Cultivating cannabis plants, especially in confined or discreet places, can be tricky. The more plants you want to grow, the more power you'll need for lighting. In traditional horizontal setups, the plants will grow one next to the other. Most of the light coming from the source will not reach the plant. More space is taken up and energy is used less efficiently. Stadium growing is where plants rise on tiered shelves around a central light source. This solves part of the problem by increasing the amount of light reaching the plants. However, there’s an even more efficient way to grow plants in tight spaces.

VERTICAL FARMING

Vertical Farming

Vertical growing has been known to more than double the amount of space available for cultivation compared to horizontal growing. Multiple shelves can be stacked in a square or hexagon around a central light source. Plants can produce impressive yields when arranged properly in these conditions. They can be stacked on shelves or arranged with trellises and strings. These setups take up less space for growing, allowing you to potentially grow more plants. It also reduces your energy bill along with the environmental impact of indoor growing. We have tips on how to set up this growing method and the right equipment ready to browse and order from our website.

The central light source will need to be kept cool. This will be easiest to manage with energy-efficient LED lights. A cooling fan under the central light source should dissipate heat upward. Wherever you're doing this, good ventilation is a given. As your plants grow, be sure to trim unproductive parts. You can also use the string grids of screen setups to shape the growth of plants further. Keep in mind, sativa strains tend to grow tall. You want a nice even shape to your plant. Be sure to rotate your crops so that each side gets an equal amount of time facing the central light source.

DIFFERENT HYDROPONIC SYSTEMS

Hidroponics Cannabis

You should see hefty yields from resilient strains at any time of year with this setup. You just need one more thing - a steady water supply for cultivation. Maximising the efficiency of your watering schedule requires a resourceful hydroponics system. There are number of ways to set up the distribution of hydration and nutrition effectively. The arrangement of the plants makes a difference, such as whether they are inside a tent or a larger space, or if they can be mechanically rotated around a light source. It is also possible for the vertical light source to come from the perimeter and not the centre of the plants.

Once you have the materials assembled, they will impact what kind of hydroponic system you can run. For example, using corrugated piping to spiral around your light source makes watering easy with hosing setups. It is also possible for nutrient film to drip water and nutrients onto your plants gradually. This can be done to the roots of plants, or continuously above with well-positioned drippers. Hopefully, a low-maintenance solution can be found by browsing the equipment available through our online store.

If you take cannabis cultivation seriously, it's time to start being economical with your time, energy, and space. Vertical cultivation could be the solution you need to get more bang for your buck.
