Forget used lamps, loaned ballasts, old extractors and recycled earth used equipment is usually synonymous with problems. The best is to save a little money and invest in new equipment, you will avoid unpleasant surprises.
Sprinkle with quality water
Before you start planting, find out about the quality of your water. In some areas, city water is of insufficient quality to allow good growth of cannabis. In this case, we advise you to buy bottled water or invest in a reverse osmosis unit (depending on the size of your installation).

Adjust the pH of your watering solution
Monitoring the acidity level of your water and nutrients mixture is essential for a good development of your cannabis plants. Most often, the addition of a pH-lowering agent is necessary to maintain the pH level between 5.8 and 6.3.
Measure the electroconductivity of your water
The measurement of electroconductivity (EC) makes it possible to control the salt concentration of your water: the excess of fertilizer results in a slowing of the growth, and the lack of fertilizer by the appearance of deficiencies.
Water at the right amount
Neither too much nor too little: both excess and lack of water are harmful to plants. We recommend reading our blog post devoted to: How to water your cannabis plants .
Plants need water in the right amount
Adjust the number of lamps to the growing area
Do not expect to harvest more by growing more plants with the same lamp. Cannabis plants need about 600 W of HPS light per square meter to bloom properly. We invite you to read our blog post on the topic: How to assemble your lighting kit (coming soon).
Take advantage of all available space
The best way to optimize your installation is to cover the entire available area with plants. The idea is to create a “sea of foliage” that does not give a glimpse of the soil. This will save you from wasting electricity, which is not nothing considering its price!
