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. Also, you will have to consider the number of days of growing those plants are placed into flowering as well as the optimization of such climatic conditions of such grow-room.
There has been an increase in the popularity of growing cannabis indoors. When such is done right, then this is going to produce great quality which is often much better than getting sold on streets. You have to know that growing such cannabis indoors actually depend on the use of such powerful artificial lights to imitate the effect of the sun. These lights would take hundreds of Watts of electricity to operate and are usually HPS lights but the other kinds of lights are also great when it comes to growing the marijuana buds.
Actually, the cannabis would love light and successful indoor grower would actually try to deliver as much light as it can. You should have 250 watts/m2 being the minimum starting point and opt for 2 to 3 times such level when you are able to . If there is more light, then there will be denser and bigger buds and you can also enjoy superior yields. You have to remember that delivering high light could level the successful indoor grower to keep the plants near the light and maximize the light intensity and reach the leaves and the buds. For the medical or recreational grower, having that growing area of 1 – 2 square meters can have 400W or 600W HPS lamp.
Indoor cannabis grower should be careful that the plant won’t grow really near to the hot light and damage itself. 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 the indoor growers would train their plants in this manner to get as much of the plant as possible close to such high intensity light.
Certain strains would respond quite well by pinching out such growing tip of the plant after the 4th or the 5th leaf pair. This would result to plants which are smaller and bushy with no dominant main growth stem and they are preferred for those smaller growrooms.
