Have in mind that when making your own grow room or box you will have to make the holes where the duct tubing goes in and out.
Note: Instead of using mylar, you can use a white plastic sheet, it won’t reflect light as good as mylar but it works great if you can’t find mylar easily.
As you may know, an indoor weed grow room allows us to control and adjust the temperature, humidity, and intensity of the airflow, because of this, your grow room must be air-tight.
If you’re planning on using a heavy light fixture (or more than one) and an exhaust fan with a carbon filter, it’s better to use metal poles so the structure can bear the weight.
Some lights are heavier than others or maybe you’ll need to use more than one light fixture. So remember to test the structure you’ve made with the exhaust fan, carbon filter, and light fixtures (and maybe add more support) so you don’t risk killing your plants if the equipment falls on them.
Despite seeming like a hard task, identifying the circuit is really easy because the circuit breaker panel should have labels on it, helping you identify to which circuit belongs (either master bedroom, room #2, or whatever you wanna call it) and the amperage of said circuit.
First, you’ll need to cut and assemble the poles into something like this:
The grow room needs to be 100% light-proof, this is to avoid the waste of precious light and avoids your plants from stressing out.
If you’re planning to build your grow room with plywood for example, you have to cover the inside with a waterproof material like a plastic sheet (or something similar).
Part of growing cannabis involves creating a healthy living environment for your seed and plant. Using living soil and organic nutrients to aid in absorption can help your plants grow flavorful and potent flower buds.
Designing a marijuana grow room comes with many different options in terms of location, space needed, watering, lighting, ventilation, and more equipment needs. Knowing the components you need can help you understand what goes into an efficient grow room setup.
Best Irrigation Practices
How you water your plant depends on your growing preference. For commercial growers, hydroponic growing is a sustainable and effective cultivation method for multiple reasons:
From Soil to Oil
LED lighting is a popular and eco-friendly choice for an indoor grow room setup, small or large. Saving on lighting bills can make a huge difference when plants need hours upon hours of continuous lighting. LED lights are long-lasting and remain cool even after long periods of use. Just make sure there’s enough space between your plant and lights to prevent burning.
A craft grower is a facility that is licensed by the Department of Agriculture to cultivate, dry, cure, and package hemp or marijuana. They each have their own commercial marijuana grow room design plans but for licensing as a craft grow, they must contain at least 5,000 square feet of canopy space for the cannabis plants during the flowering stage of their life cycle. The Department of Agriculture can authorize either an increase or decrease of space for the flowering cultivation stage which occurs in increments of 3,000 square feet depending on the market need, the craft grow house design capacity, and the history of the licensee’s compliance or noncompliant issues. The maximum set forth is 14,000 square feet for cultivation when the plants enter their flowering stage. However, the commercial grow room design plan laid forth by the USDA encompasses all the growth stages of the cannabis plant which drives home the importance of them being secured and enclosed in an indoor cultivation facility design.
Within the confines of the indoor grow facility, air circulation keeps the plant’s canopy slightly swaying because of the artificial breeze. The upper flowers in a vertical grow are then prevented from getting excessively hot. Clearly, the environmental controls are of paramount importance or cannabis crop loss can occur and pests from clones can easily enter the facility if things are not kept at consistent levels. Engineering and installation are one of the biggest investments (if not the biggest) of any commercial grow room design plan. You cannot cut corners, or the financial losses quickly become insurmountable.
The Typical Craft Grow Facility — Room Division
Any engineer used to create a craft grow facility should have experience with indoor plant cultivation facilities. The design of the commercial grow room will feature the necessary environmental controls, plumbing, and electrical requirements, backup power system, and typically HVAC redundancy. To achieve all of this, most will hire various engineering firms that specialize in the key areas to make the commercial grow room a success.
What’s Required for a Grow Facility Design?
The commercial cannabis industry is constantly changing and evolving. Without a doubt, the one crucial component of any commercial grow op setup remains the HVAC system. Standard commercial HVAC companies often lack the experience needed to provide the correct environmental conditions required by a craft grow facility.
