The cannabis plant grows and flowers depending on the amounts of light it gets. In nature, it is an annually flowering plant that grows during the summer season and starts flowering when the days turn shorter.
When growing inside you can manipulate the plant’s lifecycle with the following basic light cycle:
- Give the plants 18-24 hours of light to keep it in vegetative state.
- Give the plants 12 hours of light to force it to start flowering.
