    Whether you have a small closet grow setup or you just want to try something new & unique, the 12/12 from seed approach to indoor growing is for you!

    This style of cultivating plants is very different from what you may be used to, and can help you maximize your space and time, while fitting more harvests into a year. You can experiment with more strains this way, too.

  • 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.

  • What Is The Best Grow Light Setup?

    To grow the biggest, strongest plants possible, you need to put together the ultimate grow light setup.

  • How To Handle Excessive Grow Tent Heat

    Managing grow tent heat is one of the more difficult, frustrating aspects of indoor growing.

    Not too hot and not too cold; many of the plants we grow are just like us and prefer similar temperatures - between 65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit.

    They also hate temperature fluctuations, which means you need to do your best to keep your daytime/nighttime temps relatively similar. There will be some difference, but huge swings can stress them out as plants have to adjust.

    Failing to fix an issue with your grow tent being too hot will weaken your plants nutrient uptake and leave them more susceptible to diseases before they eventually die.

    Let's take a look at some common grow tent heat problems, and how to remove this heat from your grow tent or grow room.
