Once the young crop has become accustomed to the climate, the vegetative climate settings can be adjusted to increase the surface area of the foliage to enable the crop to absorb the maximum amount of light. The 24-hour temperature and air humidity play an essential role in vegetative growth, whereby the right balance must be achieved between the sturdiness and volume of the plant. The first flower development is possible once the crop has reached the required volume in relation to the available amount of light. Depending on the circumstances, this is achieved through steering towards generative growth. The climate will need to be adjusted in good time to promote the uptake of sufficient water and nutrients by the plant. This phase continues until the flower development increases rapidly.

The root system needs to be distributed evenly throughout the volume of the substrate if the plant is to make optimum use of the substrate. This can be achieved by controlled watering to ensure that the roots search for water and nutrients in the substrate. The drainage percentages must however be high enough to be able to provide the plants with fresh nutrients. The vegetative or generative control of the development of the plant also plays an important role. The volume of the roots needs to be as large as possible, since this determines the success of the cultivation of the crop.
