Understand the Marijuana Grow Cycle
One way is to provide artificial lighting that “tricks” the plant into growing faster and more vigorously by exposing it to longer and/or more frequent light cycles. One also has to consider the marijuana grow cycle, from seedling to vegetative growth to flowering.
Cannabis Light Cycle: There’s an argument to be made when it comes to the cannabis light cycle, people are usually split on two sides. The first side believes that cannabis should be grown under 24 hours of light during the vegetative cycle and the second side believes that only 18 hours of light is required for optimum results. Studies have not been confirmed on this subject but the common belief is that 18 hours of light per day is the best way to grow your cannabis plant(s) because alternating with light-no-light cycle gives the plant(s) some time to rest in between for a bit, just as nature intended.
During flowering, there isn’t much argument to how long the light(s) need to be on, the most accepted answer by most growers is 12 hours of light per day; although, there is one exception which is when auto-flowering plants are grown it’s best to give them the highest number of hours of light per day.
