how to grow weed step by step

Screen Of Green ( SCROG )
If you are looking for a fun way to get growing mmj you should totally take a look at setting up a scrog. With a scrog which is a Screen Of Green allows a grower to run less plants but still get a completely even and yield producing grow.

Intro To Scrogging
To put it simple, a scrog is a screen ( some use hemp rope, garden trellis and other diy methods ) that you put at a specific height which you will then make sure that all of your plant colas fill in a “square” in the screen. You get the entire plant to grow up towards the screen but keep tucking it under so that all the secondary growth on the plants start filling the other “squares” within the screen as well.

Once you have a good 50% to 75% of the screen filled up you will then be ready to flip them ( go from veg light cycle to flower cycle ) and then as the flowering progresses keep tucking your plants under the screen so that your canopy continues to stay the same height which ends up helping create a ton of top colas that will yield HUGE.

The issue with common growing methods versus simple training methods tends to let plants grow at their own pace and by the time flowering comes around you have some plants over 4 feet tall and others under 2 feet which ends up becoming very inefficient.

Who Likes To Scrog
Many patients and non patients who worry about plant count laws will generally run a low plant count. Sometimes growers will run a SINGLE plant using the screen of green method and still be able to yield quite well considering they are only running singles.

Anyone who doesn’t like the extra work that can happen ( in a sog for example ) might enjoy only having to tend to a few plants versus a TON crammed into the same area.

Why Scrog Works With Low Plant Count MMJ Laws
We are still living at a time where banning plants is still the norm even though we all know that you can’t FORCE people into YOUR WAY OF LIFE even if you feel it isn’t the best thing for them. For those who still believe marijuana is harmful, please research how many deaths have been caused from marijuana compared to cigarettes and alcohol. I will save you some time as I know the current death toll from marijuana which is ZERO, now go research what those other two so called “safe” drugs ( cigarettes and alcohol ) have caused as far as death rates go.

Due to other peoples worries and the save the children mentality many growers have to limit their plant count which is really irritating especially when growing from seed as you need to locate the males and females, cut clones, put some in flower all the while trying to stay within a set plant count.

If there is to be any plant count for growers it should be no less than 200, this would allow clones, veg, mother section and flowering areas PLUS a buffer for most growers. We personally do not believe in ANY plant count because this is a beneficial plant which everyone should grow and enjoy.

SCROG Compared To SOG
Without the issue of plant count as mentioned above, there are some growers who prefer less plants under a SCROG and others like a ton of plants in s SOG. As you get your green thumb started you will soon find out what style works best for YOU.

In the end there is no magic pill that will grow better bud that can compare to trial and error and YEARS of experience which allow you to make mistakes, correct them and continue getting better.
