I have heard that photo period plants need 18 hours of light per day. I am growing in a greenhouse. I can’t afford high dollar grow lights let alone the astronomical electricity bills that they generate. Will the long days of summer be adequate lighting?
Yes it will they need as much sun light as possible if you grow garden food in your greenhouse it will be fine to grow cannibas too @Budwiser69
LED grow lights have really come a long way, depending on what you need it may not be a huge electrical expense. My light in my 3x3 tent running 18/6 365 days a year only costs around $300 a year. That comes out to about $25 a month for good weed, cheap in my book.
My greenhouse is 10X9X8. I have spent my grow budget. I have a humidifier and fans. I’ll be able to control humidity and temperature in the greenhouse. I’m going to rely on the natural light from the sun. I hear that’s the best. Chas
Cannabis didn’t start growing under LED lights. Your plants will get plenty of light from the sun in a day’s time. In many way growing outdoors is a lot easier than indoor.
It’ll be wonderful, stay vigilant with pests and mold outdoor! Grasshoppers LOVE LOVE LOVE MJ plants, at least in my area. I lost an entire massive outdoor plant to them in 2 days. There was like 50 of those little shits chomping away. I could literally hear them eating it! I decided to let them have at it, I smoked, and observed. I determined they were all super stoned and had munchies so they kept eating, and got stuck in a thc fueled never ending food frenzy. Lol
God I’m funny.
Laughing my A off
True story, honest!
Chocolate covered ants and grasshoppers are a delicacy. Maybe you are on to something.
tasty thc termite treats?
I ate a fried grasshopper once. Not bad all things considered.
Wouldn’t want it for a staple diet.
You build your greenhouse with the clear panels?
You are a very nice guy…cuz I Squished their freekin heads under my finger and thumb. *Caterpillars that is… Your story is funny though…
dont take your thumb off its neck til it stops fighting back
Grasshoppers were abundant here last summer. I got pretty good at knocking them off the plants and then doing a little jig smashing them on the ground. My neighbors would have thought I was insane if they ever looked over the fence!
@Jaysittinback I know huh! I kinda felt like the Charlie Manson of Caterpillars…at least I wasn’t the Jeffrey Dahmer…ewww as much as I hate them I wont eat them…
@JaneQP Thats funny…yet I can relate I don’t have too many Grass Hoppers ( a few) I hear ya on the neighbors thing…Mine must have heard me cussin and “crying”/ranting on the caters eating my babies …just when they were at their peak ( Oct/croptober)… As I look back now I think I was totally insane …aka " Goin Off"… I was totally pissed that all my efforts all season were muddled by the last 10 days or whatever by these lil bastardos…I mean I really have enough for me…but I don’t like giving in to them for all the work I put in… As I look back now I need to chill…I have enough…but still Its a war against the machine and the machine of nature usually wins…But I wont give in…I will still fight… :boom This season I may try a screened in grow outdoors… Hmm we shall see…
I got some mycorrhizal fungi. Should I keep it refrigerated?
