Leaching can also be used for plants that have been over fed to remove excess nutrients and salts to revitalise plants.

Light rails can be mounted on ceilings or suspended in grow rooms to hang lights. Moving lights slowly, backwards and forwards across plants they allow less lighting to be used and also lights can be positioned closer to plant canopy as it is not stationary and producing a hot spot on plants.
