So to me I would place your net and then veg for another 2-3 weeks till the net starts to fill up and then see from there . If the net gets full quickly you may want to think about switching to flower . If your net isn't getting full quickly then I advise you wait and veg a little longer till you see the net's base is starting to get full . You don't really wanna rush a scrog set up because then you're doing it for nothing essentially . So all in all I'd say you still got some time before you switch the lights , but at the end of the day its all about how you wanna run your show . I hope this information helps you to determine when you should flip the lights on a Scrog set up . - Happy Growing!

Hi @mixo420! Depending on the strain, you should flip to flowering stage once your canopy has spread up to 40-60% of your scrog net. For sativa dominant strains which tends to stretch a lot in preflowering stage, 40% would be better. For indica dominant strains which usually shows closer nodes and a short stretch, 60% will be fine. You will have to carefully tie the new growth everyday in order to have a flat canopy. Too many scrogs are poorly done and if not adjusted everyday in preflowering stage, then it becomes stem support, but not a real scrog. Hope this will help, happy growing! :facepunch:

The best moment to switch is when the net is 50% filled as you expect for the stretch of the plant to fill the last 50% during that phase
