Growing safely at home

  • Make sure all lights and other equipment are installed by a licensed electrician to prevent fire hazards. 
  • To prevent mold growth, make sure the walls of your grow area don’t easily absorb water (painted concrete or plastic are best). 
  • Make sure the growing space has plenty of ventilation to get rid of excess heat and moisture.
  • Avoid the use of pesticides or fertilizers if possible. Learn more about state rules on pesticide use for commercial products.
  • If pesticides or fertilizers are used, make sure they’re stored in locked cabinets, out of the reach of children. Also, wear personal protective equipment when using pesticides.
  • Only use carbon dioxide generators that are safe for indoor use.
  • Change clothes and shoes when leaving your indoor grow area to prevent tracking of chemicals to other areas of your home.
