How To Grow Strains In A Greenhouse
If you live in a hot dry climate, or a cold climate such as the growing in New England, then using a greenhouse can be a vital piece of equipment. Many climates only allow the proper weather for growing cannabis for a few weeks a year. This short growing period can make it difficult or even impossible to grow weed. But by using a greenhouse, you can have the opportunity to grow marijuana year round, and produce more yield compared to growing outdoors.
If you are looking to grow in a greenhouse then we recommend purchasing a high quality greenhouse. There are many greenhouses on the market, and even some that are tailored specifically for growing marijuana. We highly recommend looking at customer reviews in order to find the best greenhouse for your needs.
Greenhouse Containers or Growing In The Ground
When you have a greenhouse, you must decide if you want to grow your cannabis seeds directly into the soil within the greenhouse, or if you want to put the seeds into individual containers or pots. Typically, we recommend utilizing individual pots or containers as this allows for more optimization to the soil that the seeds are planted in and it also allows you to move the plants if needed.
Find Strains To Grow In A Greenhouse
When you are growing strains in a greenhouse it is important to only use strains that are genetically accustomed to being grown indoors. There are some cannabis seeds that don’t have a high success rate when grow indoors because their genetic makeup doesn’t operate well with greenhouse growing. We also recommend only using seeds from high quality seed banks such as ILGM.
Automate Your Greenhouse Setup
One of the best parts about a greenhouse is the opportunity to automate much of the process. It is possible to automate how much sunlight, water, and nutrients that your plants receive. Instead of having to manually alter how much sunlight or water your plants receive, you can use timers to automate how much water and sunlight they receive. A watering system or light automation system is much more difficult or impossible to do for growing strains outdoor.
Greenhouses Provide Security For Your Strains
One of the main benefits that a greenhouse provides is security for your strains. If you are growing cannabis outdoors then it is possible that humans or animals can find your plants and destroy all of your hard work. In many locations, rodents such as mice can chew through your growing plants before they are able to fully germinate and produce buds. Growing strains in a greenhouse will provide security from humans as well as pests.
Growing In A Greenhouse or Outdoors?
Now that you know more about how to grow seeds in a greenhouse as well as the best strains to grow in a greenhouse, it is important to understand that growing outdoors is also an option for many individuals. Depending on your climate, it may be possible to grow marijuana outdoors without much work because the climate provides the required sunlight, water, and nutrients needed. But for many people, their climate doesn’t offer them this type of experience. This will require many individuals to using a greenhouse or indoor growing setup in order to have a successful growing season.
