After creating a new batch of cannabis plants, a Grow Technician should immediately label the batch with batch ID tags, individual plant ID tags, or both. Batch and plant labelling practices differ among cannabis cultivation facilities. Some cultivators do not label plants individually, and instead opt to label plants only at the batch level. However, other cultivators label each plant with a unique plant ID label.
Plant ID labels serve two distinct purposes: First, labels identify each plant by a unique ID number. Secondly, and most importantly, each label includes a unique barcode that Grow Technicians can scan to interact with the plant through the Gun App.
Follow the steps below to print a range of plant ID labels for multiple plants in a single batch. This process is also possible through the Gun App.
