Final week before addition of the SCROG
What’s up cannabis growers, my name is Dylan and welcome to week 6 of the Screen of Green Series by GreenBox Grown. Since I am no longer doing any training to these blue dream plants, this week will mainly include the watering and nutrient schedule. I will also be lowering the plants since they are getting taller and too close to the lights. This is important if you have grow lights where you are growing because if the plants get too close they can burn up, which is no good. Week 6 will be covered entirely by this video, but if you want to see the full Screen of Green Grow series all you have to do is visit greenboxgrown.com. Alright, now lets get started with day one of the week which will be a plain pHd watering and misting!
I already have my water and spray bottle mixed up, so all I have to do is water them the appropriate amount and I am all done. When misting the plants, it is important to really cover all the leaves as they are getting really bushy and dense with foliage. Keep an eye on how much these branches grow upwards each day, as they should be shooting up now that I am not training them anymore.
You can see certain tops are starting to get taller and pull ahead of the rest and that really is just happening at the centers of the plants where the most light is available so that is expected. Don’t worry about this either as when I add the SCROG that will even out all the plants and create that table top like shape. Here is a good aerial view of the plants and you can see they have already grown a decent amount since the beginning of this video! There are a ton of tops on each plant and they are in perfect health, so this is exactly where I want to be.
This is day 4 of the week and I decided to lower the plants a few feet so when they grow into the SCROG they aren’t too close to the lights. All I am using is a couple of Cinder Blocks and a rack for this plant stand. I have about 3 feet of distance from the lights to the tops of the plants which is great when growing outdoor. Indoors, you’ll want the lights to be about 2 feet above the tops.
Here we are for the Nutrient feeding which was actually done on day 3 as you can see they are still on the higher up stand. I will be repeating the week 4 mix on the fox farm feeding schedule and will be adding half a tsp of coco wet per gallon of water along with 1 tsp of cal mag product per gallon of water. I will be also be mixing the flower kiss foliar spray for misting the plants with. I recommend using about a quarter gallon of water per plant when they are at this size and to water it evenly throughout all of the soil. Then mist both the tops and bottoms of the leaves and you are all finished.
Now for the rest of the video I will just be misting the plants each day and showing you how much they have grown in the last 24 hours. The plants are clearly getting much taller each day and the branches are really stretching up towards the sun! This is exactly what we want to happen and you can see by all of the tops and thick foliage, that the training I have been doing for the last month has really paid off. Tops are growing in all directions and the lower ones are growing more outwards instead of up so they can get out of the shadows of the really tall tops in the middle.
At this point the plants are starting to grow into each other, and it is really getting hard to tell where one plant ends and the other begins. Each plant is starting to get into the range of over 30 tops which is perfect for using a scrog with. Right now I am allowing the plants to grow up and taller so when I do add the Scrog, I can start to train them through it horizontally and will eventually have all the branches at the same height. This makes it so each top gets the same amount of light during flower making all the buds grow like big like main colas. Anything below the scrog is trimmed away before flower to prevent LARF and small popcorn buds.
This is the final day of week 6 and I will be giving the plants a plain pH’d missing and will show you guys how tall the tops are getting. As i have mentioned previously, you will want to pull the branches apart while misting so you can get the lower foliage and everything in-between. Get the tops and bottoms of the leaves and don’t be afraid to lay it on heavy! The constant misting of the plants is one of the main reasons the tops are growing so quickly and you can tell because of how big and green the fan leaves are!
Alright guys, that is the end of Week 6 for the Screen of Green Grow Series by GreenBox Grown. Next week I will be adding the SCROG to these plants, so I will be showing you how to build the SCROG itself as well as how to hang it properly.
