I lost a whole crop of marijuana recently for a stupid mistake.
First, I should have just gotten a cannbox container and been done with it.
A cannabox container is set up by professional marijuana growers. I could ask for the lights, HVAC, water, and ventilation I want. Then an actual marijuana cultivation business does the growing facility design with the right equipment. I messed up. Rather than doing that, I had my own building constructed and purchased all the equipment I thought I needed. I had my own marijuana grow room design. I was stupid and did not reserach. I got a building that is really long, but with short ceilings. I am only 5 feet 3 inches tall, there is no need for 7-8 foot ceilings. Why waste all that space and spend more money? I thought I was being smart only having ceilings around six feet. Turns out my money making idea is costing me a whole lot. I bought HID lights for the marijuana. These lights are excellent for the growing process and creating an efficient product. The problem is that HID lights get really hot and in turn, burn the product. I recently lost an entire crop of pot due to burns. Every plant was burned beyond repair and I have to start from scratch. In order to stop this from happening again I need to raise the HID lights. They really should be on much higher ceilings. But I have short ceilings. So now I am looking at buying all new, less powerful lighting because I cheaped out on a short building.
