@treedawg , hocus pocus voodoo stuff you bringing to the table. Well that was what I thought up and until several years ago. It makes absolute common sense, and I have met some unreal gardeners that swear by the theory. I battle to stay on top of it and would love to integrate planting by moon phases. The thing that blew my mind is when I connected the dots and realised how important the moon was shifting the oceans tides. Never done it though, but enjoy the full moon phases out here.

The moon has a direct impact on all beings, by paying attention to the phases of the moon you can take advantage to improve plant growth outdoors.

Even though a real study has not been done on this subject, we all know that the moon affects tidal activity, and plants are mostly water so read on and learn all you need about cannabis and the moon. Now you must be asking yourself does moonlight affect flowering? Read along and find out!

1. The Moon cycles

The movement of the moon makes its distance from the earth vary, to be able to see this, you should be at an exact point and the next day at the same exact point you’ll be able to see if the moon is ascending or descending.

Ascending moon

When the moon is ascending, the sap rises to the upper parts of the plant and it’s the best time to cut clones off your cannabis plant.

You should also avoid harvesting because the buds will be full of liquid and, as you may know, cannabis buds need to be dried so this can end affecting the drying process. More reading
