Air purification is one of the most overlooked variables of an indoor growing operation since most airborne pathogens are invisible, but ignoring this factor could invite all sorts of problems into the growing room.
Indoor horticulturists spend a lot of time and money trying to provide ideal environmental conditions for their crops. Using various devices and equipment, growers are able to create artificial light energy, irrigation or hydroponic systems, and experiment with and fine-tune each variable that can affect a growing room’s performance until the optimal parameters are found.
One variable that more gardeners are paying closer attention to is the air quality within the garden. Aside from temperature and humidity, there are other elements in the air that could impact a high-performance indoor garden. In fact, many of the pathogens that enter an indoor garden do so through the air. Without proper air purification, an indoor horticulturist could be inviting potential problems into the growing room and garden.
