HID vs LED Grow Lights
What light spectrum should I target for each growth stage?
Plants can differentiate light based on its electromagnetic wavelengths. Light that is not visible to humans, like ultraviolet (UV), is visible to plants. This ability also lets plants sense the time of day because the wavelengths of light, which correspond to colours, change from sunrise to sunset. Plants can also sense brightness and intensity of light, light exposure length, and even location of light sources. While plants lack a nervous system to translate light into pictures like humans, they are very much able to "see" in a way that is as complex as human sight.
We work with you to determine the best lighting options for both your facility and each stage of growth. You will want the most energy-efficient and cost-effective option, balanced with producing the best product.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who can benefit from Seed for Success cannabis consulting?
Seed for Success helps new and emerging LP-applicants craft and execute a competitive cultivation strategy. The cannabis market is saturating quickly; to achieve long-term success, producers must take a business-first approach. Shlomo understands this first-hand, having spent years growing low-margin crops like poinsettias at commercial scale. Later in his career he applied these same principles as Head Grower for cannabis juggernauts, Tilray and MedReleaf.
By leveraging Shlomo’s best practices and decades of experience, Seed for Success will help you design and implement a commercially viable cultivation facility.
What is the GrowerIQ platform?
GrowerIQ brings together systems, data, and insights to help you grow.
Typically, LPs use 4 primary systems: seed-to-sale tracking, ERP/analytics, environmental monitoring, and facility control. Most LPs procure these 4 systems separately, resulting in limited connectivity and a negative user experience.
GrowerIQ combines these 4 disparate systems into a unified, turn-key software platform for facility management. We work closely with your team to ensure that all equipment procured is compatible with the system infrastructure, allowing us to achieve a high level of automation and performance.
Is using the GrowerIQ platform required?
As cultivation consultants, our passion and focus is to help your team define a cultivation strategy that meets your business goals. Using the GrowerIQ platform is not required, although it’s highly recommended! We’ve jam-packed our system full of Master Grower insights, intuitive processes, and machine learning analytics to help you not only execute, but continuously improve your cultivation strategy.
How will Seed for Success help my application process with Health Canada?
GrowerIQ will provide you with SOP templates (PRO, QAS) that have been approved by Health Canada in successful applications. Your QA team is responsible for customizing the templates to your unique facility. Further, in addition to the SOPs, GrowerIQ will provide you with a 50+ page technology compliance guide to submit to Health Canada. This guide includes a line-by-line description of the GrowerIQ platform’s compliance with B-C45, Part 11, with corresponding screenshots and examples.
What if I need help customizing SOPs, or preparing my final application?
The strength of the Seed for Success program is the team behind it. Through our extensive network of industry partners and consultants, we can assist you in procuring additional Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) SOPs, customization services, and 3rd party consulting, as needed.
I have a large project that requires deeper collaboration, can I consult with Shlomo exclusively?
Shlomo is among the industry’s top cultivation consultants. With ongoing cannabis projects around the world, exclusive consulting arrangements are not possible. That said, those who know Shlomo will know how personally he takes his work. Shlomo is directly involved in all strategy and cultivation decisions, ensuring your project is given a personal touch. Additionally, you will be assigned a dedicated GrowerIQ project manager, who will provide unlimited project consulting, and will act as the direct link between Shlomo and your team.
