If you’re just getting into starting your own indoor cannabis grow, you’ve probably realized that it is pretty easy to break the bank. From the hardware store to the hydroponics store to the cannabis clone grower, you can spend a ton of money just getting started. Never mind the continuous expenses that come from your electrical bill, your water bill, your feed, and any costs that come with the seasons changing.
Adopting sustainable growing practices is one of the best ways to reduce costs when growing cannabis. Come with us as we explore a few ways in which you can optimize your sustainable cannabis grow.
If you have a small grow and you’re using light bulbs that have less than 1000w of power, then you might not be too concerned with your electricity bills. However, having a deeper understanding of your electrical system can always lead to reduced costs.
A standard circuit in your average house is 110v. The only place where this differs is in the kitchen where heavy appliances require 220v.
The electrical system in your home is at the whim of your cannabis grow, thanks to the necessary heaters, dehumidifiers, fans, lights, and air conditioners that you need for your plants to thrive. One major solution to lessening the strain on your home’s electrical system is to get low-wattage, LED bulbs, such as light-emitting ceramic bulbs or ceramic metal halides.
While these kinds of bulbs cost slightly more upfront, you will end up saving quite a bit of money in the long run.
Capitalizing on natural solutions is one of the best ways to incorporate sustainable practices into your climate control methods. Finding unique ways to create pathways for air to flow through your growing space or reducing temperatures to the point where you don’t need an air conditioner running 24/7 is crucial.
You might even choose to reverse your grow’s day and night cycles by running your lights during the night when temperatures are down.
Finding a sustainable medium is important when reducing your growing costs. We highly recommend no-till, organic solutions. If you choose to go with soil, make sure that you are maintaining an active food web inside it. In doing so, you won’t need to change your containers out between grows. The only thing that you need to do is remove the root ball when your transplant new plants.
Finding sustainable ways for your marijuana plants to grow can be good for both you and the environment. Make sure to step back and take a good look at your growing process to see what steps you can take to make it more sustainable.
