You need to know that selecting a variety is really important in growing marijuana. The quantity and yields of those plants which are being grown under the artificial lights would actually depend on the variety of the seed or if the plants are being grown from the clones or seeds. Moreover, you may consider how many days to grow the plants are being put into flowering and optimization of the climatic conditions in the grow-room.
Surely, there has been an increase in the growing of cannabis indoors. If this is done properly, then such would certainly produce a fantastic quality that is usually better than those on the streets. You have to know as well that growing cannabis indoors would depend on the use of those powerful artificial lights in order to replicate the sun’s effect. These lights actually take hundreds of Watts of electricity to work and they are often HPS lights however the other types of lights are quite fantastic when growing those marijuana buds.
The cannabis loves light and that successful indoor grower would try to deliver so much light too. Consider 250 watts/m2 as the minimum starting point and then aim for two to three times that level if you can. If there is more light, then you will find denser and bigger buds and you can also get to enjoy bigger yields as well. Keep in mind that delivering high light would level the successful indoor grower would keep the plants close to the light as possible so that it can maximize the light intensity reaching those buds and leaves. For the medical or recreational grower, having that growing area of 1 – 2 square meters can have 400W or 600W HPS lamp.
The indoor cannabis grower should also make sure that the plant doesn’t grow really near the hot light to avoid causing damage. Test the light at the back of your hand if it feels cools, since this would also be the same for the plants too. When using the 400W lamp, the growers won’t grow the plants to 40 to 50 cm of the bulb. The cannabis plants may actually be bent over too and tied when they would become very tall. Some of those indoor growers would train the plants in this manner to get much of the plant close to that high intensity light.
Particular strains would respond really well through pinching out the growing tip of the plant after that fourth or fifth leaf pair. Such results to the plants that are smaller and also bushy without dominant main growth stem and they are also preferred than the smaller growrooms.
