Indoor grow rooms should recreate the conditions of the outdoors so that plants will thrive. One aspect of this regulation is temperature. All plants have different “sweet spot” temperatures for optimal growth, so it’s important to understand the plant itself. As a rule of thumb, hotter temperatures may stunt growth while colder temperatures may slow down photosynthesis. To monitor this temperature, growers should take readings from throughout the room to reduce possible hot or cold zone and ensure consistency.
- Growing plants indoors requires you to recreate the plants natural environment, which includes optimal growing temperature.
- When taking the temperature of the grow room, it’s important to check different spots within the room to ensure that there isn’t hot, or cold spots.
- Overly warm temperatures inside tend to hinder plant growth and flowering, while overly cold temperatures have negative consequences for photosynthesis.
“Again, because the plant is growing in an indoor environment you have the opportunity to dial into this sweet spot and reach the plants maximum potential.”
