A structure used to help grow cannabis outdoors, a greenhouse protects plants from the elements and helps regulate temperature and humidity. Greenhouses are environmentally friendly because they use natural sunlight and don’t use the heavy amount of resources that indoor growing does.
The benefits of growing weed with a greenhouse
Outdoor marijuana growing is great because it doesn’t use all the resources that indoor growing uses. Greenhouses are cheap and easy to build—check out our article on how to build a greenhouse in your backyard—and can protect your plants from the elements.
Greenhouses allow sunlight in, giving your plants light for photosynthesis and also trapping in heat to help regulate temperature and humidity. Some greenhouses also have translucent covers, which diffuse light.
Because you can control the environment more, greenhouses usually allow you to extend the growing season and grow into colder months in the fall, and even begin growing earlier in the spring.
