  • Harvest Waste Disposal - What Should You Do With All The Leftover Plant Matter?

    Something that not many growers think about as their facility grows is how they're going to manage the increased volume of harvest waste disposal they're responsible for.

    Once the harvest season has ended and your flower is drying or curing, you still have some work to do - you need a legal, environmentally-friendly, efficient way to get rid of all that plant waste from trimming and bucking.

    As more and more organizations look for a holistic, cost-effective way to deal with that harvest waste, innovative solutions have quickly emerged.

  • Vertical Growing: The Future Of Gardening & Farming

    Vertical growing is the way of the future - at least some people think so. Others have no idea what it even is.

    When you think about agriculture, what comes to mind? For most people, it’s growing crops in horizontal lines on the ground. 

    While this traditional system of agriculture has worked well for many years (centuries, even!) there’s a new method of growing food that’s taking the world by storm - vertical agriculture.

    Vertical agriculture, or vertical growing, is the practice of growing plants by stacking or layering them, growing them vertically rather than horizontally. 

    Not only does it use less space, but vertical farming also can be done in a hydroponic setup.  There are several methods, including indoor vertical farming. 

    But whatever the case may be, it’s a smart way to extend a growing season, extend a growing space, and extend your garden’s productivity. Here’s everything you need to know.

    Because of Gorilla Grow Tent’s reputation as one of the best in the indoor growing industry, we just had to get our hands on the Gorilla DE 1,000 Watt Grow Light for a review.

  • Botanicare Slide Bench Review

    We got the chance to setup and review the Botanicare Slide Bench, one of the latest additions to the commercial hydroponics industry. This bench offers a substantial increase in efficiency, flexibility, and profitability for commercial growers.

    If you aren’t familiar with the Botanicare Slide Bench, it is a premium hydroponics bench that helps commercial growers get the most out of their floor space.

    It completely eliminates the need for aisles in a commercial warehouse or grow room, maximizing the use of expensive, limited floor space.
