Secrets to grow marijuana in ScrOG outdoors
Written by Redacción Mota Radio on 11 October, 2021
As you know, ScrOG (Screen of Green) is a method in which a grid is used to train marijuana plants to grow horizontally so that all parts of the plant receive the same amount of light.
This technique is very popular among cannabis growers because with it you can not only make better use of the growing space but also achieve higher productivity.
Usually, this method is associated with marijuana indoors gowing, but did you know that you can also apply it outdoors? Yes, that’s right, outdoors it is also very useful.
When you grow your Mary Jane on a terrace for example, if you have little space or you want your girls to go unnoticed, this technique will come in handy.
Say no more and take note of some key tips to carry out this method outdoors (terrace) as best as possible.
1- Adequate pot size
For terrace or rooftop growing, it is advisable that the pots are 10 to 20 liters, so that the roots have enough space to expand. Likewise, make sure you choose the right size pot for you.
Preferably always use white pots or pots or as light as possible to protect the roots from the heat of the sun.
2- Choose the ideal cannabis strains
Some cannabis strains are much more compatible with the ScrOG method than others. Generally recommended are those genetics that tend to branch more, as is the case with sativa strains, with these strains growers will be able to easily weave their branches together to fill a ScrOG.
Another key tip to ensure that everything goes well when applying this technique is to always use the same variety of cannabis when growing with this method, because this way you will not have a problem with the size of your plants or the flowering periods.
3- Structure for outdoor ScrOG
ScrOG nets are not so complicated to make, you can choose to use a folding net, a guide mesh that is used in vegetable gardens, or even build a structure made of boards and wires.
It is recommended that the mesh has holes of between 5 to 10 cm of opening and that it is not metallic because it could heat up in the sun and cause damage to your plants.
