Cultivating marijuana indoors is largely fulfilling, and by designing and building the room perfectly, it is possible to harvest persistently. On the other hand, if you go wrong in setting up the room, you would end up pursuing a costly hobby that will never accomplish its end goal.
Building a perfect indoor grow-room may seem to be tricky even for an experienced outdoor grower, if he is not able to understand the ‘what’ and ‘why’, ‘where’ of the process, and the equipment required. Here’s a quick guide to building a great indoor grow-room for cannabis.
3 Crucial Factors to Consider
Setting up an indoor grow-room for cannabis cultivation is the most exhaustive aspect of indoor cultivation. This grow room can be anything from a tented part to a close of your home. Though, it is important to consider few vital factors before selecting a space.
Light: Ensure that there are no external sources of light. Plants require minimal light during the darkness stage. When using lights in specific phases, it is crucial that its intensity is not too high to damage your yield.
Humidity: The space should not be extremely dry or damp. Ensure that the room has 40-50% humidity level.
Temperature: The temperature in the room should neither be very hot nor very cold. Usually, these plants thrive in a temperature range of 70-85 degrees.
Significance of Air Flow and Ventilation
When you build grow rooms for cannabis cultivation, ensure that there’s adequate ventilation to allow fresh air inside and old air outside. The quality of carbon dioxide and air in these spaces play crucial roles in the production since this is what is needed for plants to flourish. One fan would be needed for air circulation in exhaust and grow-room.
When you plan a grow room indoors, safety is a very important consideration. Water supplies and electric devices should be separated. Before beginning cultivation, make sure that all timers and pipes are functioning correctly. Check all electrical connections once. It is recommended to purchase new gear; if employing an old one, check it thoroughly. You can purchase new lights if very old since those can lead to poor outcomes.
Test the Setup
After the whole system is built, try a test run to ensure that there are no errors. Check the reservoirs and timers. Ensure that light does not escape from the grow room; light should also not enter from outside.
Maintaining the Temperature
Also, make sure that there is no fluctuation in temperature; for safety, always have a fire extinguisher handy with you at all times.
These tips can certainly help you in building the perfect grow-room for pursuing cannabis cultivation!
