Attention to detail and an appreciation for timing are signature traits of a true grower.
Accomplishing tasks on-time helps usher along the crop production cycle, and great attention to detail allows the grower to decide when to realize these crucial tasks.
Cultivation activities such as transplanting, irrigating, pruning, and de-leafing are highly dependent on the plant's readiness and the day of the crop cycle. Pushing essential tasks until the next day (or the following week) can result in high labor costs and less-than-ideal plants.
When interviewing your next potential head grower, make sure to drill down on the importance of these two key factors. If they don't share a mutual respect for the importance of timing and attention to detail, move on.
Your plants and your bottom line will thank you.
