All grow spaces have unique properties which makes operating them a challenge. To protect your crop, begin a new grow with the Pathogen Death Wand at a height greater than 21 inches and no higher than 24 inches above the seedlings. For best results, we recommend hanging the Wand 22 inches above the seedlings. A single Wand will cover an area that is approximately 4 ft. x 4 ft. Install as many Wands as are needed to provide coverage across your entire grow room. If you need to increase the intensity of the light, lower the Wand closer to the plants. At 14 inches the intensity will be approximately doubled, and the coverage will be 4 ft. x 2 ft. It is safe to go as close as 12 inches from the crop with no plant damage. In the cure room, keep the height within 12 to 18 inches above.
From the outset and for each growing stage, the Wand should be left on for the same duration as your existing grow lights. With our field tests, 12 hours on and 12 hours off proved successful. In the cure room, leave the Wands on 24/7. No visible spectrum is employed in the darkened cure room. The Wand can operate 24 hours per day for extended periods if you are faced with a very serious pathogen problem, or say 18 hours on, 6 hours off for a lesser problem. It should not be necessary to leave the Wand on 24/7 for prevention and the long-term effect on a crop with 24/7 stimulation is not known.
Based on growing conditions and your choice of grow light as well as overall plant health and density of the canopy, two Wands may be needed to protect a 4 ft. x 4 ft. section. Hang the Wands a foot apart. Our support team will help you evaluate the situation and address your individual needs but in general adhere to the same height and on/off times described above.
Once your desired height is determined, space your Wand(s) appropriately for good coverage and program your timers. The Wand will do the rest of the work. As the plants grow, the lights will need to be raised to maintain the appropriate distance. Wipe the lens of the Wand with a clean cloth as needed.
If any bacteria, mold or mildew emerges (as outbreaks can occur) contact our support team and be ready to place a second or third Wand above each 4 ft. x 4 ft. section affected by plant disease. We may recommend that you lengthen the exposure time to maintain maximum control of these pathogens and/or reduce the height of the Wands above your plants (9-12 inches, for example) until the outbreak is clearly destroyed. At that point, wipe the dead powdery mildew residue off with a damp cloth. Once you have things in check, you can resume normal operating use.
Thank you for having the confidence to invest in our device and cutting-edge technology. The Pathogen Death Wand has been developed very recently because of extensive research and development in various areas of plant biology, biophysics, microbiology and optoelectronics. The Pathogen Death Wand Company and its distributors are happy to stand by your investment in our equipment. We are entirely open for cooperation with you, helping to solve your problem. Please contact our consumer relations department and be sure to read our blog for additional information about the Wand.
Special Note: Some species of pathogens (wild yeasts and molds) will require more power to be destroyed. Based on the specific conditions of growing facilities and plant’s health problem (for example, if the plants are very weak and/or were seriously contaminated with pathogens), it may be necessary to double the number of units and/or move them up and down.
Installing the Pathogen Death Wand with PDe³ in the Mother Room will enhance and protect both the Seedling Operations and the Cutting (Cloning) Operations.
To achieve better rooting, know that our PDe³ energy reaches the mitochondria of the plant cell. This energy stimulates added production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), which is a building block of plant life. The added ATP production allows the plant to absorb more water and nutrients making it healthier. Our PDe³ energy positively effects the respiration activity within your plants. The light energy completes your plant’s energy intake requirements.
PDe³ is an organic control mechanism against infestations like Powdery Mildew, Botrytis and bacteria. The pure energy emitted by the Pathogen Death Wand promotes healthy growth in the plants by regulating naturally occurring processes in them. PDe³ does not cause molecular ionization (the breaking apart of cellular molecules into ions) and does not produce free radicals due to low energy of photons.
PDe³ is fully compatible with the growing of organic cannabis.
Grow the Healthiest and Strongest Cannabis with PDe³.
PDe³ can support healthier and stronger plant life cycles by promoting nature’s own “organic life processes” (growing without chemicals), and rapidly destroys or continually eliminates many species of fungi and most bacteria affecting plants.

The PDWand decreases or eliminates the use of artificial and synthetic chemicals from Seed To Sale.
PDe³ is an organic control mechanism against infestations like Powdery Mildew, Botrytis and most bacteria. The pure energy that emits from the Pathogen Death Wand is safe light that destroys pathogens and promotes healthy growth in the plants by regulating naturally occurring processes in them.

An application of PDe³ is fully compatible with the growing of organic or natural cannabis.
The PDWand is designed and engineered to be a powerful pathogen destruction device that should continually operate in post-harvest cure rooms 24/7. The Wand provides only invisible wavelengths of light, so no visible spectrum is employed in the darkened cure room.
The Cure Room device destroys Botrytis and Powdery Mildew and other fungi and bacteria on harvested crops because PDe³ attacks the surface of the crop and penetrates deep into the crop to achieve these results.
The solution to overcome this spatial limitation and control capital costs is engineering. Knowing that the Wand generally requires only 12 hours daily over your plants to be effective and can be kept on 24 hours without harming your plants, a grower can optimize the effectiveness and reduce the cost of using the Wand by developing a mechanical system where the Wand can be moved to a new coverage or non-covered area every 12 hours. The movement of the Wands in this manner would double the effective killing space while reducing capital costs by 50%. With today’s large growing areas designed to house very large plants, this solution becomes very beneficial.
For example, both horizontally and vertically, moving the Wand and its beneficial light spectrum laterally onto a different 4-foot section every 12 hour would double the square foot coverage. For extra tall plants, moving the light vertically 3 feet up or down would completely cover a 6-foot plant and best assure that our science is able to attack and protect your plants.
Engineering this repositioning of the Wand solution may need to be customized from grow to grow but should be well worth the effort and one-time expense. This creative approach would save huge capital dollars for any large cultivator.
