The Benefits of Light for Growing Cannabis Plants

The Benefits of Light for Growing Cannabis Plants

We want to focus on the importance of light as such. Like water. All plants need light to grow. They use light in the process of photosynthesis
to metabolize water and carbon dioxide in the air. To help them grow with the cannabis plants as a repetition of nature. You have to have a period during the day when the lights are on, and a period at at night where darkness reigns. Believe it or not. Or not, plants need to rest and sleep, because they can’t grow 24 hours a day. They’re just exhausted and struggling.

However, when it comes to cannabis plants, they also respond better to certain of the seven spectra that make up the light – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and purple depending on the stage of growth. Photosynthesis is optimal with red light and the same spectrum at which blooms can flourish. Whereas eventually green light is optimal for the weeks before flowering. Once your plants have moved into the vegetative stage ideally
you want to provide a minimum of 250 watts of light per square meter, but 1,000 watts is ideal.

You need to be careful here because some bulbs can generate significant heat to produce 1,000 watts of light, so LED lights may be a good choice. Additionally Some LED lights allow you to adjust the amount of red blue and green light. So if you want to stimulate the blooms by switching to blue light, then finally to red light will give the best results. Additionally previously using 16 hours of light and 8 hours of darkness, this should be reduced to 12 hours of each, and then the buds production will be optimal. Let us know what color spectra you use in the comments section.
