3 Fundamental Types of grow lights used for indoor urban farming you should know about

If you are growing in small spaces or climates with less light it may make more sense f or you to try growing indoors vs outdoors. 

There are some differences you should know about when urban farming indoors for the first time. 

One of the key difference makers for any indoor urban farming project is your lighting.You're almost certainly going to need some type of grow light.

Why? 

Grow lights will help solve one of two problems: they will either

1) supplement sunlight or in some cases
2) completely replace direct sunlight.

Grow lights however don't always have to mimic sunlight exactly. 

In some applications, grow lights will even be designed to optimize growth and improve over sunlight. (see diagram below) [click to continue...]

3 Must-have urban farming tools that cost less than 100 dollars

3 Must have urban farming tools that cost less than 100 dollars

One of the most frustrating aspects of starting an urban farming project for a beginner is the risk of failure when starting out.

Beginners all too often see:

- diseased and spindly plants
- pests
- wilting
- odd tasting crops (if any grow) 

The result? 

Plants that are not great to look at, much less eat...

But there is a solution to many of these problems that most urban farming beginners (or even more experienced veterans) may not know or completely understand. [click to continue...]

Famintsyn was the first to use artificial grow lights effectively in agriculture.

These days, grow lights are a key factor for both urban farmers and larger companies.

9 Key Topics Urban Farmers must know: with Graeme Sait, Nutri-tech Solutions

9 Key Topics Urban Farmers must know: with  Graeme Sait, Nutri-tech Solutions

Urban Vine: I guess if you just wanted to start off with sharing a little about Nutri-Tech Solutions and kind of what you guys do, your story and what your role is and we can start there?

G: Sure, I'm the founder of this company, called Nutri-tech solutions, in Australia, we started (the company) 23 years ago, it was a kind of a life changing thing,

I had a daughter who was hit by a car outside of her school, and in a coma for 3 months, and she got worse and worse, had massive brain injuries, then one day, everything went haywire and all the machines were all beeping,

and they said she was going to die within hours, and I kind of made this deal that if she survived, I would do something (to change the world) and not look back,  and shortly after making this deal she came out of a coma, and that was my life changing moment.

I had a sleepless night and came up with the whole concept...I decided to become an expert in nutrition - human, animal, and of course soil nutrition and plant nutrition.

You will never be a productive indoor urban farmer without this essential tool

You will never be a productive indoor urban farmer without this essential tool

If you are new to growing crops (or trying, or planning on trying) in an urban farm, you may at first believe that you'll at least get decent results by planting seedlings and watering occasionally. 

Unfortunately, this philosophy is far from reality.

There are many more factors important in cultivating crops in a small scale indoor environment including but not  limited too: soil acidity, light exposure, humidity, pest control, growing medium, and much more. 

Perfecting all of these challenges can be extremely difficult, even for seasoned experts. But if you are growing indoors, there is one mistake too many beginners make.

Basil is one of the most popular herbs in the world today and is also a popular choice for small scale growing in urban environments.

11 top secret hacks for beginning urban farmers to grow better basil plants

11 Top Secret Hacks for beginning urban farmers to grow better basil plants

Plants are living organisms, just like humans, and let’s face it, just like “eating and sleeping” is an over-simplified plan for you to stay healthy, “planting and watering” is not enough for growing healthy plants, especially in small scale urban farms with limited space and resources. 

The truth is, taking care of an urban farm as a beginner can be just as challenging as taking care of a growing human being for the first time (seriously).

This is no less true with basil [click to continue...]

Why purple LED lighting is ideal for indoor urban farming

Why purple LED lighting is ideal for urban farming

The idea that plants need exposure to daylight for perfect growing conditions has persisted during the sustained growth of urban farming in the past half-decade. 

But, as numerous researchers (and an increasingly large amount of growers) are starting to realize, the concept of sunlight as a necessity is, in fact, a flat out myth. 

Why Purple (a.k.a blue-red) LEDs? 

The technical answer, in a nutshell, is related to the spectrum of color present in different types of light. While good 'ol sunlight contains a variety of color spectra (think rainbows), it turns out that plants only need specific color spectra to grow properly. [click to continue...]
