What are generative plants?

Plants that spend most energy in fruit growth are called ‘generative’ . Vegetative plants don’t carry enough fruit to achieve a high production. Generative plants underperform because they have insufficient leaf area to manufacture enough sugars to fill the growing fruit.

What is the difference between the vegetative and generative stages of plant growth?

There are two grow phases: vegetative and generative. Vegetative growth is where plants establish themselves with more leaves, top growth and longer roots. Generative growth is where plants produce flowers and fruits.

What is vegetative stage of a plant?

The period of growth between germination and flowering is known as the vegetative phase of plant development. During the vegetative phase, plants are busy carrying out photosynthesis and accumulating resources that will be needed for flowering and reproduction.

What is generative steering?

Growers use generative steering to initiate the flowering cycle with the change in photoperiod. Once flowers have set, and after around the first defoliation, they will switch to a vegetative strategy to keep the plant healthy and increase the bulking of flowers.

What are the three stages of growth in plants?

Phases of Growth in Plants There are three phases of growth – meristematic, elongation and maturation.

Does Rockwool wick water?

ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation does not wick water, which means that any bulk water that contacts the outer surface will drain and not be absorbed into the body of the insulation.

What is VPD chart?

A Vapor Pressure Deficit, or VPD Chart is a proven tool that can maximize your desired results when growing in a controlled environment. Our vapor chart suggests optimal ranges to run your plants during the different stages of growth.
