Light Deprivation Question?

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Outdoors' started by WildRoseToker, Jul 18, 2019.

  1. I have been covering the plants on my balcony for the past 5 weeks. The buds are almost nickel sized. Do I need to keep doing the light deprivation till harvest? Due to streetlights and being on a busy road it never gets very dark. I am at 51°N.
  2. I would just to be sure. Next run do half and half and see just how much coverage you do or do NOT need.
    I've got 2 spots in my yard the streetlight out front shines into the backyard and has messed up the plants in that zone. Took a couple of grows to be sure that was what it was and not the strain.

    They don't need full dark, for example the full moon isn't enough. Needs about 3x that much to actually trip them to veg or hold them in same.

  3. At 51°N you're getting about 16 hours of daylight now so you'll probably need to cover them for awhile. I'm surprised that worked.
