Creating Plant Recipes
A step-by-step guide to Creating Plant Recipes
Just like a recipe in a cookbook, a Plant Recipe provides the ingredients and methods for growing your plants.
We’ve developed Blakthumb’s plant recipe library to help enhance the tracking of strains and varieties throughout a plant's life cycle. The ‘Plant Recipe’ feature is a library of all the strains/ varieties you grow, with all of the preferred environment and plant settings for each strain/ variety.
As you expand your operations, your environment may change, which means the plant recipe may need changing too. You may find you have several plant recipes set-up for the same strain/ variety because the environment or nutrient settings are different depending where you’re growing it. We recommend that you create a new recipe if you intend to grow your plants in different locations or within different environments. For example if you have a fully controlled environment, greenhouse and outdoor options for growing your plants you may set-up the same strain/ variety as the following: OG Kush Indoor, OG Kush Greenhouse, OG Kush Outdoor
Plant Recipes help you keep records of R&D activities so that you can adapt recipes until you have perfected your formula. Another advantage of setting up Plant Recipes allows you to create a Plant Cycle/ Run almost instantly!
Step 1: ‘Plant recipes’ are located in the overview menu on the left hand side of your screen
Step 2: After selection you will be redirected to the ‘Plant Recipes’ library. To add a new plant recipe select the ‘+ Create'.
Step 3: A box will appear and you will be prompted to fill in the data for your Plant Recipe.
Blakthumb comes with over 5,600 strains/ varieties built into the system to help you build your Plant Recipes faster.
In the data fields, enter:
On completion, click on 'Create' and the plant recipe will show up in the Plant Recipe library.
While setting up your Plant Recipes might seem like a task to start with, you will get the time saving benefit almost immediately. Creating a Plant Cycle from a recipe can be done in a couple of clicks, but if you start from scratch each time, you’re having to re-enter the same data again and again. The other benefit of creating from a recipe means you will get more accurate insights on your cultivation and the performance of varieties or strains.
