Indoor Harvest Corp Selected by Alamo CBD to Design-Build Pharmaceutical Production Facility in Texas – GlobeNewswire (press release)

HOUSTON, June 30, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Indoor Harvest Corp (OTCQB:INQD), through its brand name Indoor Harvest®, is a full service, state-of-the-art design-build engineering firm for the indoor and vertical farming industry. The company provides production platforms, mechanical systems and complete custom designed build outs for both greenhouse and building integrated agriculture grows. The Company is pleased to announce it has received a letter of intent from Alamo CBD to design and build its state-of-the-art pharmaceutical CBD production facility in Texas.

The expected facility, at 17,500 square feet, would be designed from the ground up utilizing our high pressure aeroponic platform. The facility is planned to be constructed in Wilson County, Texas and would produce pharmaceutical grade Cannabidiol under the Texas Compassionate Use Act.

“Not only are we excited to work with the team at Alamo CBD to design and build their facility, together we also successfully lobbied the State to amend a section in the Texas Compassionate Use Act that would have made advanced technologies such as aeroponics a non approved cultivation method in the State. We argued that methods such as aeroponics are superior in many ways to traditional organic growing and in fact will yield high quality pharmaceutical products, even though not considered organic according to the UDSA’s standards.  Under the final Act as adopted, our growing methods would be allowed in Texas,” stated Chad Sykes, CEO and founder of Indoor Harvest.

Dr. Lang Coleman, CEO of Alamo CBD, said “We are very pleased to be working with the professionals at Indoor Harvest.  We were introduced to Indoor Harvest by the Texas Cannabis Industry Association and we can’t thank the TCIA enough for that introduction.  Our team met with John (Zimmerman) and Chad (Sykes) and simply felt that their knowledge of crop production systems and building design is exactly what we need to move forward with our facility.”

Consistent with the SEC’s April 2013 guidance on using social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter to make corporate disclosures and announce key information in compliance with Regulation FD, Indoor Harvest is alerting investors and other members of the general public that Indoor Harvest will provide weekly updates on operations and progress through its social media on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.

Americas Best Garden CenterThough hydroponics is a relatively new growing method, its history is rooted in water-based horticulture.

For example, the mythical Hanging Gardens of Babylon supposedly irrigated its trees and shrubs with water channels.

And in 1100 AD, Mesoamericans created artificial islands called “chinampas” near modern-day Mexico City that are still in use today.

Modern hydroponics was developed in the late 1920s and tested as a source of fresh food for the U.S. Air Force during World War II.  A few decades of technology improvement later, a fasmily can now grow their own hydroponic vegetables and herbs at home.

Paul, the owner and founder of Hydroponics Unlimited, started gardening outdoors in high school.  His journey in indoor gardening began several years later in 1988.

“The first hydroponics store to open in the entire country wasn’t far from my home,” Paul said. “It was there I received my first lessons in hydroponics and bought everything I needed to start my own hydroponics system.”

Paul’s interest in hydroponics persisted for the next 18 years. With his friends’ encouragement, he opened Palmdale Hydroponics in 2006.

Paul was the sole employee of Palmdale Hydroponics until 2007, when his wife, Victoria, joined the company. In 2009, Paul and Victoria launched HydroponicsUnlimited.com. The online store allows them to reach out to customers all over the United States.

In 2010, the store moved to a larger location and changed its name to America’s Best Hydroponics and Garden Center.

Since then, America’s Best Hydroponics has provided thousands of products and the latest education to the local hydroponics community. Paul and his knowledgeable crew are ready to help beginner and veteran growers yield a successful crop.

Correctly Spacing Plants in Your Indoor Garden

If you’re setting up an indoor garden, the spacing of plants can be a critical factor underlying how much your garden yields. We have prepared this article to outline some of the basic ways that plant spacing effects light absorption, and some tips to optimize your garden’s success.

When light shines on a garden, the leaves near the top of the plants get more intense light than the leaves at the bottom. The top leaves shade the bottom leaves and absorb energy, making less light available to lower leaves. If the lower leaves do not receive enough light, they will yellow and die. Tall six-foot plants take longer to grow and have higher overall yields than shorter four-foot plants, but the yield will be about the same.

Atleast 99 two-week-old seedlings or cuttings can be huddled directly under a singele 400-watt HID. The young plants will need more space as they grow. If packed too closely together, plants sense the shortage of space and do not grow to their maximum potential. Leaves from one plant shade another plant’s foliage and slow overall plant growth. it is very important to space young plants just far enough apart so their leaves do not touch or touch very litlle. This will keep the shading to a minimum and growth to a maximum. Check and alter the spacing every few days. Eight to sixteen mature tomato plants three to four months old will completely fill the space under one 1000-watt HID. Plants can absorb light only if it falls on their leaves. Plants must be spaced so their leaves do not overlap too much. Yield increases very little when plants are crowded. Plants also stretch for light which makes less efficient use of intense light.

Best number of plants per square foot is often a matter of experimenting to find the magic number for your garden. In general each 40-inch square of space will hold from 16 to 32 plants.

Common Problems Facing Indoor Gardens

Is something going wrong in your indoor garden despite all of your hard work? Take a look at this list of the most common problems that can arise when gardening indoors.

