Eye Safety in Your Grow: Method Seven

Eye Safety and Your Grow Room

Do you like seeing the world around you? Sure that is a dumb question with an obvious answer. But maybe you haven’t considered how you have been jeopardizing your sight literally every time you walk in to your grow unprotected. What is equally important for serious growers is the ability to quickly and accurately identify nutrient issues. To do this, growers rely on their eyesight to detect coloring issues. The light in your grow room distorts the colors reflected by your plants, and may be throwing you off the trail of the real offender. This is where superior color balancing technology comes in to play in a big way! Don’t let ignorance risk your sight or your yield.
