What are the characteristics of the Vegetative stage?
|VEGETATION||WHAT YOU WILL SEE|
|Growth||Steady growth during the period.|
Make sur to cut the branches that won’t get enough light as the plant grows.
Better to have a few strong branches than a bunch of week ones
|Branch and leaf density||In sequence she will produce 2 new leaves, 2 new branches|
|Humidity||Going down over time, it should start at around 65/70% humidity, ending around 50%|
|Temperature||Really during her whole life you should aim around between 19°C and 25°C|
I know, I know, not easy sometimes….
During this stage you will need to give her mainly Nitrogen.
Phosphorous and Potassium are 2 other vital nutrients for her grow, but we’ll go over that in detail further below.
|Keep about 18hours of light and 6 hours of night|
|Length in time||As long as you want or your plant is vegged out. As long as you don’t switch the length of light exposure they will stay in this mode|
During this stage you must make sure to give the plant enough Nitrogen nutrients.
In order to get the right measure you really have to test and learn with the strain you have, although I have found that going a little under the dosage given in the bottle works out pretty well.
Quick Warning : After the stretch the plan reduces its intake of nitrogen, making it real difficult to fight nitrogen deficiencies during the flowering stage.
I’m not saying go all out on Nitrogen!! Get hit with nutrient burn or Nitrogen toxicity and you’ve got a whole other set of issues on your hand!
