Above all, make sure there is never more than an 18 degree Fahrenheit difference between day and night temperatures. For example, if the temperature is 72 degrees during the day, it should not go below 54 degrees at night. Also, use the lower end of the temperature scales above if you live in an area of high humidity.

After years of trial and error, it has been determined that you need 400 Watts of light during the vegetative stage and 600 Watts during the flowering stage for every 13 square feet of growth. If you’re concerned about the energy cost, purchase fluorescent lighting to save money.

Your marijuana plants require CO2 for photosynthesis. More is better as far as carbon dioxide is concerned because an increased amount boosts growth. It is also essential to add extra CO2 when increasing the intensity of the lighting. For reference, the air we breathe contains 350-400 parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide. Your plants use the CO2 and combine it with light to create the sugars that are pivotal to their growth.

3 – Temperature & Humidity Settings

Keep an eye on your plants during the growing season. Increase your feeding schedule if the plants have light green leaves. Cut it back if the leaves have brown edges and its tips start to curl back. Home growers can also add compost tea to plants to aid bud growth.

4 – Lighting

For the record, the ideal scenario would include the following:

During the flowering stage, switch your focus to phosphorus. Aim for an NPK ratio of 1:3:1. A good option here is to mix wood ash with water as it contains a high phosphorus content.

Good drainage – Soil or coco should not seem muddy, dense, or thick. Water should be able to drain freely from the bottom of the pot (if there aren’t any drainage holes, you need to add some yourself). Learn about growing in soil or coco.

You can also give plants too much light. Powerful grow lights cause stress and can slow down plants if they’re kept too close.

CMH/LEC – Each model is a bit different, so refer to the specifications from the manufacturer to determine the best light distance to plants. CMH bulbs often need to be kept further away than MH/HPS bulbs of the same wattage. CMH grow lights (also known as LEC) also have two different spectrum bulbs that can be used. The 4000k/4100k bulb (more blue) produces some of the fastest vegetative growth I’ve seen of any grow light. It’s kind of astounding. The one downside is vegetative plants do grow a little taller/stretchier under CMH than under an MH or many LEDs. The 3100k (more red) CMH bulb performs similarly to an HPS, so try to avoid it during the vegetative stage if possible.

6.) Genetics & Natural Variation

Unhappy roots = Unhappy plants

LEDs

1.) Grow Light

The most common cause of unhappy roots is overwatering, especially for seedlings and young plants. Overwatering is typically the result of giving too much water at a time, or watering too often.

*What is an LED “T5” grow light? It’s basically an LED grow light in the shape of a traditional T5. The term “T5″ is based on the width of the fluorescent bulb (5/8”) so labeling an LED grow light as a “T5” is just a marketing gimmick. From what I’ve seen, some brands work well, others not so much, just like regular LED grow lights.
