Setting Up a MMJ Clones Garden
Think First. The first step to setting up your grow room for mmj clones is determining where it will be. Most personal grow rooms utilize either a pre-existing room, such as a spare bedroom, an attic, basement, closet, whether it be walk-in or not or a large vertical cabinet.
Reflectors. Quality reflectors is a very important investment, as they reduce hot spots and therefore allow you to hang your light closer to your mmj clones. The difference between a good and a poor reflector can mean an almost 100% increase in your marijuana harvest. It is suggested to buy your ballast when you buy your lights, so that you can be sure they match.
When hanging your lights, make sure that they can be moved up and down. You will need to keep them a constant distance away from the mmj clones, but the cannabis plants grow, will want to easily raise and lower your lights.
Water & Light Proofing. Make sure your grow room has absolutely no water or light leaks. If your floor is not waterproof, the structure that your grow room is made out of will slowly start to rot. Light proofing is even more important.
If there are light leaks into your grow room during the 12 hour dark period, your mmj clones will be unnecessarily stressed. To check for light leaks, stand in your room with the lights off, and let your eyes adjust for a couple minutes. Then check and fix light leaks with tape and be sure the walls are reflective.
Containers. Most containers are made of either plastic or fiber. Plastic is the more practical material for indoors, as the main advantage of fiber pots is the fact that roots can grow through the bottom and into the ground. Fiber pots are also not reusable. Most indoor grows use containers between 2-5 gallons for their final size, depending on how large you want your mmj clones to grow.
Ventilation. It is essential that your grow room have some air movement. Air movement thickens mmj clone stalks, helps prevent mold and insects and spreads C02. Fans are essential, even if it is only one blows back and forth over your mmj clones.
Ventilation to the outside is also necessary. For heat reasons, it is recommended that you put the intake as low as you can and the exhaust as high as you can. Make sure neither of the vents lets light in. Some sort of inline fan should be attached to the exhaust to suck air out of the room.
CO2. Adding additional C02 helps make up for the fact that since you are growing indoors, there isn't a constant flow of fresh air to your mmj clones. C02 around the leaves is used up very quickly, it needs to be replaced.
Adding C02 artificially can make it so that not only do you have more than enough, but will also speed up the rate at which your mmj clones do everything, including using up nutrients; so take that in mind. Ideally, your parts per million (ppm) of C02 should be between 1000 and 1500 to grow mmj clones for sale in San Diego.
Odor Control. Large ozone generators are very effective at getting rid of smell, but they are also prohibitively expensive. Ozone generators are also available in very small forms, even a spray, but their effectiveness is debated. Ozium works quite well, but it's only a temporary solution. Carbon scrubbers are can-type filters that reduce smell; however, most experienced mmj clone cultivators use inline carbon filters on exhaust vents.
