How does a SCROG setup affect yield for cannabis plants?

I’ve heard that using a SCROG setup can increase yields for cannabis plants, is this true? And if so, can you explain how it works?

One answer “How does a SCROG setup affect yield for cannabis plants?

  1. A SCROG setup, also known as Screen of Green (“Scrog”), is an effective and versatile way to increase yields when growing cannabis plants. This growing technique uses an overhead trellis system secured to support wires, or screen, to divide the main stalk into multiple main colas. ScrOG works by curving the main stalks and tying them to the mesh screen, allowing buds to form lower on the plant, rather than just on top. As the buds on top get bigger, the other vertical branches can be trained and supported to the mesh horizon.

    By doing this, the cannabis plants will receive more light and will be able to achieve a more even and comprehensive growth pattern. The result is that the plant has more accessible surface area for the buds and more buds can be formed because of the increased light and bigger surface area.

    This technique was popularized as a way to get a more even canopy when growing indoors, since cannabis plants naturally grow upwards and outwards, although it can also be used outdoors. It is important to note that you must use a mesh screen that the plant can properly latch onto when using this technique.

    The main benefit of using SCROG is that the buds become more accessible, allowing for better pruning, easier harvesting and greater yields in the end. You can have multiple layers of canopy which provides more bud sites and stems that can receive light. This can help improve vegetative growth and bud formation to significantly increase the yields.

    By using a SCROG setup you also limit the amount of space in your grow tent and it helps to control the height of the plant. This keeps light from going to waste and allowing more of it to be directed to the branches and buds for more even lighting.

    This technique can also help to improve the quality of the buds. With a SCROG setup, you can reduce the amount of air that moves around the flowers which helps to keep them more compact, dense and tasty.

    Overall, a SCROG setup is a great way to take control of your grow and maximize your yields. It is one of the best ways to evenly distribute light to more bud sites and improve the overall quality of your crop. It can help you get more out of your cannabis plants while using the same amount of growing space. With proper maintenance and time, you can easily get large and healthy yields.
