The moonlight intensity during ‘waxing’ influences the growth of the plant as it stimulates leaf growth while ‘waning’ of the moon helps in developing root growth and strengthening below ground. The waxing and waning phases of the moon are divided into the four quarters representing the shapes of the moon at those times which are crescent, gibbous, disseminating and balsamic. These moon shapes majorly signify periods to carry out certain actions on your plant like the planting of your seeds, feeding of your plants with more nutrients, ripening, and harvesting and finally, destroying and clearing of weeds in preparation for another round of planting. However, it is important to keep in mind that calculation is best done with your moon calendar for accuracy.
