Trellis netting is great for training the direction you want your plants to grow.
It also helps support the plant, and the weight of the large buds you hope to cultivate.
The two main methods of trellising are vertical and horizontal.
This refers to whether you are directing the plant to grow very tall, or if you want short, wide plants.
By using trellis in your garden, you can make the most out of your growing space. If you have limited height, you can implement a horizontal trellis system to push a wide canopy.
As you begin flowering, your stems will become stressed from the added weight, and the last thing you want is for one to snap. Trellis netting will prevent this from happening.
There are two very prominent trellis strategies, known as SOG and SCROG.
SOG, or sea of green, is a strategy where growers try to maximise the space they have by fitting as many plants as possible. Plants are harvested very quickly, and tend to yield lower.
SCROG, or screen of green, is the opposite mindset. Here, growers try to optimise the space they have with fewer plants.
Plants are trained to grow as wide as possible, with as many branches to produce bigger buds as possible.
Plants are given ample veg and flowering times, and the trellis is very necessary for holding the heavy buds.
