Photoperiod refers to the duration of light and darkness that a plant is exposed to within a 24-hour cycle. In the context of cannabis cultivation, photoperiod is a crucial factor in determining the plant's growth and flowering stages. Cannabis plants are considered either photoperiod-dependent or autoflowering. Photoperiod-dependent plants require a specific light cycle to trigger flowering, typically requiring a longer period of darkness. On the other hand, autoflowering plants transition to the flowering stage automatically based on their age, regardless of the light cycle. Proper understanding and control of photoperiod are essential for maximizing cannabis yields and achieving desired growth outcomes.
