One of my coworkers told me that you could still grow flourishing marijuana plants with minimal or no light as long as you used the correct dosage of nitrogen. Is there any truth to this claim?
Green plants produce their food via photosynthesis. This is of course the process in which plants use light energy to build sugar from water and carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Nitrogen is then used to combine with the sugar to build the plant’s tissue. Without light, the plants will not be able to produce the sugars used to power respiration for energy and growth. Same goes for marijuana.
