Take a look into our Showcase event in Ithaca, NY!
Look at the progress of our plants below over the course of a few weeks, with minimal artificial lighting involved.
You can see that the plants are just about finished in the vegetative state, and will soon be put into a 12-hour light cycle to trip them into flowering.
Terrific growth. In their 18-hour vegetative light cycle, the artificial lights are only being used for half of that time, 9 hours. The other 9 hours is 100% photosynthesis being driven by the sun. And we are still in April!
These photos, from April 20th, show the plants stabilizing after being transplanted.
These earliest photos, taken within a week of being transplanted, show the plants still scraggly and in a state of stasis as they adjust to the shock of being transplanted.
