Optimum light for cannabis plants

Elijah Farley
Every cannabis breeder or grower dream of having the best yield that lighten their face with smile. There comes a time when growing cannabis outside is no longer an option and you have to shift to greenhouses or tents. Changing the field is usually challenging to newbies because the success of cannabis cultivation depends on appropriate lighting.

Cannabis are photo-period sensitive and will quickly adapt the lighting cycle you introduce to them. The light power you use directly relates to the yield and quality of the cannabis you are going to harvest. Regardless of whether you are a newbie or a veteran, there are two critical points of cannabis growth that you should carefully manage the light cycles.

One of the stages is the cannabis vegetative phase—this is the phase where your cannabises are developing leaves and stems at a faster rate. This is a critical point because it is the point where you can control the cannabis shape and size. All you have to do is manipulate the light supply to promote better and healthy yields.

To achieve the flowering cannabis phase,

Like all plants, the more hours you expose your cannabis to light the better the health and potential yields. When at this phase, expose your cannabis to at least 18 hours of constant light. If you would like your plants to achieve their maximum size possible, leave the growing light on for 24 hours. Previous experiments have shown no cannabis plant will start blooming until they are exposed to 12 hours of total darkness.

Supplying 18 or more hours of growing light will make your cannabis remain in the vegetative phase as long as you want—even forever! Light is not the only ingredient to achieve large cannabis plants. A well maintained grow tent and constant weeding also hold key to better and higher cannabis yields.

To achieve the flowering cannabis phase, you will need to expose the vegetative cannabis to 12 hours of total darkness. You should begin the 12 hours darkness cycle immediately the cannabis plant has reached the desired size and shape. Experience cannabis growers will adapt the natural cannabis blooming cycle.

Cannabis usually start blooming when the days are shorter than the nights. To achieve optimum blooming or flowering, you will have to mimic the natural cultivation pattern of outdoor plants. That is, 12 hours of day light and 12 hours of total darkness. As said, you will alter the 18 or 24 hours of grow light which is favorable to vegetating cannabis to 12 hours.

If you carefully manage your cannabis plants in the vegetative stage, which take a period of three to six months, prepare for a bounty harvest. Indoor cannabis are easier to cultivate because you have control over the light. It is crucial to understand the space required from one plant to the next and the lighting cycle.

Finally, you can rip many benefits when you grow your cannabis because you can breed the strain and quality that you desire. Nonetheless, this is only possible when you adapt appropriate cultivation routine and lighting cycles. This is not something you will grasp overnight, you need to try to experiment until the discussed tips above work. They have been tested vigorously so when you put them into practice, rest assured they will work out.