Lack of Ventilation: Leaves cannot function correctly without a steady supply of fresh air; Poor ventilation causes slow growth and poor absorption of water and nutrients.Inadequate Lighting: This can slow down photosynthesis which leads to poor use of nutrients, and give the plants a scrawny appearance.Too High / Too Low Humidity: Either one of these conditions will cause  stress to the plants from over-consumption or under-consumption of water.Temparature: A low or high temperature can slow a plant’s growth, and wide temperature fluctuations of more than 15 to 20 degrees can retard growth altogether.Overwaterting / Underwatering: Overwatering prevents the roots from taking in air, severely limiting nutrient intake and possibly causing them to rot. Underwatering slows the transport of nutrients, ultimately leading to sickly / dying roots.Light Burns: Foliage burned by HID Lamps is at an increased risk of attack from pests and disease.Indoor Air Pollution: This can slow plant growth to a crawl. Make an effort to check for vaporization from building materials and other chemical air leaks.Hot Soil: Soil over 90 degrees can cause harm to a plant’s roots.Roots Receving Direct Light: Roots require a dark environment; Light shining through to them can turn them green and their function will slow significantly.

The Importance of Fresh Air to Your Indoor Garden

Fresh air is an essential yet often overlooked asset to your Indoor Garden, and it can be the difference between success and failure.

Outdoor crops have a supply of air packed with CO2 that is constantly being refreshed by the wind. They also have rain to wash away accumulated dust and pollutants. Carbon Dioxide and Oxygen are both necessary to a plant’s growth: Carbon Dioxide combines with light energy and water to form sugars that are metabolized by the plant, while oxygen is used for respiration, burning of carbohydrates, and nutrient absorption in the roots.

An Indoor Garden must be specifically calibrated to replicate the outdoor atmosphere, and most Gardeners must take the time to set up an adequate ventilation system. Three factors effect air circulation, stomata, ventilation, and circulation.

Stomata are essentially a plant’s nostrils, they are used to inhale CO2 and release oxygen. Stomata can be clogged easily by dirt or other pollutants in the air, and pesticide sprays. To avoid clogging stomata, spray foliage with tepid water a day or two after spraying with pesticides, fungicides, or nutrient solution.

Air circulation is important because when air stands still plants can use up all of the CO2 rich air surrounding leafs in minutes, creating dead air zones. This can also lead to an easier infiltration by fungus and insects. To avoid this, you may want to keep a door or window open and/or install an oscillating circulation fan to keep up a constant circulation of air currents.

Ventilation is important to consider as well to get rid of exhaust air and bring in a supply of fresh air. An open window and a fan may be adequate in bringing in fresh air, but if no vent opening is available one must be created. Ventilation ducts and fans can be used to push or pull air into a room, and roof vents are a practical and discreet option as well.

5 Indoor gardening tips you can try out for the winter – Ecofriend

Winters are here and there’ll be no real way to get outside into the garden to grow fresh greens. If you’re seeking an alternative, consider growing greens (plants and vegetables) indoors. In the winters, plants will not just clean the air inside the house, but will also provide you and your family some healthy, organic foods grown yourself.

Indoor gardening can also be useful for city dwellers who do not have enough gardening space, or in many cases, don’t even have balconies. For growing indoors and reaping benefits out of it, you don’t necessarily have to be a farmer; indoor gardening does not require additional skills and takes up as much space (at home) as you’re willing to give it. Here are tips by Dr Prem Jagyasi and his team members to go about gardening indoors.

Using recycled wine bottles vertically

Using recycled wine bottles vertically

Empty wine bottles don’t find a lot of reuse purpose at home. But products likeBioCity’s indoor vertical veggie garden can help. Developed by designers at BioCity, Montreal, the beautiful installation uses reclaimed wine bottles which can be filled with soil to grow anything from cherry tomatoes to strawberries. Ideal for growing all types of veggies indoors, the contraptions is even more exciting since it’s cost effective and does not require a lot of space.

Pod garden system

Pod garden system

Designed by a group of students, who call themselves Greenfingers, the Pod garden system is a compact gardening system for the indoors. The system developed at the University of Auckland uses Fogponics for growing greens indoors. Fogponics is a subset of hydroponics, which employs nutrition rich solution to transfer nutrition to suspended plant roots through vaporization. Interestingly, one can join a couple of pod’s together (depending on the space available) to grow additional plants.

Mason jar garden

Mason jar garden

Developed by Summer Rayne Oakes, the creative DIY gardening project is a wonderful herb garden that can be placed anywhere in the house. The amazingly nifty creation has areclaimed wood strips mounted onto the wall. The strips have inexpensive plumbing parts attached to it, which can be used to fasten jars used for gardening. The indoor vertical garden is completely eco-friendly and easy to make, in case you want to try your hands at building one.

Vertical Fogponic garden

Vertical Fogponic garden

Growing food indoor is generally dependent on the kind of space you have available. When space is a crunch, a vertical gardening system indoor can be a viable alternative. Similar to the Pod garden system, this vertical garden (Fogponic Unit) also uses Fogponics for growing veggies and plants indoors. The vertical planting system allows nutrition to reach the suspending plant roots through vapors. All kinds of veggies and plants can be grown in this Fogponic Unit.

Creative folding window gardening system

Creative folding window gardening system

Living in an apartment without a garden or balcony can have their own advantage, but they leave you with no place to grow plants and vegetables in case you’re interested. If you too live in a small apartment deprived of an outdoor space, try this DIY project to grow a garden indoors.

The folding window garden is brainchild of French designers Barreau&Charbonnet. The pivoting window garden dubbed VoletVégétal lets you maximize the space available. It allows you to place your garden on the window, which can either be laid out flat in open view or kept upright in closed position. In case you’re interested, you can create your own pivoting window frame which can hold planters.

There are endless ways you can transform everyday household items into clever gardening systems for indoor gardening. It’s only about willingness to have a garden that you can use to grow your own organic veggies or beautiful flowers.
