Top Tips For Keeping Your Medical Marijuana Grow Room Clean


There is an old saying that cleanliness is next to godliness. A grow room for medical marijuana holds true to that saying. By taking some simple steps in maintaining a clean grow room you will reduce the risk of getting pests and disease while maintaining higher yields. Here are a few simple steps than can help you keep your grow room a clean room.


Clean up dead plant matter. When you are inspecting your plants, look for fallen leaves on the ground, inside plant container or within your hydroponic system. By removing the fallen leaves you are also removing a breeding ground for pests and disease.


The same holds true for old soil or root matter. Do not store old soil or root masses in or around your grow room. Dead plant matter is extremely attractive to a variety of pests but especially fungus. Many gardeners with root rot problems don’t ever associate their problem with unkept grow rooms.


Clean your intake filter. If you don’t have an intake filter then go buy one. If you can’t afford one, use an old carbon filter or some pantyhose attached with zip-ties. Intake filters keep unwanted dirt, dust and bugs from ever entering your grow room. Clean the filter once a month to restore maximum air flow and inspect for bugs. Early detection on an intake filter can give a gardener a jumpstart on treatment programs.


Remove bulbs and glass from reflectors and clean them about once a month. Even with an intake filter, bulbs and reflectors develop a thin layer of dust capable of compromising their performance. Cleaning the bulbs and glass in your grow room can help you maintain the maximum light output at all times. It is a good rule of thumb to also wipe down any reflective material on your walls or ceiling.


Clean up spills, excess water or plant runoff. Many times indoor soil gardening can leave you with a wet floor. Invest in a wet/dry vacuum to suck up any spillage or run off. Leaving moisture on the floor raises humidity levels and increases your risk of mold or rot.


Clean and maintain equipment. Every two months it is a good time to inspect and clean all the hardware in your grow room. An air compressor blown into a ballast can clean out dirt and dust, prolonging its life and efficiency. If you don’t have an air compressor, the compressed air sold to clean computers will work as well. Air conditioners, dehumidifiers, heaters, CO2 emitters, atmospheric controllers, light timers and fans should all be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis.


Like most things in your garden, it will help to take notes on a calendar to remember when and what you did. Keeping your medical marijuana grow room clean will not only reduce the risk of problems but also make it a more inviting place to spend time. Your plants will appreciate the extra effort you have put in and repay you with more consistent results.
