There are two main approaches to grow room layout for indoor gardening - Sea of Green (SOG) and Aisles. Sea of Green growing involves pushing all the plants together into one large plant canopy, removing all the space between them. Whereas, aisle growing involves creating rows of plants with spaces, or aisles, between them, allowing workers to walk between the rows of plants.
