What Does Flowering Room Mean?
A flowering room is a growroom dedicated to plants about to flower, and those that are currently flowering.
Most indoor growing setups have dedicated areas for plants in different stages of growth and development, which allows growers to deliver the right amount of nutrients, light, moisture and temperature for each stage of growth.
Maximum Yield Explains Flowering Room
In horticulture, plants start their life in the nursery, and then as they mature, they will be moved to a vegetative grow room. In this room, plants will increase in size as they put most of their energy into stem growth and leaf development. However, once plants begin to switch to flower production, they need different light levels, temperature control, and other special considerations. Moving pre-flowering plants to a flowering grow room allows the grower significant control during this important stage.
In cannabis cultivation, plants are primarily grown indoors because of specific temperature, light and nutrient requirements. For growers, this means the need to set up an indoor growing system that maximizes their ability to feed and water plants without increasing costs dramatically. Most setups are divided into different areas, with each area housing plants in different stages of development. A flowering room is one example of this.
In a basic indoor growing setup, you might have two dedicated spaces: a veg room, and a flowering room. Of the two, the veg room should be the smaller of the two, as it will be used to hold plants during their initial growth and development but not when they prepare to flower.
The flowering room will be used to hold plants just before, during, and immediately after flowering. This room should be significantly larger than the veg room to account for the larger size of cannabis plants in bloom, and to ensure that lighting systems can be arranged to optimize growth and bud development.
A flowering room can be as simple as a separate area of a home where enough grow lights have been installed to provide ample artificial light. However, growers can also invest in sealed flowering rooms, as well as grow tents and other structures that will allow them better control over flowering and ensure they’re able to deliver the best care for their plants.
Other unique considerations will also need to be made within the flowering room. For instance, cannabis plants will require 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark while flowering, which means that not only will this room need its own lighting system and timer, but also that it will need a physical partition from the veg room.
