– Crescent moon:
It is the phase that takes place between the new Moon and the full Moon, it is well distinguished because it acquires the form of a letter D, increasing the internal activity of the plant, and it is not recommended to prune in this period.
– Full moon:
In this phase the moon is completely illuminated, and the sap rises to the upper parts of the plant, so pruning is not recommended, and is also perfect for germinating seeds.
– Dwindling Moon:
It is easily recognized by acquiring a very recognizable letter shape C, during this stage the sap lowers to the lower parts, and the soil is much more receptive, so it is perfect for fertilizing and watering. Planting, sowing or transplanting is not recommended when the moon is in the waning phase.
The elliptical movement of the moon makes it vary its distance from the earth, to see it you just have to look at an exact point at the same time, the next day you can see you looking at the same point, in the same space of time, if the moon has ascended or descended.
– Ascending Moon:
The liquids ascend, the sap rises to the upper parts of the plant, it is the perfect stage to cut the cuttings and prepare them.
– Descending Moon:
It’s the best moon phase to plant seeds. Liquids flow downward, increasing the activity of the underground part of the plant, so it’s a good time to do tasks with the roots, germinate seeds, or plant them. It is also a good time to do soil enrichment work.

If you harvest on a waning moon, the organoleptic properties are accentuated. In descending Moon, drying is faster and less problematic. In all cases it is recommended that the moon is passing through the constellations Air.
