Top tips for growing in warm weather

                                  

Plants

                  

      

               Nutriculture Grow Systems top tips for growing in warm weather: Keeping a room cooler is so much easier, if you’ve got good headroom. Whilst it’s not always possible, we’d suggest around 6ft or higher is the space you should be looking for. This will allow for increased air movement and enable better temperature control.

 The important thing to remember with growing is that you need to learn what the plant needs rather than just doing as the chart says, charts should be used as a guideline and a point of reference.

Light Intensity - Maximising your light

                                  

the inverse square law

                  

      

 Every grower at some point has asked the question “how close do I keep the light to my plant” the closer you can get it the bigger the yield will be but we have to take into account that if we mount the light to close to the plant this will cause burn to the flowers and leaves.

OPTICLIMATE PRO 3 - Why Spend £3000?

                                  

Opticlimate pro 3

                  

      

                When growing with a closed loop system it is very important to make sure you have a fully air tight seal on your room, when I build my grow rooms I always build a room within a room using 3x2 timber and plasterboard with an MDF ceiling (to make fixing lights easier) and every joint and gap is filled with either expanding foam or caulk.   After the room is built and I have an air tight room I then line the walls with ORCA grow film this is the best reflective material on the market!!! Yes it’s more expensive than black and white but you get what you pay for and you will see the difference in your yield.

LST - Low Stress Training

                                  

Plant

                  

      

                LST (low stress training) is a brilliant technique for training plants, the idea is to gently bend young plants and tie them down, this forces the plant to grow multiple flower sites meaning that you harvest much bigger yields (everyone likes bigger yields) this technique also allows you to force the plant to grow into a shape and size that you want, which is good for people who don’t have a lot of space.

How much air movement do we need in our grow?

Air movement in the grow room

               

   A common misconception is that plants need to be moved via air movement.  People argue that when the plant moves from side to side, it is made stronger.  This isn’t the case. Every time a plant moves, it has to readjust to the new environment, using up energy that it should be using to grow
