Flower One Holdings:

US: "Conversion of 400,000 sq ft. greenhouse to cannabis 95% complete"

In May 2018, Flower One Holdings began the conversion of its Nevada greenhouse. Now it provided an update on the process, as the Company continues to execute on its growth strategy in the Nevada cannabis market. "We have made significant operational progress on many fronts", they say proudly "Including the Conversion of 400,000 Square Feet of Greenhouse Cultivation Capacity." 

In May of last year, the Flower One began a 12-month process of converting one of the largest commercial greenhouses in Nevada for large-scale hydroponic cannabis cultivation. According to the company, the conversion is now approximately 95% complete, and is expected to be fully completed on schedule. 

"We have now hit an important milestone as we have initiated the onboarding of plants into its greenhouse.

To date, they have achieved the following cultivation results:

  • Two climate-controlled, spectrum adjustable cutting cells are in full operational mode and have rooted more than 100,000 cannabis cuttings (small plants).
  • In the greenhouse, they has constructed three expansive, multi-density ebb and flood zones, which are now fully populated with plants.
  • The greenhouse has been designed to have eight large "flower" zones. Once fully canopied, the greenhouse is expected to operate on a perpetual cycle of harvesting one zone per week (representing, on average, 10,000 plants per harvest). To date, we are 50% canopied, with four of the eight zones planted, amounting to 200,000 square feet of plants. 

"We anticipate that our inaugural Zone One harvest will commence in June, 2019. Once fully canopied, we should be capable of producing over 140,000 lbs (or 62,500 kg) of dry flower annually, and will house in the eight flower zones over 80,000 plants per crop cycle."

Construction of 55,000 Square Foot Post-Harvest, Extraction and Packaging Facility

Also the construction of the production facility is progressing. "We have now completed the buildout of the initial 15,000 square feet of this facility, including a fully automated wetting line, pruning line and two high-tech cutting cell rooms."

"The exterior construction of the additional 40,000 square foot, two-story structure was completed in March 2019. The Company has now commenced the internal work to support the installation of the post-harvest, extraction and packaging line technology."

"We plan to accelerate operations in the coming months to support the inaugural Zone One harvest our flagship greenhouse cultivation facility," they conclude. 

Transforming 25,000 Square Foot Indoor Cultivation & Production Facility
They add that it continues to maximize the full suite of human talent, resources and assets at its 25,000 square foot indoor cultivation and production facility.  "Our cultivation team has executed on the project of growing and transferring the initial plant material from the our indoor facility to the greenhouse." 

With the completion of the transfer of plant material to the greenhouse, the intended use of the indoor facility will focus on:

  • Testing and trialing new cannabis strains prior to scaling their cultivation at our greenhouse.
  • Preservation and vaulting of our ever-expanding genetic bank, which currently comprises a library of over 100 unique cannabis strains.
  • Craft cultivation of select strains to support our Brand Partners and any strategic, limited run SKUs.
  • Select processing and production of Brand Partner SKUs.
