Maximizing Your Cannabis Yields with Grow Flow Solutions
It’s no surprise that water quality can be one of the most important factors in large-scale cannabis growing operations. At its most basic level, cannabis is a plant, and just like all plants, cannabis craves quality water to grow. Unlike other plants, however, cannabis is extremely sensitive. Any unsuspecting changes in the soil or water can have major effects on the cannabis plant’s growth, potency, and maximum yield. Grow Flow solutions can provide quality water for your cannabis, leading to improved yields.
Quality Water in Cannabis Growing
The water you use to grow your plants can significantly impact the final product. Clean water can be important in your grow house for a number of reasons. A few of those reasons include disease prevention and nutrient absorption. If the water you’re using is polluted and full of harmful chemicals and diseased, it can block the roots from absorbing the important nutrients they need, stunting the plant’s growth. Additionally, hard water, which affects more than 85 percebt of North America, can be extremely harmful to your cannabis plants. Hard water contains high concentrations of minerals like calcium and magnesium, which can affect the pH of the soil and your plants. Cannabis prefers slightly acidic soil conditions, ranging between a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. It’s important to note that not only do different cannabis strains have slightly different pH requirements but so do cannabis plants in their different growth phases.
There are many challenges that can come with maintaining consistent quality water. Municipal water can contain high levels of chlorine, chloramines, and other contaminants that can harm cannabis plants and many water treatment systems are not designed to handle the volume of water needed for large-scale cannabis production. Ensuring consistent water quality will offer you a return on investment you can visibly see with higher yields, leading you to higher profit margins.
Ensuring Improved Cannabis Yields with Quality Water
Consistency is key when it comes to cannabis growth of any size. However, large-scale growing operations can have their own difficulties in keeping up with the same techniques that they used when they only had a few plants to worry about. For instance, hand watering may not be nearly as probable when you have a few different grow houses to worry about. Not being able to keep a close eye on every single plant means that the water quality is more important than ever. Irrigation systems that drop directly into each cannabis pot can be extremely useful in not only making sure every plant is taken care of but ensuring that quality water is being distributed evenly throughout your grow house.
The quality of nutrients each plant gets will influence its total size, affecting the amount of bud you can collect from each plant. Using clean water will allow your plant nutrients to travel directly to plants. Additionally, size isn’t everything. Outdoor plants may grow bigger overall but indoor plants produce more per crop.
Grow Flow Solutions for Water Treatment
There are many different avenues you can take in finding water treatment solutions for your commercial growing operation. Depending on your exact needs and your current water quality, a custom water management system can be tailored to fit your grow house. Grow Flow not only offers different water treatment systems but connects you with water quality engineers that can help you design a customized system suitable for your unique situation.
For facilities that suffer from hard water problems, a water softener system may be just the thing to soften your water and prevent minimal build-up in your pipes. Growers that require ultra-pure water may find that a deionization system is the right choice. A common choice for many growers is the use of a reverse osmosis system that removes up to 99% of impurities from your water. The important thing to note with all water treatment systems in cannabis cultivation is that they work best paired with the growing medium and nutrients you already have prepared. In removing contaminants from water, these treatment systems remove the good nutrients as well, which is why it’s so important to add your own growing nutrients into the mix. This offers you complete control over what your plants are consuming.
