A different color spectrum can change how cannabis germinates, grows and even makes buds! Although we don’t have a lot of options to change the spectrum of sunlight when growing outdoors, we have almost complete control of the spectrum when growing cannabis indoors since we’re using grow lights.
Blue help keep young plants from growing tall and lanky, and encourages lots of leafy growth. This colour light also aids in directional growth as the plant needs blue light to know where the light actually is and grow towards it.
Green light has been shown to be involved in seedling and vegetative development, the initiation of the flowering stage, CO2/water usage, stem growth and overall plant height.
When it comes to photosynthesis, plants are best able to make energy out of red light. Red light also tells the plant when it is coming into the day/night cycle.
This allows the Element to achieve rapid growth with less energy consumption.
