 Lighting – Its importance in candy cane auto flower growth

 Light is important for the growth of the candy cane plants. You already know that light is essential for the growth of a plant. Why? Because light is an important element in the process of photosynthesis. Plants get the energy to grow and bear flowers and fruits only through the process of photosynthesis. This applies to candy cane auto flower too. But, when it comes to tips to maximize the growth, lights of different kinds are required in different stages of plant growth. Let us consider them here.

You might be aware that you can choose to provide indoor lighting for your candy cane auto flower plant. This will help you use the lights that are suitable for different phases of growth. For instance, you can choose to use a blue light fixture to seed the pre-flowering phase. This light is almost similar to the light from the sun in summer. This will help in the growth of plant stalks and leaves.

Fixtures that emit yellow to orange light are ideal for the flowering phase. This will improve the production of buds. Also, you can provide the plants with longer light hours. This prolonged exposure of the plant to light helps improve bud production during the flowering period.


The roots of the candy cane plant require oxygen to grow. The soil supplies this. However, to ensure a steady supply of oxygen during the growth period and after that, you can consider using an aeration conditioner. This will help in creating spaces within the compact soil. Then the air will move freely around the medium. Next, space will allow the extra water that you pour for the plant to drain down. This will prevent the plant from drowning due to much water in the soil. The conditioners you can use include rock, vermiculite, perlite, or wool.


 Low-stress training (LST) is considered an effective method to promote the horizontal growth of stalks and branches. This is indeed essential to make sure that the plant distributes its energy to its side branches instead of having just one top stalk that produces multiple colas. However, if you choose to use other methods like topping, one-two weeks of recovery time is required.


Nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus are required for the biological processes of the plant. It is required throughout the entire growth will boost the metabolism of the plant and ensure the production of buds. However, nitrogen-rich fertilizers should be used during the vegetative phase, while phosphorus and potassium-rich ones are ideal for flowering plants. Alternatively, you can use compost and team it up with fertilizers only when necessary.
