Grow Technicians use the Grow module's Propagation tab to propagate new plants and batches, and to store information on plant propagation materials such as seeds and Mother plants.

The Propagation tab splits into four sub-tabs: Mothers, Plant Search, Cutting Reports, and Seed Lots.

Mothers

The Mothers sub-tab tracks all Mother plants at the grow facility. A Mother is a plant designated for cloning, one of the primary methods of plant propagation. Grow Technicians take cuttings from Mother plants to grow new batches of genetically identical plants. This is ideal for preserving desirable traits and delivering consistent products to clients.

Usually, Grow Technicians identify plants as Mothers when creating a batch of new plants. However, a Grow Technician can Change a Plant's Mother Status or Change a Batch's Mother Status at any time.

[img mothers]

Sort the index of Mother plants using any one of several fields:

  • Plant: Sorts the list by plant ID numbers.

  • Strain: Sorts the list by cannabis strain.

  • Age: Sorts the list by the Mother plants' age.

  • Location: Sorts the list by grow room location.

To include archived Mothers in the Mother index, click the All radio button. To quickly locate a specific Mother plant, type its plant ID number into the Search bar.

Select a Mother plant from the index to visit its Plant Profile.

Plant Search

The Plant Search sub-tab tracks all plants–including Mother plants–present at the grow facility.

[img plant-search]

Sort the index of plants using any one of several fields:

  • Plant: Sorts the list by plant ID numbers.

  • Strain: Sorts the list by cannabis strain.

  • Age: Sorts the list by the plants' age.

  • Location: Sorts the list by grow room location.

To include archived plants in the plant index, click the All radio button. To quickly locate a specific plant, type its plant ID number into the Search bar.

Select a plant from the index to visit its Plant Profile.

Cutting Reports

The Cutting Reports sub-tab tracks all cutting reports logged by Grow Technicians. A Cutting Report is a record of a cutting event when Grow Technicians take cuttings from one or more Mother plants to create a new batch. Creating a batch from cuttings automatically generates a new Cutting Report, which stores such information as the name of the new batch, the number of Mothers, the number of cuttings taken, and the strain of cannabis.

[img cutting-reports]

Sort the index of cutting reports using either of the following fields:

  • Batch: Sorts the list by batch name.

  • Strain: Sorts the list by cannabis strain.

Select a Cutting Report from the index to visit the Cutting Report's Profile.

Seed Lots

The Seed Lots sub-tab tracks all Seed Lots available at a grow facility. A Seed Lot is a collection of seeds of the same strain used to grow new cannabis plants. Typically, Grow Technicians use plants grown from seeds for phenotype selection or research and development, in the interest of developing the strongest possible Mother plants for production.

Grow Technicians usually store Seed Lots in a Vault Location until the seeds are ready for germination.

[img seed-lots]

The Seed Lots index displays high-level information on each Seed Lot, including the number of seeds in the Seed Lot, the aggregate weight of all seeds in the Seed Lot, and the Seed Lot's ID number, name, cannabis strain, and location.

Click New to Create a New Seed Lot.

Select a Seed Lot from the index to visit the Seed Lot's Profile.
