Inside a Marijuana Grow House in the San Fernando Valley
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 13th 2012 by THCFinder
There is a warehouse in the San Fernando Valley that looks like any other, but inside there are rows of plants under intense lighting, fans, classical music and an unmistakable smell.
Video will be posted when available.
On the condition of anonymity, a marijuana grower agreed to share what happens in the warehouse under federal authorities’ noses.
Editor's Note: The grower will be referred to in this article as Mike to maintain anonymity.
"I would say the majority of people involved in it are paranoid, and they should be," Mike said. "In the beginning, I got into it for the money."
About how 10 years ago, a friend helped him establish his first cannabis grow house. Since then, Mike claims to have seven or eight working grow houses around the Southland.
"All over LA County, San Bernardino, Orange County," he said.
In the warehouse garage, there is no marijuana odor. But go beyond two separate doors, and the smell is present. Mike has 96 plants, all growing to a classical music soundtrack.
"They grow better with classical music," he said.
Everything is monitored in the room where lights mimic sunlight -- 12 hours on, 12 hours off.
"We control pretty much every aspect of the plant from the environment to the temperature to the humidity to the nutrients in the water," Mike said.
It is a sophisticated system of pipes and tubes, tubs, fans, plugs and buds. When NBC4 visited the so-called pot farm, plants in the first room still had eight weeks until harvest time. An adjacent makeshift room houses plants even less mature.
