Harvesting At The Right Time

What's the first step in creating fat, potent, mind-blowing buds?

Unfortunately, this is a question that is very difficult to answer as it depends on the specific strain you’re growing, the area you’re growing in, and the size of the plant being grown (smaller plants need less light). The general rule to go with is “more is better”, and watch your plants to see how they react. In most cases, it’s hard to give your plants too much light unless you have a high powered LED or a 1000 watt HPS.

Have you ever had cannabis that was just…so so? Mediocre? Just okay? Cannabis that’s ‘just alright’?

You’ve probably heard it a million times, but good cannabis starts with good genes. Having seeds with good attributes to work with gives you a plant that will flourish under the right conditions as opposed to just surviving.

Shelf growing cannabis

Was it really made to be stacked?

There is always a question of whether or not the shelving unit you have chosen is capable of doing what you want it to do. There are plenty a makeshift growing apparatuses in the marketplace new or used that are not good enough to be used for what you want it to do. In fact, a lot of them are made of wood which could be very bad for your yield. It is because wood can attract insects and have mold. Neither of these two things are good for your livelihood or your extra income on the side. Granted, if you are looking at a vertical cannabis shelving unit for which to grow in then you are probably big enough where this is your main income. Even more reason that you should do everything you can to make sure that your grow is protected and that you can make the income that you need.

This may seem like a really weird question to ask but it is very important. You could go to your local grow shop and try to order one of these shelves. However, what you need to realize is that your local growing shop probably is not well versed in material handling. They will not know the ins and outs of getting a pallet rack and what they should be looking out for as far as permitting and safety. The truth is that most of these pallet racks, which are the vertical cannabis shelving units, come with a safety clip. The safety clip tends to fail over time at what it is supposed to do. The safety clip is there to make sure that the shelving unit cannot come off the rack. However, it does tend to lose the ability to do that over time and use. Therefore, you have to be very careful when using this product because it could come off the rack. The thing to do here is to get a safety pin as that does not fail for the most part unless there is some type of damage, user error, or there was a manufacturing error to begin with in the first place. Using a grow rack beam safety pin drop and a safety clip is probably a good idea in most cases. As mentioned before, your local grow shop is probably not going to know this and cannot mention it to you. They also cannot help you through the permit process because this is not something they do consistently. You are better off going with a company that understands you and your needs so that you, your family, and your employees if you have any, are protected while you work on your business’s yield.
