“Screen of Green” is a training technique similar to “Sea of Green.” In small grows where space is limited and a lighting footprint is small, growers can install netting above the plant canopy to make sure light is distributed evenly between plants. Because of the “screen,’ most individual plants will form multiple colas to attempt to get around the physical blockage.
Advantages: Useful for small grows to maximize harvest times and amounts.
Disadvantages: More seeds/cuttings are required and more attention is required. Tightly packed plants tend to favor pathogenesis.
