With cannabis becoming legal in various states in the US, you might be thinking about starting your own cannabis grow operation. Well, if you want to become successful, here are some useful cannabis grow operation tips to consider.
1. Clean Environment
Create and maintain a clean environment for your cannabis crops. Avoid wearing outside shoes or clothes in cannabis grow rooms. Wash your hands properly when you enter or exit the grow room. The floors should be swept routinely and free of any debris. Make sure the light fixtures, HVAC systems and fans are clean and dust-free. With a clean and sanitized environment, your cannabis crops should grow healthy.
2. Excellent Nutrient Supplier
Do your homework when you are looking for a good nutrient supplier for your cannabis grow operation. Find out the purity levels, manufacturing practices, ingredient sourcing, shipping and storage practices. Choose a nutrient supplier who relies on the highest quality inputs and provides consistent solutions.
When looking for nutrients, don’t rely on the price point alone. Check the ingredients inputs, the company’s track record and reputation. Don’t choose a specific nutrient line specifically because of their prices without further research.
3. Proper Mixing And Application Of Nutrients And Supplements
If you want a successful cannabis crop, you need to mix and apply nutrients and supplements correctly. Remember, if not done correctly, you are creating a perfect environment for bad bacteria that might be harmful to humans. Be careful about what you use on the plants to ensure the best results.
4. Diagnose Problems As They Happen
If your cannabis plants appear stressed, there might be something affecting the performance of your crops. It could be an improper balance in environmental conditions or poor irrigation. Start by diagnosing everything including the temperature, lighting, vapor pressure, relative humidity and other factors before checking the nutrient program. If there are new plants, use a different grow site before mixing them with the older plants to avoid disease.
5. Healthy Root Zone
It might be tough to diagnose plant illness especially if it’s a root-zone failure or poor nutrients. Get ahead of any problems as they happen. If there is a failure with the root zone, the plant will become ill and produce unsuccessful flowers. Make sure you inoculate your flowers and avoid using too much or little water.
Cannabis grow operations can be productive and profitable if done the right way. Use these tips to enjoy a healthy and successful cannabis crop.
