AROYA Office Hours Episode Twenty-One (5/12): Data, Optimizing Recipes, and Why We Don't Say 'Flush'
Can you believe we've had twenty one episodes of AROYA Office Hours LIVE already? Time really does fly when you're learning this much about cultivation!
This week Phil and Jason shared their knowledge about EC, pH, and datalogging. Jason explained why we try to avoid the word "flush" here at AROYA, and a better term for it. Then we went deep into the platform.
Learn about the basics of Recipes, Harvest Groups, and how AROYA helps cultivators to dial in on craft cultivars, and read up on some of the highlights from our last virtual sesh below!
Collect, record, analyze, and then grow even better.
“There is a ginormous opportunity to learn and improve, and that’s why we created Harvest Groups—to collect data in that record and then compare it yourself every single time.” -- Phil Malmquist
It's time to retire the term "nutrient burn"
“A lot of times, historically people have referred to things as ‘nutrient burn.’ And usually in cannabis, unless you're extraordinarily high, you'll see that the plants are tolerant. And so what you're probably seeing is actually a nutrient imbalance—and a number of things can cause that nutrient imbalance . . .” -- Jason Van Leuven
Let's talk about uniformity . . .
“It comes down to what I call ‘uniformity.’ Uniformity is one point in time—how does a similar plant compare to a similar plant, if it’s the same strain? So if all of the control processes were done well, then every plant within one strain would be on a very skinny standard deviation.” -- Jason
A quick rundown on Recipes.
“Your grow template, which is what we call a ‘recipe,’ gives you a better idea on how projectable the growth of those plants could be. And if we are going to change things, we can highlight, take a look at those changes, improve the output and performance of that crop . . .” -- Jason
Alerts ranges let you keep tabs on your plants 24/7.
“We offer alerts for almost any type of sensor data that we collect. So in this case, keeping an eye on EC temperature, the substrate’s water content, light, absolute humidity, relative humidity, air temperature, VPD . . . Set that thing up with alert ranges, and it'll just keep tabs on making sure that all your processes are being done as expected.” -- Jason
