...that is the question.

On each grow I like to try something new, or maybe two or three new things. 😎 I'd love to try and scrog, especially after re-visiting @Macky's montage video (

). However, my only grow space is a small, modified closet (about .75x.75 meter)with access to the plants on only the one side with the door, which would severely limit my ability to reach the back plants should there be a problem. In your opinion, would you do this or is it too big of a risk?

Many thanks!

Scrog, you'll make it happen. it may be tight but your not going in or under there daily, only once or twice. My biggest concern is if I can reach across it, 3'/90cm is good for me any bigger and I'm reaching too far, yours should be sweet. If the plant is willing then I'd do it, your space is fine. πŸ‘Β

l made up this for my 2x4 tent, you don’t need the top section but I have that there if I require to stop heavy buds from falling over.

I can take plants out when I want to defoliate ect, makes it a lot easier Fist Bump Β

@pirate33 very cool idea there. My closet door is smaller than the width of the closet, but this is a great idea that I am going to consider. Thanks for sharing!

@pirate33 by the way, what kind of wire did you decide to use? Β I know some use garden/pet fencing material.

@im_sparky I purchased the screen from a local hardware, it is a 50x50 mill square mesh the one I got is plastic coated, there was galvinised there aswell, tried string ect but plants tend to push a fair bit. Macky talks about the strenght of the plants a fair bit in his scrogs. Thumbs Up Β 

Cheers

@pirate33 inspired me to make a rolling scrog similar to his for my tiny grow closet. I have the base made (used 100% scraps except for the wheels), and materials ready for the PVC frame. My question for everyone: What is your preference for mesh size for tucking plants at the scrog layer? Pirate33 says his is 50mm or about 2". I've seen manufactured mesh at 3,4,5, & 6-inch squares.

I plan on have two layers of mesh: one for the scrog and a second, higher and wider mesh to support colas. You see that right there?Β  That is positive thinking! (or perhaps just wishful Smile )


I Hope Please GIF

@im_sparky having the 50 mill squares for the bottom part of the scrog gives you more choices as to where to eventualy haveΒ  the final stems start to stretch from.

On the second level it is made to be adjusted in height by just pushing the pvc joiners together, they don't have to have a lot of strength.

By doing this you can have the top level of the scrog at the required hieght, depending on how high the stems have stretched.

Around the perimeter of the top level, I have put screws in at once again 50 mil intervals, this way I will use string to put at the required distance to give the higher level of the stems the support that they need,

you can then choose exactly where you need to have the string, it doesn't have to make another level of same 50 mil squares, this way you can have the choice ofΒ  50 mil 100 mil or 150 mil squares.

I hope this helps
