In certain respects no expense should be spared if we want a good harvest and purchase quality seeds and fertilizers or substrates to provide us with minimum guarantees to ensure that the growing process is carried out under optimum conditions. However, you can save by following a few simple tips.

There are methods with which experts farmers say saving light (much to consider with the rates that utilities put us today). There is a method by which you can have the light on fewer hours (up to 6 hours less) and get good results. This would involve giving the plant 12 hours of light in the vegetative phase (instead of 18 hours) and then turn off the lamp five hours and a half to turn them back on after one hour and have them other five and a half hours off. Experts say that, besides saving light, marijuana grows much more than applying more light. Having a timer is a good option to avoid having to keep an eye on the lights turn off and on ourselves.

In the flowering stage, lighted lamps between 11 and 9 hours (shorter hours the last two weeks of flowering) and the remaining hours up to 24 hours will be maintained, will remain off.

Saving Systems

There are also devices that limit the amount of electricity, called ballasts. If you use electronic ballasts instead of magnetic’ll save a good peak electricity also such devices extend the lamp life and provide up to 30% more light. At Piensa En Verde we suggest the Electronic Ballast Agrolite that extends the life of the bulbs and reduces heat emissions and  power consumption.

And, the ‘does not go’ is the digital ballast, the Quantum, for example, will allow you to save energy at all times because it incorporates a power regulator to adjust the amount of light needed for each stage of cultivation. It makes the farmer less energy. As they grow plants need more light, so you can go by regulating light from the light ballast and increase depending on the growth phase they are, each month this becomes a considerable saving in electricity bill.

Saving the LED lamps

By now, almost everyone knows that type LED lights serve to save energy. This type of lamp or lamps produce light by passing current through a semi-conductive material (rather than burning a filament, such as ordinary light bulbs). This causes electrons to move and produce light, without losing energy as heat, as with bulbs lifetime. At PEV Grow we provide a number of type LED lamps, so you can save. For example, Orion LEDs, in which one of its main advantages is that the diodes do not lose energy to produce heat, and thus the LEDs have a very high use of energy.

This type of lamps are used for the growth phase and the flowering stage.

Another lighting systems with which you save in your indoor growing is using Led Illumitex 50w, with this lamp Led not only significantly reduces energy consumption, but the plants grow healthier by the uniformity of light.

However, here, as elsewhere, you do not risk too much if you are a neophyte in the cultivation of marijuana. Experience and share your concerns with a trusted expert will help you along your crops to acquire the skills to save a little more each time. In Piensa En Verde also we attend your doubts and your questions through email and also through our phones.

It’s about time to keep trying the tips we encounter us along the way. Sure, we ourselves little by little, we find the tricks that make we save some cash in the coming harvests.
