Change is inevitable.

A universal truth, but one we often shy away from in life, work, and the grow.

You see, change is uncomfortable.

Which means, if you are going to make a change, it’s important to make it worthwhile.

What criteria should cannabis growers use to evaluate potential changes to their processes?

11 Things To Keep In Mind—And Questions To Ask Yourself as a Grower—When Considering A Change:

  1. Daily Involvement (What’s the workflow like?)
  2. Time Commitment (How long to implement and dial in?)
  3. Space (How much space does it require?
  4. Costs (What will it cost to try/learn?)
  5. Yields (How will this affect total harvest?
  6. Quality (What are you looking to improve?)
  7. End Game (What are you growing for?)
  8. End User (Who will consume what you grow?)
  9. Genetics (Does your stable have special needs?)
  10. Personal Interest (Are you curious?)
  11. Other Growers (Is anyone else doing it?)

What else?

Which aspect(s) should growers give the most priority to?

At the end of the day, the decision comes down to how changes will impact your grow, and how much tolerance you have for growing pains along the way.

If you’ve recently changed your growing style (or just started and had to make that decision for the first time), why did you pick the style you chose? (Leave a reply in the comments)
