Marijuana grown indoors obviously needs water and nutrients to grow and thrive, but it’s imperative that growers also ensure plants are getting the proper amount of light.
Providing cannabis with optimum light enables plants to conduct photosynthesis efficiently and produce healthy, robust flower.
Cultivators can get a leg up in this area by perfecting techniques related to proper lighting such as pruning, plant arrangement, light levels and types of lighting.
“Lighting is critical to your success,” said Gord Kline, head of cultivation at High Street, a vertically integrated cannabis company based in Canfield, Ontario.
“It’s a combination of picking the right spacing, the right lighting, the right environmental controls and the right pruning,” he added.
