Vegetative Stage: Continue the 18-24 hour light cycle using LED or T5 fluorescent lights. These lights deliver the perfect spectrum for robust growth.
Flowering Stage: As your cannabis plants transition into the flowering stage, switch to a 12-hour light cycle and 12 hours of darkness. High-Intensity Discharge (HID) lights like HPS or specialized LED grow lights optimized for flowering will maximize your yields.

Nutrient Feeding: Coco coir is naturally inert, so you’ll need to provide nutrients. Use cannabis-specific nutrient solution
Vegetative Stage: Prioritize nitrogen (N) for lush foliage and stem growth.
Flowering Stage: Shift to higher phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) to nurture bud development. Proper nutrient balance at each stage ensures a thriving cannabis plant and a bountiful harvest.
Watering routine: Keep an eye on moisture levels, watering when the coir surface feels slightly dry about an inch deep. Consistency is key; avoid letting it dry out completely.
