Listen up UK growers, this current snap of freezing cold weather could be seriously damaging the potential yield of your crop/plants.
Most of you know that hot temperatures are not good for your plants. What some of us forget is that COLD temperatures can be equally damaging, or in some cases more, than the excessively hot temperatures we all worry about in summer.
When a plant is exposed to temperatures below 17 degrees the plant can go into shutdown mode, protecting itself from dying. Once it’s done this it can take 2-5 days of perfect conditions to pull itself out of what I refer to as a “lock out”.
If your plants are being subjected to cold temperatures then every time your lights turn off I guarantee this is going to have a NEGATIVE affect on your YIELD.
So what can you do to prevent this?
