Growing in a greenhouse, some specific advice needed


Please advise this fellow grower:

I have a small greenhouse attached to the back of my garage. My house is
in the middle of my 5 acre lot and unseen by neighbors. The greenhouse
faces s/sw, but has enough deciduous trees nearby to cast broken shade
for much of the hottest portion of the day. I built it to provide
winter shelter for my most fragile species of bonsai, and so it is
fairly empty during the spring, summer and early fall. I will only be

information contained in your fantastic PDF downloads. They are a

First of all, thanks for your service! I’ve been using this site for a while and you can really pick up good info. This is only my second grow and I remember starting out and have seen a lot of these questions a lot. Strain is largely personal choice of what works better for you. Robert has a nice assortment of Medical Marijuana. His genetics are good.
What ever size container you choose, drainage is essential ! !
His Free Books are great for starting out ! A lot of information in those books that will walk you through your grow0.

Good Luck and Good Buds
