Climate Control: Creating a Haven

There’s no doubt that climate control is one of the major headaches for growers all around the world, no matter the scope, location or seed strain.

 

The first hurdle to wrap your head around (and where many people fall), is that every element of climate control is connected.
If you try to control or fix one element on its own, you’re very likely to turn your small issue into an almighty stress.

 

The reality is ‘fixing’ a solitary element will have a knock-on effect on another element. Let’s take a look at the fundamentals.

 

Why Grow Indoors?

 

Indoor growers prefer this method for a number of reasons: city-dwellers might not have access to a garden, or the real and basic need for privacy it allows for. But ultimately, it makes room for total environmental control. But just because you have the potential for control doesn’t mean that it comes easy.
Outside growing has natural elements to contribute, but indoors, you are essentially Mother Nature.

 

The Basic Elements

So, what do you need to think about? Here’s a breakdown of the basic elements that come into play:

 

Air: We all need air to survive, but while we use air for its oxygen content, plants switch it up and use CO2. As we know, plants consume CO2 and use it for the photosynthesis process, which produces oxygen in the process.
Plants can fare pretty well in the normal CO2 range in the outside air (between 400-700 ppm), but in fact, they flourish with a higher CO2 concentration (between 1000-15000 ppm).

 

Temperature: We all have our temperature threshold. We could freeze at the top of Everest or get heatstroke in the Mojave Desert and likewise, plants have a range of temperatures in which they can truly thrive. These temperatures generally depend on the type of plant and its place of origin, but in general Herb plants like to be around 22-26 degrees to get optimal results. But of course this is strain dependant, as plants from the tropics (satvias) naturally thrive in higher temperatures of 26-30 degrees.

 

Humidity: The amount of water vapor in the air truly matters, it determines how plants grow and develop and the development of organisms that can be harmful to plants, such as mould. Humidity in plant depends on the growth cycle: in the vegetation stage plants are happiest at around 70% RH, while in flowering you’d be wise to keep it lower at around the 50% RH level.

 

 

What Equipment Will I Need?

 

Now, when it comes to the right equipment to create a perfect climate, things can get tricky. You’re going to need the following: a growing tent, vents, temperature meters and humidity gauges. Sounding easy enough? Yep, they’re just the basics.

 

Now it’s time to invest in an air-conditioning unit to control the temperature. A dehumidifier to control the humidity. And the right type of lights to use to emulate all-important sunshine (and protect your electricity bill!)

 

This article by Maximum Yield goes into more detail on the complexities of home growing equipment.

 

Now, you need to put all these parts together so they completely make sense. That’s not an easy task and is turning into a major investment of your hard-earned cash and limited time.

 

Dont Give up On The Dream

 

Before you run screaming for the hills, we’ve got the solution for you.

 

Seedo is an auto-growing hydroponic device that takes care of all your climate control parameters and gives your plants the
ideal conditions they need to grow big, strong and plentiful. And the cherry on the cake is…it’s completely automatic.
Simply set a growth plan for your particular plant species and sit back and let it grow (no interference necessary).

 

Seedo controls the CO2 level and utilizes an inbuilt AC unit for humidity and temperature control (no Everest or Mojave for your lovely plants). It’s basically a dream come true for home growers.

 

Don’t let climate control get in the way of your home growing dream.

 

Join the revolution and let it grow!
