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.
