This is my first greenhouse grow so I’m looking for tips. Started outdoors then transferred to greenhouse I built myself. Plants are loving it but I can’t seem to keep temps rite. Other than that what yall think. I’m 48 days in.
Those are looking great. They might be a little close together for when they go to flower. But others than that, they look green @Crikkett01
Welcome to ILGM
Welcome @Crikkett01! Looks like you’re doing great so far. Keep it up! @MattyBear @highcountrygal @mulegal These folks grow outdoors in a greenhouse I believe. They might have some suggestions to help you control your temperature.
Very nice greenhouse, too!
@Crikkett01 Howdy welcome to the best place for learning, sharing and having a lot of fun with the coolest people!
I love your green house! I used mine all winter
I love this little gem! I see you were worried about temp regulation. I never did check the temps, I just made sure I kept the ground moist when I closed it up and it was like a rain forest in there but the girls loved it, I would check and unzip the door to let in fresh air. They grew rapidly in there. I had it for my Winter Grow and when we had freezing (I live in San Diego’s East county) or very cold weather I would check on them and it was toasty warm. Unless you put a fan in there but I think your girls will be happy. It got warm on hot days so I just lifted the door, kept it moist and they did fine. I wouldn’t worry too much unless you can’t check through out the day.
Check out my 2 out door grow journals ‘Come Grow with me by hcg’ and ‘I’m HCG! Come along with me for a summer’s grow’ and then start one for your self so we can see watcha got:)
What yall think about fox farm products
I’ve used Ocean Forest and Happy Frog soils. I’m happier with Happy Frog, not so hot as Ocean Forest, makes it a pretty good “all-around” soil for my setup. Ocean Forest burned my first grow, I used it from start to finish.
@Crikkett01 Between all of us I think we have a majority of the stock holdings! Great stuff! I use ‘Open Sesame’, Beastie Bloomz’ and Cha-Ching. I and others will swear you can see results overnight! I use no other nute’s!
For soil I used black kow manure and swanee river top soil with bone meal and perlite mix myself
Great great job on that green house, HCG and all these great people here at ilgm will head you in the right direction. Welcome my friend. Plants looking green and healthy.
Hi there, a couple of things you could do are ,1. remove the capping on the roof peak, that is where all your hot air and humidity sits. ,2 replace the plastic on the entry door with shadecloth or open weave matting of some sort that will allow passive inflow of cooler outside air. On my greenhouse my roof sheets on one side of the peak sit flush on roof beams while the other side is raised at the peak and extends 12 inches or so over the lower roof. This allows me an air gap about 4 " high that runs the full length of the roof. In the lower half of my entry door panel i have installed a solar driven intake fan that draws cool external air into the greenhouse. This solar fan runs all day and keeps my internal temps just a couple of degrees celsius above ambient termps. and no power required.
@mountainman1 where did you get the fan. I have 4 in there now. I do have an open ridge and air gap all the way around the roof. If you notice I do have vents in the peak. My front does roll up. Fixing to put it on a pulley system so I can adjust to bring in more air flow. It’s been cloudy here so my temps are staying around 78 to 85 degrees. Humidity is around 77 percent. I will put some more pics up later of the inside so you can see. I did some research and that house has about 5 different designs to it lol. Thanks for the help. Just seen last night that I might have a Male so that’s my next problem.
the solar exhaust fan was purchased of the internet here in aus. I will try to find the details for you but i am away for a few days fishing. will let you know as soon as i am back home.
Cool man fish on! Get-r-done!
Your doing fantastic buddy @Crikkett01
Here is an update on my grow@Covertgrower @highcountrygal @TDubWilly @Mrcrabs @elheffe702 @Sasquatch @Sittingbull64 @FloridaSon @blackthumbbetty and anyone else I forgot. There are 7 of these girls.
@Crikkett01 those are preflowers. This means she’s sexually mature and ready to flower. If you were in a tent, you could change the light schedule at any time, if her size was to your liking.
Since you’re in a greenhouse, nature will decide the light schedule.
You forgot to give me some names lol @Covertgrower
@Crikkett01 priorities! Lol I never name plants. White widow 1 white widow 2 (or whatever strain you have) that’s how I I name mine.
I try to keep it scientific, especially for cloning purposes so I know which is a better producer.
