DIY Scrog Pots

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone :)

As promised i got a bit of time today to do i DIY on the individual scrog pots i make. I will not go into measurements as they can be adjusted to suit anyones needs  , i personally have 420 x 420 screens lol

They say necessity is the mother of all good ideas , i am limited for height were i flower and limited in working area so i always though i would not be able to scrog as i need to move my pots around . i also grow perpetually and like to grow many different strains.

All of these things were a roadblock in my quest to scrog . I had to come up with a design that was cheap easy to make , durable and could be moved around. Wood was out as it attacks mould and fungi unless really well sealed. I also didnt like the idea of a steel mesh as it wouldnt last and may rust.

I started to play around with pvc pipe and this is where i got to i hope you guys enjoy :)

Tools Needed:


4mm Drill Bit

20m 2.5mm Lacing Twine


20mm straight pvc joints

pvc pipe bender


2 x 20mm lengths pvc pipe

measuring tape

if you do not have a pipe bender you can substitute the bends with store bought 90 degree elbows



I like to use this type of screw as it works well



Step 1:

-Cut the desired length of pipe eg. if i want a 420 x 420 screen you would want to cut the length to 1.8m

-mark the middle and make your first bend




Step 2:

-Mark the desired length for next bend eg for me i want it 420mm , i would measure 400mm taking into account the extra 20mm from the width of the pipe

-Make the bend





Step 3:

By this point your pipe should be looking like this


-Repeat step 2 to create your next bend



Step 4:

Your pipe should now be looking like this


-Once again repeat step 2 to create the last bend


Step 5:

Your pipe should now be looking like this


-Cut pipe down to correct size and use a coupler to connect the 2 sides



Step 6:

-Mark a piece of wood to create a template to make the holes


-Place the frame on the template and mark the holes





Step 7:

-Drill Holes



Step 8:

-Thread the twine through the holes

don't cut the twine, start by threading through on one end and just unroll as you need , we will cut at the end to not waste any



-the twine must be in an under over configuration as it holds together better



-Tighten up the screen and tie off







Step 9:

I keep all my screens at the same height but pot height differs so my leg sizes differ


-measure and cut legs


-squash the ends of the pipe in a vice or heat up and flatten





Step 10:

-Screw legs onto frame







Step 11

-Fasten frame to pot







Hope you guys enjoyed it and if i can make one persons life easier i am happy
