As more and more people and businesses enter the cannabis cultivation sphere, prices are dropping and the carbon footprint of pot production continues to rise. Mass-produced indoor weed isn’t sustainable and is mostly of questionable quality. “Mom and Pop” grow-ops looking to produce a sustainable product seek viable ways to reduce their dependence on expensive and non-renewable energy in order to create a clean and green alternative to “Diesel” dank. Here are seven ways to lower costs and improve the environment.

UTILIZE PREDATORS

Replace potentially harmful pesticides with beneficial insects and predatory nematodes. For every vegetarian bug that plagues our pot plants, there exists a carnivorous nemesis just waiting to be unleashed. Once you’ve diagnosed your marijuana’s malady, purchase or place an order through the mail for the living solution to your pest problem. Release them as recommended, and then sit back and watch them attack.

SAVE WATER

Using a mulch, such as hay, around your planting beds reduces water waste due to evaporation and allows you to water less frequently. Plants will also be able to use more of the nutrient solution you add to them if you bury your drip-emitting system a few inches below soil level. Rain water collection is also a wonderful way to decrease costs and your dependence on local aquifers.
