To grow some great cannabis, all a person requires is some quality cannabis seeds, proper containers for the seeds, good soil, and LED grow lights, and you’re all ready to start off. Unlike other types of lights or bulbs, LED lights do not burn the filament. Instead, they help in creating a spectrum by passing the light through semiconductors.
Taking into consideration, in order to grow plants to their fullest potential, it is important to create various wavelengths with the light and this can only be done with the light that has the power to produce a full spectrum.
It is also considered that cannabis plants require more light than the other usual indoor plants. Once given proper exposure of high beam LED lights, they will grow smoothly and consistently.
As compared to the HID lights that were used by weed cultivators in previous decades, LED lights are advanced and have some impressive benefits. Not only do they use less electricity, but also lets a person save their money. Although LED lights take a bit more time, they emit less heat, unlike HID lights that are expensive and unaffordable for home growers.
Also, as the technology has become widespread, growing plants indoors with an impactful lighting system is a great opportunity for home growers to clean their indoor air quality. Along with that, many people like to grow indoors because it makes them feel good about the color, fragrance, and decoration of their house.
In this article, we have mentioned a few mistakes that growers can prevent from making to grow cannabis effectively.
Set The Light At Proper Distance
It is considered that most of the inexperienced growers are overly cautious regarding LED lights and their usage. They get confused between placing them too far or vice versa. However, the right way to set the light at a proper distance is to place it a little far in order to let the plant grow and over-stretch. As the plant grows, the light must be placed far each time.
On the other hand, if you setup LED grow lights too close to the cannabis plant, it will stress the plants and will prevent them from growing comfortably.
Overwatering The Cannabis
Unlike HID lights that emit a lot of heat and dry out the soil quickly, the plants placed in LED lights do not need a lot of watering as they receive less heat. The significant reduction in heat from these two lights often complicates the grower in providing the same amount of water to an LED plant that was once placed in HID light.
For this reason, a person must adjust their schedule according to the dryness of the plant’s soil. Along with this, the quantity of water will also be reduced if the plant has been switched to LED lighting from the HID lightning. This is certainly an important tip to take into consideration as overwatering the plant causes serious errors in growing. This also results in the development of pests and diseases.
