A soil knife

The Hori-Hori is a hands-on favorite of several gardeners we talked with. This is a Japanese tool with a stainless steel concave blade with a sharp edge on one side and a serrated edge on the other. It can be used for cutting through roots, transplanting, dividing perennials, slicing through sod, weeding, removing bonsai plants from pots and many more garden tasks.

Light

Cannabis LightsLighting is one of, if not the most essential ingredient needed for a quick, high yielding crop. Your light may very well be your single greatest expense, but very well worth the investment. Maximizing light distribution to your plants will enhance photosynthesis tremendously. Photosynthesis is the process by which carbon dioxide and water are turned into sugary food and oxygen. So the more ligh your plants receive, the faster and bigger they grow.

There are many lighting systems available in the market today, a complete one will have; a bulb, reflector, ballast, timer and electrical input/outputs. Cannabis lighting systems allow you to emulate the sunlight outdoors for indoor growing as well as completely control and extend the natural “growing season” and manipulate it at will to affect plant hormones.

When growing indoors, artificial lights produce bigger flowers (bigger bud) than natural sunlight. You will yield way more THC quantity with artificial lighting that you ever could with window-light grown cannabis.

Grow room

Setting up a growing facility isn’t cheap. Even the basics requirements needed can add up cost-wise. The main advantage is that indoors you are protected from natural challenges and road blocks. So setting up might be more complicated than outdoors but the results and your margins will be a lot greater. Testing things out with a single grow box might be a good solution to get started because they provide many factors needed for growing growing cannabis on a small scale.

Pots

The bigger the better if you can, nothing less than 5 gallon pots should be used long term. The roots of a cannabis plant expand very rapidly and you want them to have as much room to grow as possible., a smaller pot leads to smaller yields. You can get rubbermaid tubs on Amazon.com that make great growing pots because the roots can expand to their true potential. Another solution is to buy buckets that you can get in bulk here. Just drill a few holes in the bottom and they work just as good as pots. Aside from this, one of the easiest ways to get great results for your cannabis grow is to purchase grow bags. These are super easy to maintain and they allow the roots to really breathe resulting in stunning grows and even better yields. These bags can also be bought in bulk and are worth every penny.

Get yourself a tray to collect water runoff or a tarp, and you should be all set. The also sell very cheap plastic trays that slide underneath the 2 gallon to 5 gallon pots and can be found online for around a dollar each. Just about any plate, or Tupperware can be used to collect the water run off as well.

Watering system

Water running from your pots to the floor is inevitable. So best to keep your house and production safe with a waterproof floor.

Humidity describes the amount of water in the air. You will need just the right amount of moisture in the air that will push the growth of your plants will at the same time not too much humidity because it will cause fungus and mold.

Fan
To ensure that the fresh air supplied by the extraction system is evenly distributed in your growing area, you also need one (ore more) fan(s) for good air circulation. By constantly circulating the air, the fan ensures an even distribution of temperature, humidity and C02.

Your plants will need fresh air as well. During photosynthesis the plants take CO2 (carbon dioxide) and transform it into oxygen and sugars. The closed environment of a grow box will need a hole or entry point to supply fresh air and CO2 for your plants.

Use a fan for consistent air circulation. This way temperature and CO2 will spread evenly throughout the room.

Security

Make sure to seal your windows and use a carbon filter against the marijuana scent. Think about using extra locks or even cameras especially when growing in a warehouse. Don’t put your crop at risk.

Think about different scenarios and how you could prevent them. Better act now than in crises.
