There are different kinds of marijuana greenhouses that you should consider when you get ready to create a cannabis grow room or outdoor marijuana operation. The size of your grow operation will determine the kind of marijuana greenhouses, you get to choose from. Let’s take a look at some of these.

Different Marijuana Greenhouses

The Attached Greenhouse

The attached greenhouse is usually one of the marijuana greenhouses used by many grow operations. The name symbolizes the characteristics of this particular greenhouse. It is attached to a building or a home. This one is cost effective because it receives heat that comes from the building it is attached to.

For that reason, it keeps the marijuana plants warmer and so, you don’t have to take extra steps to create heat from another source. More importantly, the attached greenhouse is smaller than the other traditional marijuana greenhouses.

The Lean to Greenhouse

The lean to greenhouse is ideal for the person that has insufficient space to hold a free standing greenhouse. It is also for the grower that only wants to grow a few marijuana plants. In addition, the cost for materials for the lean to marijuana greenhouses is lower. This is because these marijuana greenhouses already have one wall.

In comparison to the attached greenhouses, one disadvantage of the lean to marijuana greenhouses is the restrictions that exist with the fact that there is only one option where the positioning of the wall is concerned.

The Freestanding Greenhouse

The freestanding marijuana greenhouses (also known as detached cannabis greenhouses) are not hooked up to anything nor is it leaned on an object, wall or building. They stand on their own. They mimic the shape of a house with frames that could be made of either aluminum or wood. Aluminum and wood are particularly chosen to make this type of marijuana greenhouse because the sun doesn’t shine through.

Sunlight and Shade

For that reason, the marijuana plants will be well shaded. If you want even more shade from the sun, make sure that the frames of the marijuana greenhouse are thick, but not too thick. With more shade, there will be less sunlight for your marijuana plants and that is why you cannot make the frames too thick.

One good thing about this type of marijuana greenhouse is that you can move it to any location because there are no restrictions as it relates to hooking it up to a building like you do with the attached marijuana greenhouses. So, if you don’t have your own space to start any marijuana grow operation, you can lease or rent land and put your freestanding greenhouse on it.

The Connected Greenhouse

The connected marijuana greenhouses are multiple attached greenhouses. This works best if you are running large marijuana grow operation in the commercial sense. Even though, the greenhouses are connected, the temperature is controlled in one area and reaches all of the attached greenhouses, allowing for more cost effectiveness.

The Cold Frame

If you are running a small grow operation, then the cold frame would work best for you since it is less expensive and is climate controlled for energy efficiency. You can actually make this yourself using cheap plastic covered with clear, thin plate and thick glass. The sun is what heats up these cold frames so make sure that you are in a hot, sunny location. You could put in a heating system, but it is going to cost more, of course.

When considering the best marijuana greenhouses, think size. The bigger it is, the more expenses, but you can reduce cost by choosing wisely. If you want to know more about marijuana greenhouses, enroll in Cannabis Training University's cannabis certification program today!
