SPRING IS COMING – TIME TO THINK ABOUT…. light dep.
To depro your greenhouse is quite simple really. To induce flowering, you just need to block out all light for 12 hours, which in most cases, will consist of simply blocking the sun via some sort of heavy tarp or fabric.
We call it a “blackout tarp”, and this is how we make it:
Tools and Materials Needed:
1 roll of greenhouse tape
1 roll of duct tape
1 roll of 10′ x 100′ (black on white visqueen) panda plastic
60 feet of braided nylon rope (.5″)
3 8′ bamboo stakes
24 4″ Spring Clamps
2 ladders (8 ft pref, 6 ft ok)
Step 1 – Prep your material
Cut two 10′ x 20′ pieces and one 4′ x 20′ piece of the panda plastic (black on white visqueen). You are going to assemble these 3 pieces into one large sheet that is 22′ x 20′. Lay out your 10′ pieces parallel to each other, with a 2 foot gap between them. Then lay our 4′ piece centered over the top of this gap, again parallel to but on top of the other two pieces. Then tape the seems all the way down. Flip the entire 22′ x 20′ piece over and tap the remaining seems along their entire length.
Step 2 – Make a stiff edge on one end
Take 3 8′ pieces of bamboo and duct tape them together so they extend to 20′. Try to select thin and evenly tapered pieces of bamboo. On the 22′ end of the plastic, run the bamboo pole along the edge, entered, andthen fold the plastic over the bamboo. Use greenhouse tape or duct tape to fasten the edge, using a few inches of tape every few feet. Then tape the entire seem twice to create a strong hem. Right above the pole, you are going to poke 2 tiny holes, each about 6′ in from the end, so that you can attach ropes later.
Step 3 – Attach ropes
Take 2 30′ pieces of rope and tie them onto the poles using the holes you created in the last step. You now have a large sheet of plastic capable of blocking the entire top, front, and back surface of your greenhouse, which can be easily pulled over the surface of the entire greenhouse, from back to front, using the ropes attached.
Step 4 – Affix your cover to the back of the greenhouse
Take the 22′ side with no pole and attach it to the exterior of the back wall along the top, over lapping the existing back wall by about 18 inches. Using 4 of the 4″ spring clamps attach the cover to the top bar of the back wall of the greenhouse structures, evenly spacing your clamps along the bar. Then use 1 clamp on each side bar to pin down the 18″ of overlap on the sides.
Step 5 – Make the side pieces
Measure the ends of your greenhouse, remembering to add an extra foot to the top and bottom for overlap. You are going to cut two pieces of panda plastic, each 10′ by approx 12′, to cover the ends of your greenhouse. You can cut off the diagonal corners if you want but it is not necessary. After pulling your top cover over, you are going to use 4″ spring clamps to affix the sheets of visqueen to the bars of the greenhouse frame, using approx 10 clamps spaced evenly around the outside.
Step 6 – Cover your greenhouse
Before depro, it is important to remember to have all your oscillating fans on low, your outtake fan turned off, and your dehumidifier(s) on. Then, using your handy ropes, throw them over the top of the green house, and then have a friend help you easily pull your cover over the entire top surface of your greenhouse. Then, as mentioned in the last step, use your remaining spring clamps to affix your end pieces.
Step 7 – Start your flower cycle
12 hours later, remove the end pieces, toss the ropes back over to the other side, and use them to uncover your greenhouse. At this point your flower cycle has begun. For the next 90% of your flowering cycle you are going to cover your greenhouse every night at bedtime (whatever bedtime is, usually before dark) and then uncover it 12 hours later, give or take 30 minutes.

Guerilla in the Midst: “…Once I arrive on my jungle farm, such a glorious sight greets my irie red eyes. The bright sun blazes hot on this garden. The dense bushes are busy crankin’ out huge kolas, and sugarin’ up so sweetly. I am thinkin’ we will get some fine medicine out of this here ganja. My brother the backbone (we’ll call him Big D) is in the garden, already tinkerin’ with the drip system. We greet each other and catch up on news and stories while smokin’ another fatty. Under that brilliant blue sky, I grunt and sweat, plantin’ marigolds, applyin’ top dress, fixin’ the drip, and fillin’ up the water tanks. All the while, I keep an intimate connection with each plant. I notice the color of her leaves. Are they dark green or lime green? Are they curled in, limp, crispy, or spotted? All of these abnormalities could be the result of numerous factors that are detrimental to the optimal health of this herb. I must know if an abnormality is the result of a nutritional deficiency, excessive fertilizing, over watering, dehydration, windburn, bugs, mold, the possibilities are endless. A Growilla warrior can never be too observant and conscious when in his garden.”

Marc Emery, Michelle Rainey, and Greg Williams (the BC3) are Canadian citizens who were heavily involved in anti-prohibition activism in Canada for more than ten years. The United States is attempting to extradite these Canadian cannabis activists to the a country they’ve never been to and stand trial to face up to life in US federal prison. This is an insult to Canadian sovereignty and citizens’ rights. More info at http://cannabisculture.com
