For a super smart urban ag idea, why not bring the small greenhouse indoors for the cold months. Our indoor grow systems can be in the form of a basement grow room or a garage grow room. Or, if the indoor grow setup is small enough, we can really fit it anywhere. Then, we would have an indoor greenhouse with grow lights. And, those indoor grow lights would be on grow light movers to maximize their potential. For the overall grow room setup, this would be similar to the indoor grow tents available. But, it would be more like a greenhouse tent. And, it’s making use of grow equipment that we already have that would otherwise be sitting out in the snow with the cover off. So, let’s put this growing equipment to use. Let’s make it an indoor greenhouse with grow lights on light movers.
A fresh start without outside contamination in our indoor growing systems
First to mention, we want to plan ahead for our indoor grow systems, starting fresh from clones or seed. The reason for that is what is already outside often includes gnats and other bugs. So, starting with a new indoor grow setup means we are bug free as we plan out the grow room design of our greenhouse tent. Obviously, that also means we are green and natural and organic. And, the fresh start without outside contamination in our indoor growing systems makes it all that much easier.
A grow light mover lets us get closer to the plant canopy for a much higher PAR and a more even ppfd
The indoor grow lights are the most important part of the indoor grow room setup. So, we want to be aware of the quality, including the PAR and specifically, the ppfd. For a general idea, indoor grow room design means all indoor plant light comes from our doing. In other words, there is zero sunlight. So, we take our quality indoor grow lights and we move them on light movers to get an even better grow light system. It’s the only way to get a closer footprint of grow lamp interaction. And, that’s for all the grow light systems including LightRail 3.5 Kits, LightRail 4.0 Kits and LightRail 4.20 Kits. that’s without the hot spots that stationary indoor grow lights will give us. So, a grow light mover lets us get closer to the plant canopy with a much higher, consistent ppfd ready. This indoor grow light ppfd chart shows how that works.
The indoor greenhouse with grow lights on light movers gives us healthier plants and better yields
That’s an example of grow lamp bravery that we can only do with LightRail light movers. It’s the only way to get Inverse Square Law to be working for us, while all stationary indoor grow lights have that scientific principle working against them. So without the hot spots, we can get closer. And, we can, therefore, produce more because our grow light systems are maximized. Specifically, the indoor greenhouse with grow lights on light movers gives us healthier plants, faster growth and much better yields. Quality indoor plant light is the key to the results we want.
We can cover about 30% more horizontal space
Also by moving our grow light systems, we get a more even output of indoor plant light to more of the leaves. And, at the same time, we can cover about 30% more horizontal space. Of course, that number depends on many variables including the number of stationary lights being used as a benchmark. So, not only are we getting our indoor growing systems to penetrate to more of the leaves with better, angled indoor grow light coverage, but we also see this. We get efficiency out of our growing equipment. In other words, we get our grow light system supercharged. There is nothing smarter than taking the most important variable to the indoor grow setup, the grow light system and then maximizing it. And, that’s by getting our grow light systems closer for maximum PAR while getting a better quality light dispersed efficiently to more of the leaves. In other words, the very best grow lights move.
The indoor greenhouse with grow lights on light movers has a very clever hanging system available and this is easy to set up. They are called LightRail Light Mover Rail Hanger Brackets for Greenhouses and Grow Tents. And, these grow equipment hangers are compatible with greenhouse tent tubing up to 1.5 inches in diameter. So, it makes setting up our greenhouse lights on the light mover rail really simple to do.
Bring the greenhouse indoors as an indoor grow room setup
Half the year is challenging to outdoor greenhouse growing. For some places, it’s more like eight months of cold weather. Because of that extended downtime, it makes sense to bring the greenhouse indoors as an indoor grow room setup. The indoor greenhouse with grow lights on light movers is the answer to being able to grow year round. Whether we have a basement grow room, a garage grow room or any other available space for our grow room kit, we can use that space. With a little grow room design and a fresh start by growing from clones or seed, we can use our existing growing equipment. And, with greenhouse lights on light movers, we will have the best grow lights possible. And, our results will be healthier plants with faster growth and much better yields.
