Since we are all about doing the right thing from the start, let’s talk about how you are going to catch all of that light from the edges and verges of your marijuana grow, and reflect it right back to your happy, healthy marijuana plants. We are going to talk about how to achieve optimum reflective gains, and the best materials you should be using in order to achieve that excellent, consistent “all plant” grow. In the confines of your grow room you can actually reflect more light to the undersides and sides of your marijuana plants than you can in the wild, or the garden. Just imagine plants that are budding from every possible angle in the flowering phase, and you will have an idea of what I am talking about.
Foylon, the best reflective material for your marijuana grow room
It might be a little bit harder to find, but it is worth the effort. Foylon is not a treated paper, like Mylar is; it is more of a permeated fabric. That makes it far more durable, re-usable and easy to work with. Foylon has a superior reflective coating that actually reflects every bit as high of a percentage as Mylar, and also reflects available light far more evenly, thus reducing the possibility of overheating, spot focusing, and uneven dispersal of light. That makes your marijuana grow far more consistent from plant to plant, and that my friends will increase your productivity. More bud means more money in the long run, so you cannot go wrong with the right reflective material.
Let’s talk about the walls of your marijuana grow room
While we are on the topic of your reflective edges and maximizing all available growing space, let’s talk about the walls of your growing room. You need to have your walls as close to the plants as you can. Remember the farther you push out the walls of your grow room, the more square footage your lights have to cover, and the more you are messing up your ratio of lumens to square footage. As you know, you want more light per square footage, so keep your grow room walls in tight. This does not mean that they should touch the plants, but they should be very close. Leave enough space for the reflective material to do its job, while ensuring you aren’t pushing things out so far that you are messing up your lumens ratio.
