Firstly, it’s important to note that there are two types of Rooms in GrowFlow:

Plant Rooms are Rooms associated with the growing process, whereas Inventory Rooms hold all of your post-harvest and/or packaged inventory. GrowFlow helps you manage all of your room types effectively, however, in this article, we’ll be focusing on Plant Rooms exclusively.
Now let’s take a closer look at the “Plants” tab via Admin > Rooms.
1. Locating your Plant rooms
To locate your Plant Rooms, head to your Admin > Rooms and click on the "Plants" tab.
2. Adding a new Plant room.
To add a new plant room, simply navigate to the upper-right section of your Plants tab, and click the “+New Plant Room” button.
A new line will appear on the table list, along with blank fields that need to be filled out as the Room's details.
Room Name: Name the room consistent with the room or area in your facility
Room Purpose: Designate the room for clones, vegging, flowering, or drying plants, or leave it as "unknown"
Assigning a Room Purpose allows the specific Rooms to populate and default when progressing your Plants through the growth stages. Note that if you are simply moving Plants from room to room, this may also move their growth stage if the assigned Room Purpose differs from the Plant's current stage.
Notes: Optionally make note of anything mentionable about the room
Don't forget to click "Save"!
3. Add Tables to a Plant Room
GrowFlow also helps you create tables within rooms for better inventory management during the growing process. These tables can represent actual physical tables your plants are being stored on or even just represent a designated area or shelf in your plant room for organizational purposes.
Simply click the blue "+" icon to add a table(s).
This will expand an area below the room, where you will click "Add Table to Room".
Now, just fill out the fields for the Table Name, and optionally any helpful notes about the table, then click “Save”!
Please note that you can also access your tables from the Grow > Plants page as well by using the Table filter:
What do these other columns on the Rooms page do?
Toggle Room Type: This button/column allows the user to change the room type from being designated as an Inventory room to a Plant room or vice versa. For example, when setting up your rooms, if you make a mistake on the room type, this lets you correct it quickly without having to delete it and then recreate it as the other type. To do this, just click the “Set” button located next to that specific room.
Default star: The “Default” star-shaped button sets a default room that GrowFlow will use when you are creating or promoting in the Grow screens. Please note that you can only set one default room per room purpose type.
Room IDs: These room IDs are simply the last characters (after the period) in Leaf Data’s code that identifies that room in the Leaf Data system.
4. How to delete a Plant room
If you need to delete a plant for whatever reason, you can do so on the Rooms page as well. Simply click the orange “Del” button in the far right-hand column, for the room you wish to delete. A dialogue will appear asking you to confirm this action.
Please note that you cannot delete a room if there is something in that room! See Move Plants to learn how to move the plants to a new room.
