DIY Scrog Pots

14 posts in this topic

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:

Drill

4mm Drill Bit

20m 2.5mm Lacing Twine

Saw

20mm straight pvc joints

pvc pipe bender

screws

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

20140130_141354_zpsf91e760e.jpg

 

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

20140130_141806_zps60880bad.jpg

20140130_142018_zps421d9951.jpg

 

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

20140130_142416_zps7fd0a16a.jpg

-Repeat step 2 to create your next bend

20140130_142432_zps954b7b2b.jpg

 

Step 4:

Your pipe should now be looking like this

20140130_142733_zpsd46c3ffe.jpg

-Once again repeat step 2 to create the last bend

 

Step 5:

Your pipe should now be looking like this

20140130_142946_zps1849e88b.jpg

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

20140130_143236_zps19bd30a0.jpg

 

Step 6:

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

20140130_144205_zpsfb0c2dea.jpg

-Place the frame on the template and mark the holes

20140130_144218_zpsd32e9c95.jpg

20140130_144232_zps91d67b55.jpg

 

 

Step 7:

-Drill Holes

20140130_144730_zpsb5e54f48.jpg

 

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

20140130_145357_zps05eb3215.jpg

20140130_145945_zps76db4904.jpg

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

20140130_150002_zps98998b22.jpg

20140130_150210_zps47a7d3a9.jpg

-Tighten up the screen and tie off

20140130_150541_zpsf294733f.jpg

20140130_150633_zps2651873f.jpg

20140130_165558_zpseefab0d7.jpg

 

 

Step 9:

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

20140130_185325_zpsa23fb8ae.jpg

-measure and cut legs

20140130_185349_zps7929f64b.jpg

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

20140130_185439_zps949a1908.jpg

20140130_185544_zps8a00fa34.jpg

20140130_185715_zpsc753acbf.jpg

 

Step 10:

-Screw legs onto frame

20140130_190509_zpsd41fa9f1.jpg

20140130_190516_zps69efe850.jpg

 

Step 11

-Fasten frame to pot

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
