Hi there, I have an Amnesia plant setup in a SCROG and since the stretch started I now have lots of branches penetrating the screen - should I now tie these down or just let em go? I don’t know how much longer they will be stretching - I live in Massachusetts and I think they started stretching early last week. 

Second question is should I bother stripping all of the crap immediately under the screen or just remove enough fan leaves to allow penetration by the sun?

 

thanks

At this point I’d keep tucking the stems under the SCROG until flowering begins. If she’s stretching now, that’s probably soon but keep tucking if you have space in the screen. Leave the lower canopy alone until flowering has fully started and you see little white pistil puffs on the buds. If you defoliate too early it will cause the plant to stretch wildly and your job of controlling the canopy gets 5 times harder. Be patient with any defoliation at this point.

Yer, early defoliation is the big enemy of the SCROG. Better to defoliate late than early in this situation.

@binger I LOVE that outdoor grow of yours! I am in a legal state, but do not have a situation where an outdoor grow would be feasible.  Hope you get some monster buds! Keep us posted.

@im_sparky - Thanks - I’m hoping for 25 sq ft of buds but the middle still needs to be populated
