Proper temperature and humidity are critical for a healthy cannabis crop.
Cannabis grown indoors has different requirements from green-house grown cannabis. Having control of the growing environment will result in more consistently healthy crops, using either method.
The first thing to consider is light levels. In a greenhouse there can be as much as double the amount of light as to what is attainable with the best artificial light.
Next, growers must consider the crops’ environment. Greenhouses are more difficult to control than indoor grow facilities. The outside temperature and humidity have a much greater effect on a greenhouse operation compared to an indoor facility. Although there are plenty of technologies available to help manage greenhouse conditions, it requires more knowledge and attention to detail. Mistakes in a greenhouse have more drastic consequences and occur faster than in indoor cultivation facilities.
Don’t Overlook Humidity
Humidity is incredibly important but often overlooked in cannabis growing operations. Humidity requirements are different for each plant’s developmental stage, but humidity controls a large part of the plant growth and morphology. Humidity control is every bit as important as temperature control. Proper humidity can also be one preventative for the un-wanted mites.
Many growing operations use evaporative cooling to regulate humidity, but these systems use mists and sprays, to lower air temperature, which can create too much humidity. Standard air conditioning, on the other hand, can dehumidify too much. Design the best possible environment to give complete control over the facilities’ temperature and humidity.
How Hydronic Cooling Controls Humidity
Like radiant heat, chilled water cooling is controlled and regulated by pumping cold water from a chiller from fan coils using circulator pumps and zone valves, controlled and regulated by environmental controls, adding benefit of energy cost savings.
Optimize Cannabis Growth With Controlled Under-Bench Heat
Seasoned cannabis growers know that under-bench heating offers unparalleled precision for indoor growing operations looking to cultivate a healthy, high yield cannabis crop. An efficient and cost effective growing solution, under-bench heating provides warmth at the root zone to promote accelerated rooting. Bench heat also allows for more uniform heat pattern, helping to dry soil faster to reduce incidences of fungal disease.
Consider under-bench heat for advantages you can’t find elsewhere including: soil level heating for healthier plants and faster turns. Heat that envelops soil, roots, and foliage, adding benefits of energy cost savings.
Environmental control is needed all the way through drying and curing. Improve crop health to achieve a level in the pharmaceutical industry.
