Planning For future indoor facilities, hydroponic systems. Flower period.
So here’s my question. It just makes sense to me that with so many environmental factors that light create (effect) and control temperatures and in some cases humidity (the whole nine) and even water temperatures the most logical thing to do is to target the natural environment during the flower phase depending on the “strain” (I don’t like that word but to keep it simple) relevant to the regional origin region of the plant. That said: in most regions if the natural environment of most during September-October it’s generally cooler and less day light. i’m trying to understand why some would have extremely high temps like 78-85, (rh)humidity above 60 and lights blazing. I thought that successfully growing is based on Trichomes production (as an element) and that trichome production (is light sensitivity (bc you dry in the dark as well) but also is a natural protection for the plant as the season changes. So in summary my question:
How many people try to simulate a “season” for the plant as if it was out doors? Or do you just grow based on what you “see” as in the health of the the plant daily against a pre-set regiment ( like lights on full blast, if you have 1 or more modes.)
Plants are not on our schedule and one fungus or anything else can change the tables. How do you prepare for what seems like it could be chaotic very rapidly on a large scale.
I’d appreciate some input…my goal is to start a business that helps disabled Vets source more cost effective cannabis. And all these things effect cost. Thank in advance! I appreciate if you got this far.
