.

people are using 3 plants some are using one???
My opinion on that is that you should have a different SCRoG or net for each plant. If one has issues or finishes different times, make things very difficult.

I have only done it one time with a 3' X 5' net and hated everything about it, but I have back issues, so it was very hard to get under or bend over to do all the work involved with a SCRoG. It was a huge yield of one plant, but it also took a minute to veg it long enough to cover the screen. Also, flip to flower when your net or screen is about 60% full, otherwise you might have a hard time keeping all the plant on the net.

As far as strain, I wouldn't think there's much difference, but honestly have no clue.

Scrog is a lot of work! Training is a daily chore in the veg cycle and as previously mentioned you have to be careful not to overgrow your screen. It has been what seems like a lifetime since I have done a scrog, but if you are pressed for space or light or both it is a great method for maximizing your yield:D

I like to train my plants with scrog in mind as I go along. The amount of space per plant will be determined by how long you veg for. You can grow one plant and train it to fill a 4x4 screen if you have the time. I like to have a variety of smoke, so I'll do a little topping, a little tying down to the side of the bucket and then right before I go into flower, I put the screen just above the canopy. As it stretches, I weave it under the screen, keeping its growth horizontal instead of vertical as best as I can. This also helps your side shoots be level with the tip of the plant and they become colas too.
