Water is a plant’s lifeline, and an industrial humidification system is designed to keep cannabis facilities functioning properly without the stress of creating optimum humidity. There are several reasons why humidification systems promote healthy plant growth, such as:
1. Prevent Root Rot
Humidification systems help prevent the dreaded root rot. Root rot is caused by insufficient water and oxygen, causing the plant to wilt and look rather sickly. Overwatering and under-watering are two of the most common causes of root rot, so when the humidity levels are too high or low, the risk of root rot increases.
Root rot is contagious and can infect your entire crop if not addressed right away. By controlling your humidity levels with FogCo’s humidification systems, you can prevent root rot and avoid major financial setbacks.
2. Reduce Mold Risk
Mold is dangerous for plants and humans. Like root rot, mold can spread to neighboring cannabis plants within your facility. Molds like Aspergillus and Penicillium can be found indoors, can destroy your crop, and can harm your health.
Maintaining your indoor humidity levels and vapor pressure deficit (VPD) will help prevent your plants from becoming susceptible to mold growth and will keep you and your team safe from breathing in dangerous spores.
3. Increase Savings
Proper humidification is vital for protecting your crop from infectious diseases—but it’s also a way to protect your wallet. If you are concerned about increased utility bills after installing your facility’s new climate control system, don’t be.
A Fogco humidification system can save you money by preventing damage to your cannabis facility’s machinery and electronics through the regulation of moisture levels. Since a humidification system helps ensure correct temperatures, the benefits of a Fogco system can appear as decreased utility costs over time.
