As a new grower, you are bound to make some mistakes. Hey, nobody is perfect, but knowing is half the battle. Here are 7 grow mistakes you are probably making in your first DIY grow (and how to fix them).
1. Using cheap equipment
Using cheap equipment not only gives you poor results but can also be dangerous. If you don’t know how to wire electricity, you could ruin your equipment. Worse, you could start a fire.
With the complete SuperCloset system, all the calculations and wiring are already done. Just plug and plant! From surge protection to shock busters for water protection, you will know you are covered.
2. Not knowing you’re making grow mistakes
Going in blind for your first grow only leads to disappointment or disaster. The best indoor grow tent system on the market, SuperCloset comes with a complete setup and grow guide, so you know exactly what to do, every step of the way.
3. Not monitoring
Keeping your environment perfect for cannabis takes attention to the details. Humidity, temperature, PH, all these need to be kept under strict control for the best results. Wing it, and your plants could die.
The SuperCloset system comes with complete monitoring systems for temperature, humidity, and even nutrient concentration.
4. Nutrient burn
It can be easy to over-do it with nutrients. A little goes a long way, and you won’t often find the perfect ratios for cannabis in your local gardening store. Why bother with the hassle when SuperClosets system comes with a complete TechnaFlora Nutrient Super Pack perfect for your precious plants?
5. Not enough oxygen to roots
Hydroponics grow your weed faster, but can be finicky. Lack of oxygen to roots can quickly kill all your hard work. With a 132-gallon-per-hour pump and deep-water oxygenation from an Eco Air 2-Port Air Pump, you can rest assured your grow will yield huge results. Be sure to keep soil oxygenated, too.
6. Not enough light
Many first time growers also hugely underestimate how much light to give their plants. Poorly lit plants grow tall, lanky, and slow, not to mention yield far less. The SuperCloset system combines 12-bandwidth full spectrum 3-watt Kind LED K3 main light in addition to T-5 supplemental side lighting for a full canopy and huge results.
7. Poor air circulation and filtration
Not enough air leads to weak plants, and not enough filtration can also lead to that conspicuous odorgiving away your indoor stealth grow. The SuperCloset knows their stuff with maximum airflow, dual industrial grade seamless carbon filters, and quiet components throughout, so not a sound or smell escapes.
