Sync my cultivation from METRC

Updated 3 months ago by NIr Malchy

If you had to work in METRC and made one of the changes below, sync them back to Flourish by clicking the

Sync From METRC button

What Can I sync from METRC?

Click the Sync From METRC button to sync back to Flourish after making the changes below in METRC (Click to know more):

Immature plant Batches

Mature plant batches

Supported growth phase transitions

Non-California:

  • Immature -> Vegetation
  • Immature -> Flowering
  • Vegetation -> Flowering

California:

  • Immature -> Flowering

The Sync from METRC (Reverse Sync) includes all the plants updated within the past 24 hours. The METRC API limits syncing to 24 hours. To ensure Flourish data is up to date, we automatically run the Reverse Sync process every night!
The Reverse Sync does not include Harvest information (Working on it! - see below).

More information

Immature Plant Batches updates

If you had to go to METRC and make the changes below, click the Sync From METRC button to sync them back to Flourish.

Import New Plant Batches

If you create a new immature plant batch in METRC, Flourish imports the batch as a new Clone Group.

Destroy Plantings in a Plant Batch

If you destroy plantings directly in METRC, Flourish will destroy the exact number of plantings in the same plant batch to match the Destroyed Count provided by METRC.

Package Plantings from an Immature Plant Batch

If you package plantings directly in METRC, Flourish will package the exact number of plantings in Flourish to match the Packaged Count provided by METRC. This is done in 2 steps:

  1. Cultivation sync: Click Sync From METRC, and Flourish will decrement the plant count in the immature plant batch.
  2. Package sync: In the Inventory > All Packages screen, click Sync METRC Packages, and Flourish will create the packages in inventory.

Split Batch Plantings

If you split existing plant batches into new immature plant batches directly in METRC:

  1. Flourish will remove the exact number of plantings removed from the source batch(es).
  2. Flourish will import the new batch(es) from METRC, just like any other batch.
There will be no direct link at the planting level from the source and new plant batches in Flourish.
California users: Because METRC does not have a Vegetative growth phase in California, all new Immature plant batches are created in the Cloning phase.
Change of Strains

If you change a Strain of an immature batch in METRC, click the Sync From METRC button to sync the new Strain back to Flourish.

Change of location within the immature phase

If you moved a batch in METRC, click the Sync From METRC button to sync the new update Flourish.

Flourish uses the Synced from METRC groups (see below) to 'catch' and batches you moved in METRC.

Mature Plants updates

If you had to go to METRC and make the changes below, click the Sync From METRC button to sync them back to Flourish.

Destroy Tracked Plants

If you destroy mature plants directly in METRC, click the Sync From METRC button, and Flourish will mark the plants as dead.

Change of Strains

If you change a Strain of mature plants in METRC, click the Sync From METRC button to sync the new Strain back to Flourish.

Change of location within the mature phase

If you moved mature plants in METRC, click the Sync From METRC button to sync the new area back to Flourish.

Flourish uses the Synced from METRC groups (see below) to 'catch' and batches you moved in METRC.

Growth Phase Transitions

  • Flourish will now have the ability to reflect growth phase changes that occurred directly in METRC. We do this using Synced from METRC groups.
  • Synced from METRC groups are basically catch-all containers. If you transition a plant directly in METRC, the reverse sync will assign it to the proper Synced from METRC group by phase and location (Flourish area).
  • You can find the Synced from METRC groups in the sidebar with your other groups, but they are listed under the Synced from METRC heading:

Use the Split Group action to move plants from a Synced from METRC group.
Synced from METRC groups cannot be moved because they are tied directly to their area.

Supported Transitions
  • Non-California:
    • Immature Plant Batch -> Vegetation Phase
    • Immature Plant Batch -> Flowering phase
    • Vegetation Phase -> Flowering Phase
  • California:
    • Immature Plant Batch -> Flowering phase

Example
  • Let's say you have a single immature plant batch, Plant Batch 1, in METRC with 10 clones of strain Blue Dream.
  • You log in to METRC directly and change the growth phase of 5 plants to Vegetation, assigning tags in the process and moving them to METRC Location Greenhouse 1.

When Flourish pulls down these changes, we will:

  1. Decrement the plant count in Plant Batch 1 from 10 to 5.
  2. Create a new Synced from METRC group in growth phase Vegetation/area Greenhouse 1, with 5 plants of Strain Blue Dream.
Implications: When plants are moved into a Synced from METRC group, the original grouping will be lost.

What's next? More enhancements!

We continue to enhance our Cultivation Incremental Reverse Sync from METRC, allowing actions taken outside of Flourish to more easily sync back into Flourish. The following actions are on our roadmap to be released in the coming weeks:

  • Harvesting plants.
  • Intelligent Grouping;
    • Try, as best as we can, to retain Flourish groupings when operating on plants or batches.
