LST vs. ScrOG (or Combo?)

  1. Ok ... I will admit, both of the mentioned methods of "training" have been rather elusive when doin' research. Not as in the information isn't there, but as in my brain conceptually thinks of a 1000 ways this training could be applied. So, I am asking anyone if LST and ScrOG can be implemented together? I guess my rationale is if you start with LST and bush out your plant, you have initial surface area expansion. As you let the plant grow vertically over small periods couldn't you then set up a screen at your "max desired height" to iniate the self training of the plant? Since there is far more surface area, more of the plant will self train along the screen creating an even larger canopy. Am I missing something? If so ... please correct me.

    I am looking into using the methods in conjunction on 4-6 Papaya trees in the same room (in hopes of 1lb + dry harvest). I know I have been asking many questions regarding tons of different areas, but I am just lookin' to find out a "grow method" that I can self-indoctrinate with that because second nature when re-grows come along. Oh, and my guess is that for 4-6 plans I will need quite a bit of space ... anyone have rough dimensions? I was thinkin' 6x6x5 would be good for this method. Also, for scrOG growers, do you just prefab a screen that suits the size of your growing area and just let the plant work, or do you set uo individual screens?
     
  2. HIGH All, hey dart LST and Scrog grow hand in hand....to get the best out of your Scrog is to LST, Top and FIM..the more you do the more Bud sites.

    As for putting the screen on I'd...(I've never done Scrog) wait till you have sufficent Bud sites and then put the screen at your desired Height and train them into the screens holes.....Make cents Bro??
     
  3. IMO if you are going for big yeilds, you need big grow time......
    heres somthing ive tried 3 times now n got 8.6oz from 3 plants the last time....
    first i found a 60/40 sativa/indica hybrid that had tendencies around 10 ft indoors witch ended up to be of the COUGH strain (originated from a herrer) from CO.
    thinking that if i could harness the height this strain is excellent meds ....
    i LST'd them from 3 weeks totally pinned down then UN-pinned them for a week ...did this 3 times over 90 days in 5 gal buckets. my conopy was incredible and covered a 2.5/3 area roughly 2.5 ft tall when we went to bloom.... at ths point a peice of lattice work was placed over the tops to support the soon to be weight ...
    when the tops came through they were tied to the lattice and dierected as i wanted them.... i definately couldve used more space around day 60-70 ..
    after 180 days i had HUGE BUDS!!!!! primo smoke that glued you where you smoked it and tickled your body for a while :hello: didnt take a wet weight :( ...
    i cant help but ponder the thought of doing 50 or so this way .... if i had the means to i probably would ..... if i could grow balls that big in the states....;)
