The Dirty Dozen

1. Thinking a horticulture degree and/or background equates to cannabis growing experience.
2. Lack of proper facility design: if your overall design, layout, and equipment don’t work cohesively after you are operational, it’s too late.
3. Obtaining unstable genetics from breeders.
4. Over/under nutrient application and watering of plants.
5. Inconsistent cycled cultivation and harvest timelines.
6. Improper propagation methodologies.
7. Growing without an established integrated pest management schedule.
8. Operating without a field tested nutrient regimen for cannabis cultivation.
9. Not understanding the tight balance between environmental controls, fertilization, integrated pest management, watering, along with the correct personnel training and initiative required to address the balance.
10. Not establishing a strong network of, and relationships with, equipment suppliers.
11. Waiting until the last minute to address operational issues such as safety and compliance regulations, plant health, and equipment failures.
12. Not understanding the payoff of setting the bar as high as possible during your first inspection.
