Cultivation, HVAC, and Vapor Pressure Deficit: Best practices for creating the optimal grow environment

Levi Quinn, P.E., LEED GA

Each stage of the cannabis plant lifecycle requires exacting humidity and temperatures to grow ideal product, and your HVAC system is the most crucial element for indoor cannabis cultivation and controlling the cannabis ecosystem. Levi Quinn demonstrates best practices for HVAC design in cannabis cultivation including Vapor Pressure Deficit (VPD) and how it relates to the optimal grow room environment. He details other equipment and control factors that affect humidity and temperature, how they can they be managed, and why each are important. Described in the most basic terminology: Consistent VPD = Consistent plant transpiration = Consistent plant growth.
