Step 1 – Remove the circular chads on each side of the Plant Tag
Step 2 – Place the strap through the hole on one side
Step 3 – Place the strap through the hole on the other side
Step 4 – Move the tag up until the notch at the top of the strap catches the label. This will ensure the label does not slide down.
Step 5 – When hanging the tag from a plant, remove the strap from the hole on one end of the tag so that the tag is hanging. Then securely fasten the point of the strap through the lock.
Attaching a Tag to a Plant
When a plant is not large enough to carry a strap and tag, the tag can be vertically displayed by placing the pointy end of the strap into the growth medium after completing Steps 1-4 on the previous page.
When the plant is large enough to carry the strap and tag, complete Step 5 on the previous page, displaying the tag as shown below:
Plant Tag Strap Instructions
Figure 1 Figure 2 Figure 3
Figure 1 - Push the tail end of the strap through the lock until you hear a click and the plastic knot passes through the lock, securing the strap for first use.
Figure 2 – If you need to reposition the strap and tag, push the strap through the lock until there is enough space to clip beneath the first knot. Avoid pressing the second knot through the lock.
Figure 3 - Cut the strap as shown in the picture, releasing the strap.
Figure 4 Figure 5
Figure 4 - When you are ready to secure the strap again, as with the first usage, push the tail-end through the lock until you hear a click and see the knot on the other side of the lock.
You can repeat steps 2-4 to reuse the strap twice more, for a total of four strap placements.
Plants - Keep in Mind
- A plant can be destroyed anytime throughout the growth process.
- Plants must be tagged once they reach a height of eight (8) inches.
- In Metrc, anytime you trim something off a flowering plant during growing with the intent to sell it or process it or perform a partial harvest, you must create a Manicure batch.
- When moving plants from one phase to another, clicking the Change Growth Phase button must be used.
- Harvest Steps:
a. Must Harvest Strain specifically
b. Weigh each plant individually in its entirety after cutting it from root ball (weight should include stem, stalk, bud/flower, fan leaves, trim leaves, etc.)
c. Waste can be collected and entered once, or multiple times based on your operating procedures, but must be reported in the system the day it is collected and assigned to the specific Harvest from which it came
d. Create Test Samples from the strain specific packages
e. Package product strain-specifically from the harvest batch (item-specific packages)
f. Create a Transfer Manifest to move product to a Processor
g. Finish the Harvest batch when it is completely gone, regardless of the remaining weight in the system. When there is no more physical product left on site, the remaining weight in the weigh column is moisture loss.
- Plant tags are one-time use ONLY. Once a plant is destroyed or harvested the associated tag should be destroyed or kept separate for your records.
Below is a diagram detailing the cultivation steps.
This required functionality allows you to record and track the application of Additives by Immature batch, individual plant, groups of two or more plants, or Room.
Recording Additives Information
The screen capture shown above shows the recording of additives for a Plant in the Vegetative stage.

Like Additives discussed above, waste can be reported by Immature batch, individual plant, groups of plants, or Room. The Waste option is to the right of the Additives option in each scenario.
Reporting Waste Information
The screen capture shown above shows the recording of waste by Room. The information you will input is the same whether you record waste by Immature Batch, individual plant, or groups of two or more plants, except for Item 7, which would be Batch information, and Plant(s) information respectively.
Item 1: Waste Method
Select the waste method from the dropdown menu.
Item 2: Material Mixed
Identify the material with which the waste was mixed to dispose of the product in accordance with regulations.
