Description: Once thinning is complete, seedlings are brought into the Rapid Growth Phase, in which they are forced into accelerated growth rates by supplying all the factors that are normally limiting. The type of growing environment will determine the cultural options that are available and the resultant growth rate. Fully-controlled environments have heating, ventilation, photoperiodic lighting, irrigation, fertilization, and even supplemental carbon dioxide.
