My grow room air purifier catches any spores that get in whenever the door opens

When I started using weather apps 10 years ago, I was impressed by having real time radar and weather forecasting at a moment’s notice in my pocket.

It’s helpful if you’re out and trying to avoid a rain storm, as the weather app will show you what direction the storm is headed in and the severity of it as well.

This could be helpful to postpone a beach outing or some other outdoor activity. But the weather apps these days go a step further and give me real time allergen levels for common outdoor allergens. There are measurements for dust, mold, ragweed pollen, tree pollen, and grass pollen. Aside from being able to plan my activities so my respiratory allergies aren’t aggravated, it also gives me a warning with my marijuana grow operation. I have a bunch of plants in a shed that I have set up for climate control. This keeps the air cool and dry inside, while also filtering any airborne allergens or contaminants that could get on my cannabis plants while they’re growing. Without my grow room air purifier, I can only imagine what sort of allergens would be getting on my plants every time I walk in from outdoors. The cannabis plants act like sponges for allergens, and that’s why it’s so easy to buy marijuana flower buds from a dispensary and detect a hint of mustiness in its aroma. If I can grow my own cannabis, I feel like I can do a better job preventing contamination with things like spores, dust, and pollen. You have to think about bacteria as well.
