You must understand that choosing a variety is quite important when it comes to growing marijuana. The quantity and yields of those plants which are being grown under the artificial lights would actually depend on the variety of the seed or if the plants are being grown from the clones or seeds. Also, you can consider the length of time in growing the plants are put into flowering as well as optimization of such climatic conditions in the growroom.
Growing cannabis indoors has definitely seen a huge rise in popularity in the present years. If done right, such would produce fantastic quality that is often a lot better than being sold on the streets. You have to know as well that growing cannabis indoors would depend on the use of those powerful artificial lights in order to replicate the sun’s effect. These lights actually take hundreds of Watts of electricity to work and they are often HPS lights however the other types of lights are quite fantastic when growing those marijuana buds.
Actually, the cannabis would love light and successful indoor grower would actually try to deliver as much light as it can. You need to have 250 watts/m2 being the minimum starting point and aim for two to three times that level when you can. If there is more light, then there will be denser and bigger buds and you can also enjoy superior yields. Keep in mind that delivering high light would level the successful indoor grower would keep the plants close to the light as possible so that it can maximize the light intensity reaching those buds and leaves.

Some of the indoor growers would train their plants in this manner to get as much of the plant as possible close to such high intensity light.
Some strains would really respond better through pinching out the growing tip of such plant after the fourth or the fifth leaf pair. This would result to plants which are smaller and bushy with no dominant main growth stem and they are preferred for those smaller growrooms.
