When I decided to start a growing op for marijuana, I really did not think it through.
I should have done some research and crunched numbers.
Instead, right on day one I got a building constructed on my property. I got ductless HVAC, lights, plumbing and plenty of table space for the plants. After that, I purchased some seeds online and started to begin the growing process. I quickly realized that none of my buds were flowering. I could not get the product I wanted. I never got to the harvesting or curing stage. So after a bit of research, I realized that I had totally the wrong settings in the building. The HVAC was not set to the right degrees. Keeping the marijuana at 75 degrees, where I am comfortable, is not smart. I should have rotated between 50 and 80 degrees. The lights should be 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness. I also realized that basic lighting in my building doesn’t get the job done. I really need to rip them out and replace with HID lights. After that, I saw that I had forgotten about nutrients. I was so worried about watering my crop that I did not purchase any. The space also is a bit too narrow and the ceilings too tall for the growing process. My equipment is not totally incorrect, but not really right. I spent a whole bunch of money on a growing facility that isn’t exactly what I should have. I should have called an actual marijuana cultivation business.
