Cannabis growers have traditionally used fluorescent lights to propagate their clones. But how do modern full-spectrum LED grow lights compare when cloning cannabis?
Stimulating hearty root growth is the most important part of successfully growing a cannabis clone from a cutting into a healthy plant. When you take a cutting from the branch of a healthy cannabis plant, hormonal signals get sent to the wound site, causing it to grow roots.
With proper care—and lighting—this clone can become a plant.
Humidity Levels in Cultivation Rooms
On the operational side, clone propagation rooms are the most humid of all cannabis cultivation environments, with ideal humidity levels hovering around 80 percent. Cultivation rooms need to be this humid because when a cutting is taken from a plant, the branch is deprived of the root zone that would naturally provide it with water. By keeping humidity levels high, the cuttings can absorb a significant amount of water from the ambient air during the early phases of clone propagation.
