How much light does my cannabis plant need? - 420 Guide for Beginners When you are growing indoors, you provide the light. Vegetative stage, you’ll manipulate the light from cannabis grow lights, so there is a minimum of 18 hours of light per day — some growers prefer to go as high as 24 hours a day. But there’s a catch: It is not really the light that makes much of a difference in your plants’ life cycle, but rather the darkness . The length of time your plants are exposed to uninterrupted periods of darkness will signal to them to stay in the vegetative stage or to go into their flowering stage. Flowering State Once the flowering stage of the marijuana plant gets going, this is when it will start to bud and grow flowers. In other words, this is when those sticky icky buds start growing. During this stage, the plant will not grow quite as much in height anymore as during the vegetative state. Yes, it will still grow, but not nearly as much as during the vegetative state. However, as the buds begin to form and grow, you will notice your marijuana plant filling out and getting wider, which is because of the weight and growth of the actual buds, what you are going to dry and smoke. Most of the THC content or potency of your weed will be developed during the few final weeks of the flowering stage. This is also a very important stage, because how you treat your plant here will go a long way in determining the size, flavor, and potency of the weed itself. Marijuana plants have an internal process that allows them to detect how long they receive darkness each night. This is because they are a "photo-period" plant, specifically a "short-day" plant which means these plants start making flowers/buds when days start getting short. When growing marijuana outdoors, a grower doesn't need to do anything to induce flowering because the sun will take care of things on its own. It's just important to make sure that there are no lights shining on your plants during their night period (which will disrupt their dark cyle). However, when growing weed indoors, a marijuana gardener will have to fool their plants into "thinking" winter is coming to induce flowering and kickstart the creation


of buds. This is done by changing the plant's light schedule to 12-12, where the weed plants gets 12 hours of light a day and 12 hours of total darkness.
