Lighting, Temperature, and Humidity Control. How to set it up for cannabis? 

Proper lighting, temperature, and humidity control are essential for growing healthy cannabis plants. Here are some general guidelines on how to set up these factors: 

1.  Lighting: Cannabis plants require a lot of light to grow properly. For indoor growing, you’ll want to use high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps, such as metal halide (MH) and high-pressure sodium (HPS) bulbs. LED grow lights are also an option. Your plants will need between 18-24 hours of light per day during the vegetative stage and 12 hours of light per day during the flowering stage. 

2.  Temperature: Cannabis plants grow best in temperatures between 68-77°F (20-25°C) during the day and 62-72°F (16-22°C) at night. If temperatures get too high, your plants may suffer from heat stress and their growth may slow down or stop. If temperatures get too low, your plants may become susceptible to disease and other issues. 

3.  Humidity: During the vegetative stage, cannabis plants prefer humidity levels between 40-70%. During the flowering stage, it’s best to keep humidity levels between 40-50% to prevent mold and mildew growth. High humidity levels can also cause problems with nutrient uptake and pest infestations. 

To control these factors, you’ll need to invest in some equipment, such as a thermometer, hygrometer, and grow lights. You may also want to consider using a dehumidifier and/or humidifier to control humidity levels, as well as an air conditioning or heating system to maintain proper temperatures. Additionally, it’s important to monitor your plants regularly and make adjustments as needed to ensure optimal growing conditions.
