The key to huge, high-quality yields isn’t your grow space, but how you use it, which is why indoor growers everywhere continue choosing mobile grow racks to house their plants.
However, your racking system isn’t the only piece of equipment you’ll need. Here are some of the most critical components of the ultimate mobile grow room.
MOBILE (AND VERTICAL) GROW RACKS
One of the most essential components of your mobile grow room is, of course, a mobile racking system. These racks have taken the world of indoor cultivation by storm thanks to the significant space-saving opportunities they offer.
Growers that use traditional stationary racks must create multiple aisleways so that employees can care for their plants. With a mobile system, you can create just one aisle, which can be opened up where and when you need it, giving you more square footage for growing. To further optimize your grow space, take advantage of your grow room’s volume with a vertical mobile racking system.
You know you need grow trays, but you don’t want just any. Rather than generic storage trays, which don’t do anything to facilitate your cultivation efforts, you want trays that are purpose-built for cannabis. Grow Glide’s trays, for example, are built with materials made specifically for the warm, humid environment of cannabis grow rooms and include features to support your plumbing and drainage.
A LIGHTING SYSTEM
Growers have two main options when it comes to their lighting system: HPS and LED. HPS systems produce large amounts of light that support flowering and have been known to produce high yields. LEDs are more energy efficient and, in many cases, can be programmed to emit the wavelengths that help plants thrive throughout multiple stages of growth.
LED and HPS systems have their pros and cons, so it all comes down to your individual needs and goals. Whichever you choose, you’ll want to ensure your system is built to integrate seamlessly with your mobile racks.
AIR CIRCULATION SYSTEM
Mobile vertical grow rooms have a high plant count and density, making climate control absolutely critical to successful growth. If either your temperature or humidity is off, your plants may suffer from pest infestations, disease, and stunted growth. A high-quality airflow system can minimize these risks by providing consistent airflow across your entire canopy.
IRRIGATION & DRAINAGE
Hand watering just doesn’t make sense for grow operations with a large footprint. Instead, incorporate an automated irrigation system into your grow room design to save you time, money, and effort.
Your irrigation runoff needs somewhere to go, making a drainage system another crucial component of any grow room. To simplify your system’s installation and management, Grow Glide’s mobile racks are built with plumbing in mind and include features such as bulkhead-free drains, drainage tie-off points, and more.
What Else Do You Need?
Once you’ve built out the bones of your grow space, you can begin outfitting your facility with other critical growing equipment.
Whether you opt for tray or hang drying, cannabis-specific mobile drying racks are key to optimizing this important post-harvest process.
Safety must be a top priority when accessing higher tiers on a mobile vertical setup. For maximum security and efficiency, your catwalk system should be lightweight yet sturdy and should lock into your racks.
GROW SENSORS & MONITORING SYSTEMS
Pen-and-paper cultivation management can lead to data bottlenecks, workflow inefficiencies, and lower-quality product. Instead, many growers are taking a digital approach by installing grow sensors that can be connected to a facility management software system.
