Transporting plants is easy, but acclimating them to new environments can be tricky.

Light intensity, temperature, wind, and humidity can vary drastically between grow locations.

Although humans may not be able to detect the difference, plants definitely can. 

It's common for indoor plants to wilt and turn yellow when transitioned from a vegetative growth room to a flowering growth room if the plants have not been acclimated to the stronger lights and drier atmosphere. 

Outdoors, plants moved from a shaded greenhouse to the open field are exposed to strong winds that they previously did not need to contend with. 

Smart growers anticipate this and plan accordingly. 

It's better to take one week to slowly acclimate plants than waste three weeks repairing damaged ones.
