8.1 Final Project: Designing an Advanced Indoor Cannabis Home Grow Operation

Cartier April 11, 2023

The final project of this course is an opportunity for you to apply the knowledge and skills you’ve gained throughout the course to design an advanced indoor cannabis home grow operation. You aim to create a comprehensive plan that maximizes yields, maintains optimal plant health, and adheres to safety and legal guidelines.

  1. Project objectives: Your advanced indoor cannabis home grow operation plan should address the following key objectives:
    • Maximizing yields through effective plant management, environmental control, and CO2 enrichment.
    • Ensuring plant health and productivity by implementing appropriate soil selection, nutrient management, and pest and disease control strategies.
    • Implementing proper harvesting, trimming, curing, and storage techniques to preserve the potency and quality of your cannabis harvest.
    • Adhering to safety guidelines and legal requirements for cannabis cultivation in your jurisdiction.
  2. Project components: Your final project should include detailed plans for each of the following components:
    • Grow space layout and design: Plan your grow space layout, including the arrangement of plants, lighting, ventilation, and other equipment.
    • Soil selection and preparation: Choose a suitable soil product and discuss any necessary amendments to optimize the growing medium.
    • Nutrient management: Develop a nutrient-feeding schedule and describe the strategies you’ll use to monitor and address nutrient deficiencies.
    • Environmental control: Plan your temperature, humidity, and CO2 management strategies, including the equipment you’ll use to monitor and control these factors.
    • Plant management techniques: Describe the plant training methods and other techniques you’ll use to maximize yields, such as Low-Stress Training (LST), High-Stress Training (HST), and Screen of Green (ScrOG).
    • Pest and disease management: Outline your Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach, including prevention, monitoring, and control strategies.
    • Harvesting, trimming, curing, and storage: Detail your plans for harvesting, trimming, curing, and storing your cannabis harvest to ensure optimal potency and quality.
    • Maintenance and cleaning: Explain how you’ll maintain and clean your equipment, including trimming tools and grow space components.
    • Safety and legal considerations: Address any safety measures you’ll implement and ensure your plan complies with relevant legal requirements.
  3. Presentation format: Present your final project as a written report, slideshow presentation, or video, including visual aids such as diagrams, illustrations, or photos, as appropriate. Your presentation should be clear, concise, and well-organized, demonstrating your understanding of the course material and your ability to apply it in a practical context.
  4. Evaluation criteria: Your final project will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
    • Completeness: Have you addressed all project objectives and components in your plan?
    • Accuracy: Does your plan demonstrate a correct understanding of the course material?
    • Practicality: Is your plan feasible and likely to produce successful results in a real-world context?
    • Creativity: Have you incorporated innovative ideas or approaches in your plan?
    • Presentation: Is your project well-presented, with clear explanations and effective visual aids?

Completing this final project will demonstrate your mastery of advanced indoor cannabis home grow operation concepts and techniques. Your comprehensive plan will serve as a valuable resource for your own cultivation endeavors or as a portfolio piece to showcase your expertise in the field.
