Grow pods are an excellent option for rapidly expanding cultivation capacity while simultaneously undergoing a larger facility build-out. Grow pods are ready-to-use, 40-foot-long shipping containers that have been retrofitted into self-contained growing units. They are true plug-and-play cultivation options since they are delivered fully equipped with grow lights, air handling units, and drainage systems. All that is required to begin cultivating is a nearby electrical source and plenty of water, and most suppliers offer a six-week lead time from the date of purchase. Launching cultivation with the help of grow pods can help shave several months off your time to market.
