In Northern California, the cannabis growth business is on the rise and is certainly here to stay. It’s not when to strike, as it’s proven to be lucrative, but how. Do you choose an indoor or outdoor grow space? There are pros and cons to either option. In an outdoor grow area, you are less likely to be limited by space, but you may be limited by your environment: an early frost, nosy neighbors, pests and more. Indoor grow rooms, albeit pricier, allow for complete climate control. Indoor grow space, when done correctly, also leads to high-quality yields.
Systems & Space understands high quality and has helped many Northern California marijuana grow rooms maximize their space so they can focus on what matters: results. Whether you’re creating, renovating or expanding your space, here are a few efficiency tips to ensure you’re getting the most out of your indoor grow room.
Choose the right light
The most common lighting options in indoor grow rooms are high-intensity discharge (HID) and LED lights. HIDs will save you money upfront, but LEDs will save you money over time as they cut down on long-term electricity costs. They emit very little heat and will minimally affect the climate of your grow room. Currently utilizing fluorescents in your grow room? No problem. Most LED bulbs are compatible with fluorescent fixtures.
Systems & Space’s GROW Mobile System is designed specifically for indoor marijuana grow rooms and with light limitations in mind. Waterfall wire decking on the top tier allows light from ceiling-mounted fixtures to reach plants at every level, ensuring uniform, high-quality results at every level.
In an indoor grow room, every single inch matters. The GROW Mobile System is a vertical, movable, configurable growing system that minimizes wasted space both vertically and horizontally. The stacked shelving allows for multiple levels of growing area, while the carriage-and-rail system reduces wasted aisle space. The system is constructed of heavy-duty 14-gauge steel and engineered to extend up to 30 feet tall, utilizing your space from floor to ceiling.
Expanding your current space? Looking to renovate? Consider the GROW mobile system. It will help free up existing space in your current grow room and set you up for a more organized and efficient system in your new or updated space.
Don’t forget to flush
As every grower knows, flushing is important. Fertilizer causes salt build-up and can in turn damage your yields if proper flushing isn’t applied. Flushing regularly and thoroughly will lead to a lot of water in your grow room. The GROW Mobile system frees up space in your aisles, allowing water build-up to make its way to your drainage systems thus ensuring air humidity remains consistent.
A safe indoor grow room is an efficient one. The GROW Mobile system maximizes and organizes your existing space, making it easier for workers to safely and easily reach your yields. It is outfitted with anti-tip rails, safety locks, welded uprights, and offers a mechanical-assist handle so your workers can reach the aisles they need without fear of tripping, causing damage to themselves or to your plants.
