If you aren’t tracking and analyzing your grow, you are at a significant disadvantage.

The brilliant 19th century mathematician Karl Pearson created Pearson’s law, which states:

“When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported back, the rate of improvement accelerates.”

Admittedly, some cannabis cultivators do excel simply by going through each run intuitively, and not tracking data or taking any notes at all. But I would say after working in the grow world for years upon years, just about every super-successful grower that I’ve encountered employs some form of data tracking and analysis, and/or some form of grow journaling.

The human mind was simply not meant to juggle- and then accurately store- all of the historical data from your grow, especially while dealing with all the other stresses that come from living life. When you choose to write down and record a piece of data, not only does it give your grow operation more power, but it also frees up your own “hard drive space.” This results in reduced mental stress, clearer decision making, and a lessened internal workload.

I try to impart this lesson on growers all the time: your habits will determine your cultivation success. If you can get in the habit of things like runoff testing, preventative sprays, and proper ongoing deleafing- you will have a much more successful run than if you didn’t employ these habits. The habit of data tracking and journaling is especially helpful t not only provides you with decision-making tools to help you make the correct choices in your grow, but it also deepens your understanding and relationship with your grow space. This allows you to fully comprehend where your run started, what it’s current state is, and what it’s future trajectory is.

Measuring and tracking your grow will certainly bring Pearson’s law into effect, resulting in improved performance. As far as reporting goes, we would love to see your results!

As a cannabis cultivator, things like data tracking, optimization, and constant self-improvement should be on your mind at all times. Where there isn’t growth, there is atrophy.

It’s important that cultivators don’t get complacent in their grow operations, and remain open to new strategies and ideas that can improve their overall results.

Journaling and data tracking is a great way to get an objective snapshot of your grow, resulting in a powerful road map and decision-making tool.

Best of luck in your operations, remember to journal and track your grows… Be safe, and happy growing!
