Flower Week Outside Grow


#1

Let’s see if I understand this correctly. Bergman, in his ad for his product, shows images for flower week 5, 6, 7. I live in PacNW right on the Canadian border. It takes all summer for the plant to begin to flower. By flower week 7 it would put harvest in the middle of October. Did I get that right? And, the rains start between early to mid September so moving the plants (in pots) into a greenhouse to avoid mold in mid September would be the right time to do that?

There are a number of growers in the Pacific Northwest that may be able to give you some insight. Also, @Donaldj lives in the arctic or something and might have input haha! @Covertgrower @GreenThunder anyone else you can think of and any thoughts?

If I were in your shoes I would containerize and finish inside under lights with a dehumidifier. Whole crops can be lost to bud rot over night and it’s no joke. @Countryboyjvd1971 lost some plants last year to it. It’s not something you want to fool with.


#3

When did the buds start to rot?


#4

Any time the humidity is up and the buds are getting dense. A greenhouse would be a nightmare without a dehumidifier if it’s already humid out.


#5

Thanks. I’ll start searching for dehumidifiers.


#6

Just found a whole slew of dehumidifiers on Amazon! Cheap!!


#7

Before you buy, wait and see if others have feedback about dehumidifying a greenhouse if that’s your plan. This guy: @Countryboyjvd1971 is the local HVAC guru. I bet he’ll chime in if we ask nicely.

@metronome yes a green house would certainly help. Yes guys it’s “humid” in the green house but it’s also a temperate rainforest, and would likely be facing rot due to the amount of rain.
If you haven’t purchased beans yet, I would recommend and autoflower for the speed of finishing in time.
Also @blackthumbbetty is from these parts.

lol about 500 miles North of border but the timeline sounds about same we used on Vancouver Island


#10

I thought I’d get a grin out of you over that haha!


#11

I can see Vancouver Island from the top of my conning tower. Ha!


#12

What’s better for greenhouse use in October ; heater or dehumidifier?


#16

A heater will also dehumidify.


#17

Avg Min Temp (°F) Oct 42F
Avg Max Temp (°F) Oct 58F

Avg Precip (In.) Oct 4.5"

Given this data would you recommend a dehumidifier or a heater


#18

That’s pretty chilly. I would definitely put a heater in there.

With 4 and a half inches of rain id go with a dehumidifier which by design will also raise temp in the green house since the air that comes off dehumidifier will be warm
A heater will dehumidify but i don’t think it would keep it dry enough for you unless your using a gas fired appliance fyi im a hvac guy by trade :wink:
You actually might need both heat a dehumidifier after taking a second look id have both options ready
What type of heater are you thinking about @metronome

You could ise propane type heaters then you wouldn’t need the dehumidifier
