A STUDY ON THE CANNABIS VERTICAL GROWING SYSTEM AND ITS ADVANTAGES
Growing cannabis in a cost effective manner and efficiently are shown in several growing facilities that are increasingly established ever since recreational cannabis was legalized in California in January 2018. Several medical marijuana started their facilities in occupied pre-existing buildings, but sooner, many new entrepreneurs are coming in to be part of the industry. With this increase of interest, new facilities are being constructed and new equipment are needed.
In order to get yields in a maximum manner, some pre-existing medical marijuana facilities reached out and looked for some new methods in growing solution where vertical space is being utilized. It was fortunate that there are systems and space design groups with maximizing space as their specialty who have the answer to this need. This grow solution at first was a learning experience for both the space and design teams and their clients especially the idea was a first in multi-tiered grow solution.After taking into considerations several obstacles like matters about lighting, irrigation, ventilation and plant height requirements and so on, they designed finally a vertical solution after working on the project for 5 months of completion.
In lined with the solution on customizable storages, there are companies that can answer to this need with products that can be applied to almost everything. There is a company to serve as an example for many years that has been a strong place holder in areas like museums, libraries, hospitals, public safety and military markets. There is now a challenge being faced by the systems planners of the company with the emergence of new clients in the marijuana market with things that are living and not just stocks of things.
It is noteworthy to know that there are some conditions that have to be considered when a vertical structure of shelving has to be made. These factors are to be incorporated with each other and thus the idea is not that simple.
The first is about lighting, where the installation is to be right under the shelving section above. Next is ventilation where installation is found to be more effective above and under the shelving section. Note that the spectrum in techniques of growing hydroponic or aeroponic to various soil mediums could vary substantially. Whatever is the situation may be, one can use trays between the supporting beams, or place pots on top of the wire shelving. Furthermore, to accommodate different levels of heights, shelves are made adjustable to meet the needs.
Not only is the cannabis market using the space saver multi-tiered high density movable vertical systems , but other kinds of indoor farming are making use of it too.
