Ready for Christmas? Here's a Holiday Checklist

 

Before you break for Christmas, make sure you stock up on the essentials. Here are a few bits you’ll probably need.

 

1. Nutrients & nutrient management

 

If you’re running low on the basics, don’t cut it fine – stock up now. You’ll eventually use any nutrients and spares that you buy anyway – why risk running out over Christmas?

 

Nutrients & boosters

Pipettes

Syringes

pH Up

pH Down

 

Don’t forget that nutrients can sometimes crystallise if they get too cold. Store yours at room temperature, ideally in a dark place.

 

2. Spares and replacements

 

It never hurts to have a back up! Especially is it's a devices your entire crop depends on.

 

Timers

Lamps

Pumps

Odour control (like ONA blocks)

 

3. Prepare to be away

 

If you’re going away over Christmas, make sure you automate feeding in advance (if your growing system doesn't already do this). A holiday watering kit should do the job. Or you can set up a custom drip system.

 

4. Prepare for a new crop

 

If you’re not growing yet, Christmas is a good time to get your grow room ready for a new cycle.
