You want the top of the plant getting light. Individual branches can flower. The lowers are not as important as tops though. Put lights on a pole above plants casting down and out.
2 hours in the middle of the night is good. Right in the middle of dark cycle. Midnight to 2am.
Yo CrushnYuba since you swear by vegging plants in a greenhouse Iím gonna try that this year. I got two 20x10 carports that I use to dry in and Iím gonna throw over greenhouse skin that I have. Iím gonna get a few more of those $7 solar led lights so I donít have to run a generator since Iím off grid. Got a few questions for you big dawg 🙌
1 - Should I run the lights all night long or only a cpl hours when the sun sets OR turn them on a cpl different times to interrupt the light cycle?
2 - Should I try an plant around mid May and use the solar ledís in each pot to get a cpl week jump on getting them in the ground? OR plant 3rd week of May OR just go for June 1? May 16, my bday : ) , sun comes up at 5:48 an goes down at 8:24 and the last pretty cold day (34 degrees) was on the 12th of May.
3 - You told me before to use fabric pots instead of the hard plastic ones I have(5 gallon). What size/gallon pots should I get if Iím gonna be getting clones with roots around mid April?
Thanks in advance homey
