What do you use to light deprive your greenhouse panda film or tarps? Panda film will be about 80 bucks taps will run atleast 100.

Also JW why are you starting flowering so early in the season. For most of us outdoor just started up in april... I guess it depends on your location but dang seems super early to me.

Well very sweet man, Sounds like your going to have a very successfull year! Smart Idea though. I think some time down the future Im going to have to get into a multi summer harvest grow like this!
I have been doing some research and talking with people I know and I am going to go with (2) really large 10mil brown tarps and I am going to have two pieces of rope on each one so they will be very easy to pull end to end then tie down, I was thinking of using panda film but it is not very durable like you said and tears very easy, I think I would be better off to shell out the additional money for actual tarps because I would spend just as much in the long run replacing damaged panda film. so 10 mil brown tarps it is!!!
I have been vegging my plants indoors for almost a month now, and I am starting to flower first week of June, so I can run 60 day light deprivation cycles and have a finished crop august 1st, so when everyone's plants outdoors are just starting to flower I will have P's during the middle of the drought and they will be extremely high quality medical grade greenhouse buds that will be worth top$$$ and in the mean time I will be vegging clones indoors under 1000 watts for the final summer harvest the end of October early November. Also less risk of bugs mold rippers thieves cops etc because plants do not have as long of a life cycle 90 day max verse a whole 6-7 month annual summer crop, I can have perpetual greenhouse year round light deprivation greenhouse with sea of green technique is where the yield and time is maximized to its full potential
Thanks for the help greatly appreciated

it's the future man my cousin, crops out 5 times a year and stays with fresh top shelf meds all year round, he just cuts clones from each cycle and vegs them for two months from the day they are cloned and it's pretty easy, and it's really quality and the yield pooh's on indoor, plus no power bill!!!!! outdoor crops every 60 days count me in and a break from the end of December till march sounds lovely to me!!! I am going to try and crop out august 7th, then 1st week of October and then a final cropout in the middle of December and then take Feb and January off. and I am hoping for 15-20 units a harvest so should be pretty decent season. Hopefully I can make it happen!!!!with a larger greenhouse it would be lovely, I am going to be moving into a 25x40x12 along with maintaining my 16x16x10 in November so I really want to get this dialed in before I take that project on,:smoke:

light deprive? Do you mean light proof??? If i was trying to deprive light, id turn the lights off hehehehehe
but... im not sure about a tent, im using a shed... anywhere light leaked, i sealed shut with Great Stuff, then i coated the entire shed in panda papes. Works like a charm lol

Is the light/sun during the winter months really enough for top shelf smoke? I imagine the low light would be a problem and would lead to loose buds
Looks like i am not the only one thinking about this...i got a 10ply black out sheet from the greenhouse place, its 1/2 white and 1/2 black...my greenhouse is 50' x 30' x 16 '...so i got a 50' x 100 '...I am going to start July 15 to get a Sept 15 harvest...I dont know what time i am going to cover yet? Can you guys tell me what you think? If i cover at 6pm and then take the cover off when it get's dark, i can keep the air flow going at night? But worry about the heat from 6pm to 9pm? Or i can cover at 9pm leave the cover on all night, and take off at 9am, run a small cage fan under the cover to keep air flow, or put in a dehumidafier?..I am worried about air flow when its covered and all sealed up?
