  • Best SCROG schematics/materials? Trouble finding specific parts?

    Good day all,
    I've come to the end of my first harvest learning that I absolutely need to build a SCROG for my next cycle. (4 white widow autos).
    My materials:
    4 x 4.5ft 3/4 inch pvc pipes
    4 corner connectors (I CANNOT FIND THESE!)
    4 1 - 1.5 ft 3/4 inch pvc pipes (legs)
    Mason string
    Small screws.


    I'm having a very difficult time finding those corner junctions. I've went to RONA, Home Hardware, Canadian Tire and haven't found them..... The guy at rona said: "I doubt you'll find that anywhere..." Now I'm thinking about improvising the corner junctions somehow....maybe tennis balls with holes (other ideas?). Or maybe just recreate the entire frame out of wood. I like the idea of adjusting the height, some sort of slot/peg system to move them to different levels. Has anyone ever tried hanging the SCROG from the top of the grow tent?

    Comments welcome!

    I made mine using simple 1x2 furring strips held together with wood screws. Only item I had to order was the netting- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    Used a staple gun to secure the netting to the frame...done.

    Hey Primo, great use of materials. Gonna have to give this one some thought. I’m using PVC and an off the shelf trellis net in my 4x4x80 tent. It’s my first SCROG. My plant is in a 3.5 gallon Bubble Boy and I use a battery powered transfer pump for water changes. So my SCROG is at 30”. That facilitates ease during water changes. I know that is a little high but has worked out well so far. I have zip tied the legs of the frame to the frame of my tent so the plant can’t push it up. When I’ve had enough of this setup I’m gonna give your design a try.

    Grow well.

    Be well.

    After some review I decided today to make this purchase for $35:
    https://www.amazon.ca/Trellis-Layer-...w+tent+trellis

    I really like the creativity and "Macgyvering" that others have put forward. I welcome more ideas, pictures, advice.

    You guys ROCK!

    This is very impressive! I don't think I have the patience to create this, but I do love the way it looks. Nice work!

    I make my own from string and bamboo sticks. The way it’s done enables the pot, plant and frame to be moved as required.

    ​ Whilst wandering around Menards I noticed these in the shelveing dept. "Xtreme garage wire racks" and had an aha moment. Four bucks ea. two of em spliced together with a couple of small metal rods and zip ties, a length of small chain and a couple of ratchet type light hangers. It fills half of my 4x4 tent and you can tip it for the slackers. the openings are 2"x4" I thought if they aren't ​​ big enough 15 min. with a sawzall could make em 4x4 but I didn't need to. About $20.00 total Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_1497.JPG Views:	1 Size:	2.01 MB ID:	282815 adjustable from the light to the floor and I can remove it in about 5 sec. Oh yeah the plants can't pick this bad boy up.

    Thanks Mr. Furley! I'm definately looking into the net now.

    To be honest I would just get a net, but I understand the Diy bug.
    Good luck.

    I'm in Canada so I went to lowes.ca and searched for that item - came up empty results.

    I went to ebay.ca as well. The item is there... but shipping is brutal, nearly paying double what the item is worth just to get it here.

    US $8.09
    (C $10.78)

    This looks like a very good alternative. Looks like it would be tight enough and it could be adjustable in height as well. Thanks Toker1!

    Alright, I wouldn't expect it to be flimsy and bendy. Most plans that I've seen use 3/4 - 1/2 inch pvc. I have a trellis which I could use, although I thought that the tighter the better, going back and forth between screws on the frame with the mason string. I feel that the trellis I have is too loose.

    Thanks for the comment!
