Light is definitely one of the most important factors during their growth, but darkness also indispensable for plants, like human, they also need rest. During the day, plants absorbed the light for photosynthesis to produce energy. At night, plants will break the energy down for growth and flowering.
It’s time to transplant the plants when they have passed the seedling stage and are beginning to enter the vegetative phase of the grow cycle.
Usually when the plants need watering much more frequently than it usually does. It will also probably start to display symptoms,such as completely stunted growth. The leaves may begin to turn yellow and wilt.
With the blooming of indoor growing, more and more lamps come to the market, HPS, HID, LED etc. So what lamps we should choose.
Some people would like the HPS, why? Because HPS are cheaper than LED, and can also grow some dense buds. But we have to admitted that HPS will cost more energy and generate more heat during working.
1 Transplant will actuate the growth of the plants
Usually growers will start the plants in a relatively container,they will grow faster than you start with a big/final container.This is because their root system can get the right mixture of air and water.
So when the plants grow up,you need to transplant them into a relatively bigger container,to ensure their roots have enough of space to expand,otherwise,they will form a “wall” around the container.
2 Transplant will help to prevent root-bound
How to choose right led grow light
Light is one of the important factors for plants growing, choosing right led grow light will help you get great yields. But now there are some Led Grow Light in the market, so How to choose right led grow light?
There are some aspects help you choose right LED grow lights:
Phosphorus is an essential nutrient that it’s very important during flowering. It also helps with root and stem growth. It allows your plant to perform photosynthesis or convert light into energy.
It assists at the beginning of your plant’s life during the germination phase and also is useful during your plant’s reproductive phase.
Signs of Phosphorus Deficiency
· Leaves turn to a blue-green color
· Lower leaves turn yellow and brown
· Stem can turn a purple color
· Leaves have blotches of brown or blue
· Slow growth
· Affected leaves start to curl
· Lower leaves begin to die
1.) Adjust pH to Correct Range
·In soil, phosphorus is best absorbed by the roots in the 6.2 - 7.0 pH
The tobacco mosaic virus is very fatal for many plants, like tomato, pepper, eggplant, tobacco, spinach... adnd the virus infection causes light and dark green mottled areas on the leaves. The dark green areas tend to be somewhat thicker than the lighter portions of the leaf. The leaf mottling is seen more easily if the affected plant surface is partially shaded. Stunting of young plants is common and often is accompanied by a distortion and fern-like appearance of the leaves. Older leaves curl downward and may be slightly distorted. Certain strains of the virus can cause a mottling, streaking and necrosis of the buds. Infected plants are not killed, but they produce poor quality buds and low yields.
Solution - Virus diseases cannot be controlled once the plant is infected. Therefore, every effort should be made to prevent introduction of virus diseases into the g
Spider mites are not insects but are more closely related to spiders. Most spider mites have the ability to produce a fine silk webbing. They have tiny mouthparts modified for piercing individual plant cells and removing the contents. This results in tiny yellow or white speckles. When many of these feeding spots occur near each other, the foliage takes on a yellow or bronzed cast. Once the foliage of a plant becomes bronzed, it often drops prematurely. Heavily infested plants may be discolored, stunted or even killed. Web producing spider mites may coat the foliage with the fine silk which collects dust and looks dirty.
Early detection of s
Plants is very sensitive to temperature, no matter indoor grow or outdoor grow, when the temps are so high, low humidity or light too close the plants, the plants will have heat stress problem.
Sign of Heat Stress
Plants leaves will become yellow or brown spot, When the heats gets too high, the edges of the serrated leaves will begin to curl up and the leaves will begin to “cup”
