Our favorite quote from Mary Armstrong’s interview about growing cannabis with 314 Garden Supply:
Jeff (12:05): Now you specifically said LED lights, why LED over, say, high-pressured sodium or some other kind of light?
Mary: LED is lower cost and it won’t raise the temperatures of that small space too much.
Jeff: So you might not need as much ventilation; you could get by with a smaller fan using LED lights, as opposed to multiple lights using high-pressured sodium?
Mary: Correct. When you’re growing in a small space, you want nice clean and cool air coming in and the air that might contain pathogens, bacteria, pests, — that’s going to be harder for the plant to thrive in — going out.
