As more states legalize marijuana, it is becoming more common for the average person to have an interest in growing their own cannabis plants. In the state of Oregon, every single person is allowed to grow up to 4 mature plans in their household, but so many do not even know where to start. There could be many challenges to growing cannabis in your own dwelling; light conditions, small apartment space, no backyard, closet too small, the list can go on for days and we haven’t even pointed out the obvious that it could just be confusing to understand what steps need to be taken to ensure a healthy flowered plant.
And that is why My Urban Greenhouse has created the simplest and most sophisticated All-In-One grow system, The HomeGro. This system is so simple that is requires less than 10 minutes a week of your time, and only 2 trims for the entire growth period! The best part of there system is that they come equipped with LED lights, saving up to 70% of the energy that would normally be used for a system like this. My Urban Greenhouse has created a plug and play solution for the novice grower, and it’s sexy to boot!
There are two models, both come with every single thing you would need from Ikea-style directions for the easy construction, LED lights, water and air pumps, grow beds and sump, grow structure, timers, controls, and nutrients for one full cycle. The smaller, sea of green style, HomeGro SOG, which is pictured above, has the ability to grow four plants. It uses a SCROG system and takes approximately 2-3 months for a full cycle. One customer using the SOG model was able to turn 8 ounces out of their 4 plants. This model is small enough to fit comfortably on the side of one room or in a closet. The larger HomeGro system, pictured below, manages 2 larger plants, using a flood and drain system. Incorporated in is a fail-safe design that makes the grow system impossible to flood.
The concept for My Urban Greenhouse started when founder Steven Lewis and his partners Brandon Cassens & Andrew Brock had a competition to see who can come up with the most badass automated agriculture/outdoor garden system. They blew that out of the park and worked together to take it to the next level to make a badass greenhouse system. Knowing that they were onto something that they were passionate about, the three went on to spend a year testing lights and figuring out the best configuration for their all inclusive systems. By using LED lights, My Urban Greenhouse is able to offer a customized light spectrum optimized for marijuana…call it their secret sauce based on scientific data on identifying cannabis plant absorption spectrums.
While the HomeGro systems that My Urban Greenhouse has brought to market are great for the novice, do not think for a second that their systems and technology cannot be used by the expert and newly licensed Tier 1 and 2 grow operations. Their LED lights are easily priced out at about $1 a watt and have LED lights that span from 300 Watts (which you will find in the HomeGro SOG) up to 1200 watts. They have worked with commercial grows designing and installing hydroponic systems, and are working towards building relationships with legally licensed grow operations in Oregon.
Steven and his team are ready for just about anything that is brought their way, and excited to bring their knowledge to the table in this emerging CannaBiz industry. 5 years ago when all in one systems were first introduced it brought a great idea to the table, but was not finely tuned to make the end user who did not know much comfortable. My Urban Greenhouse is here to remove the stigma that surrounds that notion and help everyone start growing.
