Space, Basic Infrastructure and Soil
Space is a must for every cannabis cultivation operations.
Regardless of how well funded your grow operation is, how much growing experience you have or what kind of plants you’re growing, all marijuana grow operations have one thing in common — they need space. Having enough space is important for many reasons, but one of the main reasons why it matters so much is to ensure that your crops are properly ventilated. But even so, determining exactly how much space you need isn’t always easy.
What to think about when determining how much space you need.
- The canopy of your plants – Obviously, how many plants you’re planning to cultivate will make a difference in the amount of space you need. Each plant should be potted in containers that are at least five gallons. This is because cannabis roots require a lot of room and expand quickly, and if you use smaller receptacles, you’ll have smaller yields.
- Ventilation equipment – As we mentioned, ventilation is an incredibly important aspect of a successful grow operation. Make sure there is enough room for all of the ventilation equipment you need, like clip fans, intake/exhaust fans and carbon filters.
- Grow lights – You can’t have an indoor cannabis cultivation site without grow lights. Make sure that you account for both the size of the grow lights as well as the necessary distance between the lights and your plants.
- Tools and accessories – Finally, you’ll need to make sure you have plenty of room for the tools and accessories you need to maintain your grow site, including soil, pumps, nutrients, shears, reservoirs, etc.
If you’re going to put more thought into anything, make it the soil.
Having the right amount of space and the ideal set-up is just one step to setting up a successful grow operation. You can buy the very best lights and ventilation system, and have as much space as possible, but without the right kind of soil, you won’t see the same kind of yields. And, once you choose your soil, you’ll need to monitor it carefully to ensure that the pH levels stay between 5.5 and 6.5.
