Setting up lights for growing cannabis is the most difficult task. If the light is not set up properly, your plant won’t grow. Here are some tips for setting up lights for growing your cannabis.
Place same sized plants together
You should never put different sized plants under the same light. Otherwise, the plants won’t get sufficient light and they won’t grow up to the proper length.
Equal distribution of light
The distribution of light must be equal. You should use a light meter to check it. Change the location of your lamp unless you get equal distribution. If you use extra light, make sure that the temperature is not that high. Excessive heat can destroy the growing tips of the plants.
Consider horizontal and vertical reflectors
You can use either horizontal or vertical reflector. You should remember that the vertical reflectors focus light in a larger area. On the other hand, the horizontal reflector gives off more light than the vertical reflectors.
Hang both high output and low output light
You should hang a full spectrum high output HPS or LED light on top of the plants. A blue spectrum low output light must be placed on the sides. The high output light helps to feed the plant and grow it faster. You will get thick plants by having the supplementary light on the sides. Otherwise, the plant will grow thin and tall.
You can learn more about the light setup from various books related to cannabis production. You should set up the right using the proper technique so that your cannabis can grow into a healthy plant.
