The 5 Best Cannabis Strains for a SCROG Set-up

Many experienced cannabis cultivators will be fully aware of what SCROG means.

However, for those who don’t, SCROG, or SCReen Of Green, is a training technique in which plants are literally grown through a screen or mesh.

This technique is often used when growing space is limited and you need to control a plant with notable stretching tendencies.

Check out which 5 strains are ideal if you have a SCROG set up and ready to go, all of which are available to buy at Seedsman.com.

For expert SCROG tips, there’s no one better than Northern Scrogger, who grew the first 2 strains below. Check out his website or Facebook for daily tips and tricks!

Blueberry

Northern Scrogger

Blueberry was created by Canadian DJ Short and dates back to the 1970s. It is a 3-way Indica-dominant hybrid cross of an Afghani strain together with Thai and a Purple Thai.  

When training Blueberry, you will want to cover as much of the net as possible, because when she is flowered, she will stretch substantially, with multi-branched tightly packed flowers.

Unsurprisingly, when fully cured, Blueberry has an incredibly fruity perfume along with the unmistakable sweet taste of blueberries. The effect is a very potent yet happy one, which is euphoric yet relaxing and enduring. Another quality of Blueberry is that, although taking a while to cure out, when correctly prepared and packaged, it has a long shelf-life compared with many strains available today.

Peyote Zkittles

Peyote Zkittlez is an Indica-dominant hybrid strain bred by pollinating Peyote Wi-Fi with the sweet-tasting Zkittlez. Peyote Wi-Fi is itself a cross of Peyote Purple and the US Indica Wi-Fi strain. Zkittlez is a 3-way cross of Grape Ape, Grapefruit, and a third, top-secret strain. 

She will grow tall and with an abundance of new shoots from every side branch, making her easy to train and set in place.

This lady will also react very well to super cropping and snapping of stems, allowing a very strong and dense canopy to be formed above the screen.

When flowered, she will stretch around 150% which is ideal for using a screen.

Zkittlez’s scent is delightful and entices with ripe tropical fruits and candy, which follow through in the taste. THC production is over 20%. The effect is very uplifting, especially for an Indica strain. Therapeutically, it is used to combat stress, depression, anxiety, and those with ADHD. 

Peyote Zkittlez will make a superb, highly potent, and high-yielding Indica-dominant addition to all seed collections and is sure to become a grower’s preference. Get yours from Seedsman now.

Critical Purple Kush

Critical Purple Kush is not too dissimilar to the Critical plant except for the fact that it is a little bit taller and has a longer inter-nodal length. It was bred by crossing Blueberry, Critical and Peyote Purple and is 80% indica.

Each plant can yield between 600 – 800 gr. each in this environment. SCROG flowering takes about 60 – 65 days producing 400 – 500 gr/m2. The branches of this strain are rather spindly, and it is strongly recommended to tie/train them to stop the large, spongy, purple buds from snapping them. Not all of the plants will turn purple, but the best results colour-wise will occur when the night temperatures fall markedly from those of daytime.

The taste combines pineapple and forest fruit flavours along with little nuances of lemon and Skunk derived from the Critical component. THC production is high with low CBD. The effect is extremely physically relaxing and is recommended for medical use.

Strawberry Banana Grape

best strains for SCROG

The best fruit cocktail you are ever likely to try, Strawberry Banana Grape is a sativa-dominant strain that packs a punch in both taste and effect. 

While she doesn’t grow that tall, she does grow very wide! The buds on this plant are especially abundant and thick, so branches must be supported during cultivation. 

Strawberry Banana Grape offers exactly what you would expect; immense fruitiness with nuances of diesel.

Peyote Wi-Fi

Peyote Wi-Fi is an indica-dominant cross of Wi-Fi (The White x Fire OG) and Peyote Purple (selected Bubba Kush phenotype). It has a typical indica structure and is a medium-sized plant with big, broad leaves that produce large crops when done in a SCROG. It boasts very high THC levels and is a big resin producer. 

When grown IN A scrog, give these plants a vegetative growth period of 15 – 25 days before switching to a 12/12 lighting schedule to induce flowering, which takes 75 days. Indoor yields are very good at between 500 – 650 gr/m2.

The scent is sour, lemon/lime with diesel notes, while the taste of the buds is somewhat earthy with diesel fuel notes. THC production is exceptionally high at between 20 – 26%, while CBD levels remain below 1%. It is a highly potent strain that will lend itself well to physical relaxation. High resin production makes this a perfect strain from which to make cannabis extracts and concentrates.

Start your SCROG journey with Wi-Fi.
