Plant Ecology (Plant, Nurture, Harvest)
Plants have 2 distinct stages; vegetation and flowering. Plants have 3 needs – water, sunlight, and nutrients. Each strain has requirements and tolerances for each of its needs, making some strains easier to grow and others more picky, fragile. Plants grow the fastest and produce the most buds when their needs are kept in the ideal range. When a plant’s needs fall outside of tolerance it will start to become stressed. Accumulated stress will reduce the plants health. Unhealthy plants grow slower and produce less bud.
