Trellising the Cannabis Grow

Posted by Celia Daly on Jul 16, 2015 7:33:56 AM

Many Cannabis genetics naturally grow tall, with a similar appearance to pine trees, with one large bud on top and a smaller cola on the end of each branch. This growing method is successful outdoors because the sun moves across the sky throughout the day, allowing each branch (and bud)  to receive light. However, when growing indoors, and to a lesser extent in greenhouses, this does not happen because the lights are stationary above the plants, never fully lighting the sides. Additionally, when growing indoors, it is important to keep the plant canopy as even as possible due to diminishing light intensity as the flowers get further from the light source (see: Inverse Square Law); this is not a problem with sun-grown cannabis as the sun is so far away that a few extra feet doesn’t make as much of a difference.
