7 Tips for Legal Cannabis Greenhouse Growers

If you’re just beginning to grow legal recreational cannabis or medical marijuana, WeatherPort — the premiere manufacturer of tensioned membrane cannabis greenhouses — has a handful of tips* to help you get off to a great start.

We also offer tensioned membrane commercial cannabis greenhouses for experienced commercial growers of all sizes. Before anybody starts growing legal cannabis, it’s important to remember to:

A WeatherPort Heavy Gable Greenhouse provides incredible clear-span interior space for growing legal cannabis.

A WeatherPort Heavy Gable Greenhouse can feature translucent fabric membranes or membranes made using blackout materials.

Study, study, study

Although trial and error is a great way to learn, the best way to grow quality buds is by learning proper techniques. High-grade cannabis production is an expensive process. Wasting quality seeds is a sure way to make it cost even more.

Buy high-quality seeds

No amount of knowledge can turn bad seeds into top-shelf buds. Your yields will be lower, too. Buying from a reputable cannabis seed bank is the best way to ensure that you’ll get proven genetics. Make sure you plant feminized seeds. Avoid using clones because they take longer to bud and can carry diseases and genetic flaws.

A GrowPort Greenhouse can accommodate a wide range of nutritious soils in a sheltered growing environment.

Start with good soil

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

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

WeatherPort designers will work with you to create a spacious greenhouse that can accommodate ventilation and climate-control systems.

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

Your marijuana grow room needs strong airflow and good 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 cramped 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. Our greenhouses can accommodate lighting systems and are suitable for hydroponics, aquaponics, aeroponics, organic and other popular growing methods.

Grow Tent for commercial marijuana

WeatherPort Grow Tents accommodate for various sizes in commercial marijuana growing.
