Re: Vertical Club ?

Not many vertical journals about... but i'm aware of the odd grower who has done a vertical grow !


Slighty more advanced in light set up than most growers tho...


Give me some time i may be able to find a journal for ya to browse... remember some one by the name of gator or some thing who done DIY job on vertical grow.

Yea this site is short of vertical growing content and I have searched all over it. Surprised tbo...doing a build out now and was going horizontal but really thinking vertical in a 2k set up employing a stadium idea/octagonal structure combining the stadium-doughnut/coliseum idea each having its own light. Just thoughts for now tho...sort of like the bottom pic of Fuzzys reply but with perhaps 3 tiers and each section on casters or at least the middle slot to have access to the middle.

Nice little doughnut jummejum!

Peace,

I agree with you fatty!

The only disadvantage i find, is that the back of the plant seems to be smaller and is later in development.

That is a very good point but I do think you get bigger front colas which more than make up for it .I also use lots of string and try to keep the wall of colas as I as spread as possible

If you have the ability to rotate or turn them that would give better overall growth if you do not have them stationary.

I am sold on the idea and would love to get the vert growers to chime in. Also.....I like the custom ideas and DIY set ups that are unique to everyones environment/dimensions.

Peace,

I've been cheaking out the verts too and thinking about going that route since theres not much info on how to set it up I guess everyone will be different and produce different results but I agree that if you can rotate them 90 degrees every week it should be even growth

Most botanists are ignoring the 2nd law of thermodynamics. Trees oriented on the outside of a cylindrical screen in a sort of modified coliseum ScrOG are expending fantastic proportions of their energy bending to the will of the chicken wire as they grow toward their "sun" ( vertical HID system). It's wasteful and waste has to come from somewhere and go somewhere.

Here it comes from yield and goes to heat.

A thermodynamically more sensible system is to follow the contours of the plant. Wrap your cage about the circumference of the pot and orient your light source symmetrically so that the cannabis grows stress free and vertically, the way it's genotypically wired.
