Cannabis containers are not all optimal for growing
Posted on: March 8th, 2019
As with any other crop under the watchful eyes of professional growers, there’s an art to properly cultivating cannabis in order to yield the highest quality and the healthiest plants.
From sunlight and warmth, to water, humidity and nutrients – understanding the delicate balance needed for cultivation is what sets experienced cannabis growers apart from the amateurs.
The most important thing to remember is that cannabis plants will never thrive without a safe, healthy root system. That means choosing the right container is critical.
Growers know the importance of the right container
Many times, growers new to the industry will turn to containers that are readily available and often utilized for other growing techniques. But while the selection might seem endless, not all available containers on the market are suited for the unique growing circumstances of cannabis.
- Clay pots are too labor intensive to move and have poor drainage.
- Fabric pots provide little in the way of support and often dry out too quickly.
- Air pots require more maintenance and tend to be the most expensive.
Which is why many growers turn to traditional plastic containers, which are economical and allow root systems to thrive with optimal access to water, oxygen and nutrients.
The HC Companies is a leader in the manufacturing of horticultural containers. Our dedicated cannabis plastic and fiber containers are designed to suit the unique needs of cannabis growers. Our trusted and highly respected brand suite has been servicing the United States and Canada – producing containers close to where your business does business.
Introducing the Rapid Stack™ Container!
Rapid Stack™ is the next generation of plant technology, allowing for quick and easy transplanting with no root shock or damage to the plant. When the plant outgrows its container, the bottom of the pot can easily and cleanly be removed, thus exposing the root system. Then, simply stack it on top of another container (or in the ground). The roots will naturally continue to grow down and out to fill the new space provided without the acclimation period associated with replanting. Watch the video below to see exactly how it works!
