Some information on grow lights:

  • LEDs (light-emitting diodes) create light when an electric current — a flow of electrons — passes through a special material called a semiconductor. NASA pioneered the use of LEDs for growing plants as a result of their research on the best lighting technology to produce edible crops in space. LEDs are the most energy-efficient type of grow light. This means they can provide the most light compared to their running costs. (amount of light generated vs. watts needed) Due to this ratio, another advantage of LED lights is that they run much cooler compared to HID lighting - barely producing any heat at all.
  • HID GROW LIGHTS (MH & HPS) HID (High-intensity Discharge) grow lights are somewhat of a golden standard in the cannabis growing industry. Many growers swear by HID lighting and believe that they give the best and biggest yields. There are two main types of HID lights, MH (Metal Halide) lights and HPS (High Pressure Sodium) lights. The difference between the two is that MH lights give a “cooler”, blueish light whereas HPS lights sit at the red end of the spectrum. This makes MH lights better suitable for the vegetative phase of your plants and HPS better for flowering.

Clone vs Seed

What is Cloning?

Clones are rooted cuttings that are genetically identical to the plant they were taken from. Through cloning, you can create a new harvest with exact replicas of your best performing plants.

Clones available. Please inquire by phone or email.

Growing from Seed.

Cannabis plants grown from seed produce a taproot. Cloned plants simply cannot; they produce a fibrous root system only. Taproots firmly anchor the plant into the ground, extending into the soil to find nutrients. Most outdoor plants are grown from seed for this reason.
