To Scrog or not to Scrog

Hello all, 

 

I’m wondering if I should use a scrog on my first grow or not? Does it make more difficult to water plants and also empty the drip trays? 

 

Does using it give a better yeild? 

 

Thanks

Learn to walk for a few grows before making things complicated for yourself is my advise. Yield will come but takes some learning.

Quality first dude, always.  No one wants a shit yield, but shit quality?  I'd give it away.

Personally listen to what this guy is saying. I let my plants grow naturally (only used a scrog net support weight upper buds) first grow and the yield was not small by any stretch. Much better to get a handle on good watering practices, when to give nutrients, getting air circulation / extraction right, temperatures / humidity at different stages grow and a multitude of other things before embarking on advanced growing techniques to increase yield.

 

As @FatBoy77 said, all about the quality :yep: and far too many external factors will impact on this for a novice grower without added complications.

 

Link to my first grow if you need any convincing that growing naturally will only facilitate a small yield. See final posts.

Yeah, don't run before you can walk.

 

It's also good to know how the strain grows before you ScroG it.

I was in a similar position to OP.

I decided not to scrog as I didn't have 360 degree access on my tent and it would be hard to water and prune.

I just used string tied to holes in the top of the pot to train my plants
