You’ve heard us say time and time again, “You have to get the right light for the right job.” You know that if you get a light that’s too strong for your plant the plant will fry, but have you ever wondered what happens to a plant when you use a light that’s not strong enough? One of two things:
1) If your light isn’t strong enough it won’t be able to properly photosynthesize the nutrients you give it, thus your plant won’t be able to absorb them and create new parts of your plant. That means even if your plant is able to grow branches, they won’t be able to make a lot of flowering sites. Without flowering sites you won’t get a yield, and with no possible yield there’s really no point in continuing that plant unless you can use what you grow.
2) Say your plant can create what it needs to start producing fruit: anything your plant produces won’t be of good quality. Remember that branches, leaves, and flowering sites all need to thrive if you’re going to get a quality yield. If all the factors that make flowers and your yield except a strong enough light to really kick those plants in to gear, whatever you end up harvesting will probably not have the qualities you’re looking for.
That’s not to say that you can’t grow with soft lights (how do you think people grow and harvest medical plants with only T5’s?), but just because a plant will grow to harvest doesn’t mean that harvest will be of the best quality. By all means, we encourage growers to use that they have available to them, but we’d be lying if we said you could expect the same yield between a 100w and a 400w light. (Photo: GrowMJEasy)
