7 Tips to Improve Legal Cannabis Greenhouse Growing

Are you a new grower just beginning a legal recreational cannabis or medical marijuana journey?

WeatherPort — the premiere manufacturer of tensioned membrane cannabis greenhouses — has a handful of tips* to help you get off to a great start.

In addition, we also offer tensioned membrane commercial cannabis greenhouses for experienced commercial growers of all sizes. Before you start growing legal cannabis, it’s important to remember these helpful tips.

Study, Study, Study

Trial and error is a great way to learn. However, the best way to grow quality buds is by learning proper techniques before getting started. High-grade cannabis production can be a costly process. Consequently, wasting quality seeds is a sure way to make it cost even more.

Buy High-Quality Seeds

First, no amount of knowledge can turn bad seeds into top-shelf buds. Your yields will be lower, too.

  1. Buy from a reputable cannabis seed bank is the best way to ensure that you’ll get proven genetics.
  2. Make sure you plant feminized seeds.
  3. Avoid using clones because they take longer to bud and can carry diseases and genetic flaws.

Start with Good Soil

Second, nutrient-rich soil is a key to growing high-grade legal marijuana. It also cuts down on expenses because you won’t need boosters or fertilizers, which can lead to root burn. You should always check the pH levels of your water and soil, too.

Monitor and Adjust Humidity

Third, each stage of marijuana production requires different levels of humidity. Getting it wrong will ruin your crop. Too much humidity causes mold. Too little humidity dries out buds. Not knowing when to keep things incredibly arid won’t force your plants to protect themselves by increasing resin production, leading to lower THC levels.

Maintain Correct Growing Room Temperatures

As with humidity, different stages of development require different temperatures. Maintaining proper temperatures inside your cannabis greenhouse is one aspect of having ideal air conditions.

Create Airflow and Ventilation

Alternatively, our marijuana grow room needs strong airflow and proper ventilation to maximize cannabis yields. Smaller cannabis greenhouse kits can use oscillating fans while large marijuana greenhouses need commercial-grade equipment.

Make Sure to Have Enough Space

Ventilation, humidity control, lighting and temperature control are less effective in tight spaces. It’s better to err on the side of more space than less. WeatherPort Cannabis Greenhouses come in sizes up ranging from 8’ to 150’ wide and any length.

No matter the size of your growing operation or your experience as a legal cannabis grower, a commercial cannabis greenhouse from WeatherPort offers translucent or blackout fabrics, ventilation systems, climate-control systems, personnel and equipment doors, open-span support systems and more. Uniquely, our greenhouses can accommodate lighting systems and are suitable for hydroponics, aquaponics, aeroponics, organic and other popular growing methods.
