Scrogging is a process that involves putting a set of plants together and ensuring that their arms are fully stretched so that they don’t shade each other out or grow on top of one another.

Nonetheless, you must remember that every plant is different and that there is no specific measurement of how far apart they should be. Scroggins enables you to study the plant and fine-tune it into a healthy plant.

Why scrog weed

When left to its device, weed can grow taller and wider than is required. Scroggins aims at reducing the upper branches' height and increasing the lower branches' height, eventually stretching them evenly across the plane.

By placing the screen above the plant, successful growers can weave branches through the mesh to enable plants to grow and mature. Further, the grower can attain a horizontal canopy by redirecting the branches and running them across the screen.

That said what are the advantages of Scrogging?

  • Light Exposure - Scrogging ensures that the plant is evenly exposed to the light. Untrained plants feature one cola that grows taller than the rest of the plant. This means that the light rig must be placed above the main cola.
  • Yield - Scrogging ensures that each bud receives enough sunlight; it maximizes the photosynthetic potential, leading to an increase in resin production and size. Scroggins also transforms the central cola and the main stem into a multitude.
  • Aeration – Scrogging ensures that the plant receives sufficient airflow above and inside the canopy. You can also add a fan to enhance the airflow and reduce the risk of spreading fungal pathogens.
  • Maximize space -Many growers obtain better yields from one scragged plant in a small space than with many untrained plants. Home growers use the Scrogging technique to maximize yields.
