Hemp Growing Techniques: How to Improve Final Hemp Yield Before Flowering

Ⅰ. Increase the light intensity of cannabis growing lights to brighten cannabis

Install better cannabis growing lights.

It is very important to keep cannabis growing lights as close as possible without overloading the plants.

Trim new buds so they develop horizontally in the light. Pruning during growth allows the plant to keep the light as close as possible without causing the highest leaf glare to burn.

When the cannabis is surrounded by vegetation, it actively responds, trying to get taller for better lighting.

Ⅱ. Choose cannabis growing lights suitable for flowering during the flowering period

For optimal yield, density, and bud size, high-quality cannabis LED grow lights should be used while the buds are forming.

Ⅲ. Provide the correct cannabis grow light spectrum during bud formation

1. Using LED grow lights with more red light of different wavelengths during the flowering period will be more effective than using cannabis growing lights with more blue light

Choose a cannabis LED grow light that contains the following diodes: White; Red; Far Red (infrared wavelengths);

Cannabis plants grown under the 480W GLMX480 Cannabis LED Grow Light look very attractive.

Cannabis growing lights generally need to be kept at least 40cm above the plant to prevent bleaching and burns.

2. Follow the recommended defoliation schedule for cannabis defoliation

Most growers use targeted, strategic leaf removal to maximize their yields. The term refers to the process of removing specific leaves at specific points in shoot development.

In effect, it "disrupts" the plant's natural processes and makes the buds larger and denser than normal. This technique is most effective on cannabis seedlings of varieties with increased green mass.

Conversely, if your plants don't have many leaves, falling leaves will slow growth, so don't overdo it with this operation.

3. Optimizing environmental factors for cannabis growth

Several key factors need to be kept in mind. They are mainly related to the microclimate of the growth room/grow box during the flowering stage.

Temperature - Keep the temperature between +18°C and +26°C as much as possible. Elevated temperatures are associated with loose or "airy" cannabis sprouts, weaker bud smell, reduced immunity, mold formation, insect infestation (especially if the buds are also wet).

Humidity - Don't let the environment get too humid after the shoots start to develop. High humidity can cause mold attack and bud rot, and it can also inhibit bud growth. High/large density (high humidity makes it difficult to efficiently transport water through key plant nodes).

Particularity - Prevents light loss when the interior of the farmhouse has reflective walls.

Air circulation - In addition to maintaining the correct temperature and humidity, plant breezes and plenty of fresh air are also important. Effective air circulation prevents many problems and accelerates cannabis growth, thereby increasing overall yield.

4. Harvest in time

Most importantly, don't start harvesting too early! Be aware of this argument: Cannabis buds gain significant weight under grow lights during the last two weeks before peak ripening.

Even if you harvest a few weeks early, you can halve the final harvest, and the planted cannabis plant is ready for harvest when most of the white hairs on the buds have turned black and curled.

Experienced growers will often examine the sparkling trichomes under a magnifying glass to ensure proper harvest timing.
