acmpr winter greenhouse grow

Hi, Ive been lurking for a while now and thought I would post a bit of porn.

This is a glass greenhouse and I will be running 191 purple kush plants in 25 gal pots under 104 1000w hps lamps.

I am using plant prod water soluble fertilizer...

So nothing special really first time in green house and will hope for the best....

Any advice will be Appreciated

Watch for cold drafts, this will contribute to mildew, the next will also be avoiding dewpoint, fairly simple to do if you have a good climate computer and are walking the crop during the day.

Couple more things I am noticing, no sticky cards? I would get those up, unless using colemani or orius yellow does work the best blue does not catch more thrips, some at pot level and some above the crop, catch fungus gnats , whitefly and thrips. I would get sachets for thrips, cucumeris should be good this time of year and much cheaper than swirskii, would put 1 per pot every 4 weeks unless you are seeing pressure or know there has been a thrips issue in that house before, then go every 2 weeks to build up a huge population before flowering, or you can go nutso on the loose application, 50-100 per m2 for at least 4 weeks. Californicus as well until flowering them bank on persimilis for spidermites and don't be shy with them, they are expensive but work better on cannabis for cleaning up spidermites, they still get stuck on the flowers but have longer legs than californicus which only is really preventative.

Since you're right on the ground, have you thought of raising up your pots on styrafoam or troughs etc? You will have cool soil temperature going to your pots especially with no heat between rows, not to mention even with ground cover you will have roots eventually grow into the ground cover. I also suggest getting hypoaspis and atheta going in there for gnats and thrips (if populations are low) 2-5/m2 one time application is usually good if done at planting time.

If you need to stake and you have crop wire in there, either pre wound hooks or jute twine can be put on it and just clip the branches to the string rather than bamboo, mites love to get into bamboo stakes (the larger ones) in the holes.

I might suggest also drip line for irrigation rather than by hand, especially if you have a controller for irrigation (climate computer) or you can just easily flip on a dosatron doser to the water line and let it drip in for you rather than having to water by hand, saves time and more time for you to inspect your crop.

Thank you for all that information.

Right know I rely on pesticide to get rid of the bugs I will definitely switch to beneficial bugs when I start flowering them.

As for the pots sitting on the ground, i totally forgot, my previous plan was to have them sit on pallet and build a wood frame on the pallet and have nets horizontally at every 2 feet. Still not sure but I definitely have to raise them

The bambo sticks you see are temporary. I am still debating whether to use 8 ft bambo sticks combined with nets OR metal cages.

I am planning to install drippers when they start drinking more not to mention that the plan I forgot to mention this greenhouse was neglected in the past so there’s lot of things that need to be replaced like the injector, environment control..

gotnoname, Your grow brings a lot to the old saying. Go big or go home.
I certainly wish you well in this endeavor. Now isn't the time to be going over the list of things you forgot or need to fix, change or remodel. Secondly, when growing cannabis for medical or recreational use. If beneficial bugs work during flowering.(they do) Why the hell wouldn't you use them in vegetative growth? You can use dramatically fewer beneficial bugs when used early as a preventive measure. Rather than waiting until you need them. If the wrong pesticide is used and trace amounts of banned substances are found. You have lost your bug free crop and great electrical expenditures. That is a mighty high price to pay for a few bugs now. Anyway I wish you the best with your grow. Peace

Are you running these for the full 12, or supplementing earlier and later in the day?


Limeygreen is right by the way. A preventative release of beneficials will significantly reduce or eliminate your need to expose yourself and your crop to noxious, systemic pesticides. I have guys coming into our shop all the time who use Avid, azamax, pyrethrins and whatever else they can get their hands on illegally and it does nothing. They are always coming in for beneficials because the sprays do not work.

Not to mention, pesticides are a reactionary and curative solution. Preventative releases are what every sensible LP/ACMPR grower is doing right now.
