Written by Redacción Mota Radio on 1 September, 2021
SOG and ScrOG techniques tend to be increasingly popular growing methods because, with both, you can improve the yields of your marijuana plantation.
You may find it hard to decide on one of these techniques in particular as both have their advantages and disadvantages. Also, which one is right for you will depend on the goals you are seeking.
Growing in ScrOG
The ScrOG (Screen of Green) technique is a method that uses mesh or netting to guide plant growth.
This technique is especially recommended for Sativa cannabis strains and can be done both from cuttings and seeds. With a few plants in large containers, a good area can be planted.
One of the disadvantages of this method is that not all strains are ideal for this method of growing. Also, the fact of having a mesh can make the work difficult when pruning. Even the access to apply preventive treatments against pests or fungi can be more difficult.
The SOG (Sea of Green) method involves filling the space we have with the maximum amount of small plants, which grow very close to each other.
Generally, the strains recommended to apply the SOG technique are indica or auto-flowering cannabis varieties. This technique is also ideal to start growing from cuttings.
One of the main advantages is that this technique is usually faster than ScrOG. With this method, you will obtain abundant harvests in limited spaces. In addition, you will get it in less time. Also, with the SOG method, you will have easier access to all the pots.
With this technique, it is not recommended to mix different varieties. Try to make sure that your cuttings are all from the same mother plant.
Having several plants requires more care; you will have to be more attentive.
