For those of you that have used both a SCROG net & mainlining with a tomato cage, which do you prefer and why?

@GrowingisFunkO hi buddy ! sry for my bad English thx :+1: To my humble point of view...you have to ask yourself the question otherwise :triumph::blush:

Why should I choose one or the other ?? dude I'm sure you've already asked yourself the question but as you hesitate, I can try to give you some leads…
what'is the strain ? more indica or sativa ? in this case sativa…normally strech more

where can i find some infos ? here ??? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::+1:

some growers here said that some pheno's was clearly indica and some diaries here clearly indicate sativa traits….

that's a first indication ? but you are needed a bit more

How do you manage your LST and topping method ?? what is the optimal footprint of your light in the tent,, how many plants do u have ?? etc etc etc. :relieved:
...in fact your question finds his answer according to what you do...buddy ! and the knowledge that u find/know about the strain and his traits...it's the only good way to make a good choice.

to my point of view all the answers you could have had left you in the same hesitation State...I may be all wrong...:pray:

by cons what I can tell you of what i see on your pics it seems that you do a good choice… :+1:but according to you light i will try to to prioritize your main plant instead of ur clones on the light footprint...question of yield ! :kissing_heart:

hope it helps you ! :pray:

Hiya buddy. I don't use iether method tbh. Can get similar results using just lst.
On the question though, scrogging is pretty much unarguably the best way to get the big yields.
It's really hard to compete weight wise with someone who knows how to scrogg properly.
By keeping the canopy wide and of equal height, it maximises the amount of light the plant can make use off. It also means you can run the light as close as possible to the entire plant..
Mainlining does that too, and it looks pretty but takes a lot longer and the yields are nowhere close. In the 2 months it takes to make 30 odd colas you could have had 200 colas on the scrogg net.
