Screen Of Green – SCROG – Green Screen, Screen Of Green (abbreviated SCROG ) is one of the LST or Low Stress Training which means LOW STRESSED TRAINING because there is a physical damage of plants.
What is the Screen Of Green (SCROG)?
SCROG is a very similar method of cultivation as LST training. Actually, for me, it is LST except that instead of wires or cords we are using a net to give the necessary direction of the new growth tips.
How to Make Screen Of Green or SCROG?
When the plant reaches the desired height you can start making the scrog.
The first step is to buy the grid. This may be a traditional wire fence with holes of approx. 5 centimeters (2 inches). Mount the mesh above the plant and its main stem as the plant grows gently bend the grow tip and weave it into the screen.
Bending the main growth tip will promote new growth in the branches below which in turn you will weave into the screen. When you have a screen full of new tips change your lighting to 12/12 to initiate flowering.
The term Screen Of Green or SCROG applies to training one plant.
If you place several or even many plants below the screen it becomes a Sea of Green or SOG.
