Greenhouse Grower Certification
Become a certified greenhouse grower and start your journey as a master grower today. Planning a greenhouse is not the easiest task. There are many intertwined components and several sizes available. This certification introduces you to small-scale commercial greenhouse production and helps you develop the skills needed to design, supervise, and grow cannabis successfully in a greenhouse operation.
Whether you are a novice greenhouse grower or have been at it a while, our greenhouse grower training will give you the knowledge you need to achieve your greenhouse dreams. Our certification will provide you with comprehensive training to operate greenhouses and outdoor frames, so you can successfully cultivate cannabis using the power of sunlight (without expensive electricity).
Learn the design and use of enclosed structures to manipulate controlled environments, effects on growth as applied to cannabis, and the seasonal process of cultivating outdoors. Growers who utilize greenhouses often achieve unbelievable quality with their plants, because it is difficult to match the optimal energy of the sun indoors. With our greenhouse Grower training, you will learn the skills you need to harness that power and grow a thriving cannabis garden.
With the high cost of electricity to cultivate commercial gardens indoors, greenhouses provide the ability for higher production yields and the ability to lower costs using natural sunlight. This certification is intended for those going into or already working in the cannabis industry. Much of the time requires the study of greenhouse structures, nutrition, soil formulation, and pest management.

Cannabis plants go through a series of stages as they grow and mature, and those different stages call for different amounts of light, nutrients, and water. It’s important to know these stages and how long each lasts to know what the plant needs and when. Knowing where your plants are in their life cycle will dictate when to prune, train, and trellis your plants, and when to harvest. It’ll be quicker if you start with a clone or an auto-flower seed, but the biggest variability in how long a cannabis plant takes to grow will happen during the vegetative stage.
- Calendar and Checklist
- Cannabis Horticulture
Cannabis seeds can be acquired from an array of sources and can vary in quality, but require three things to germinate: water, heat, and air. Germination is the process in which a new cannabis plant begins to grow from seed. Also referred to as “popping,” germination is the very first step in starting your cannabis garden. Cannabis seeds can be acquired from an array of sources and can vary in quality yet the seedling stage can be a looming challenge for novice growers, we will cover the simple steps so you can easily manage cannabis seedlings.
- Cannabis Seeds
- Cannabis Strains
- Germination and Seedlings
Learn how cannabis plants come from one of two sources: a seed or a clone. Mother plants are needed in the cloning process – they are highly valued plants that growers take cuttings off of to create clones. The clones are genetically identical cuttings that can then be planted to grow into a new plant. Other methods you’ll discover is how to take cuttings off a set of mother plants then start flowering the mothers. The next generation of clones is grown, and when they get big enough, cuttings will be taken before getting flipped to start flowering.

- Getting Ready to Clone
- Step-by-Step Cloning
The vegetative growth phase is a period of the growing cycle that takes place after seedlings are rooted and before flowering the plants. Learn how during vegetative growth cannabis plants go through a series of stages as they grow and mature. Each of those different stages the plants go through calls for different amounts of light, nutrients, and water, but it’s important to know these stages. Knowing exactly where your plants are in their life cycle will dictate what to do during the vegetative growth stage until you’re ready to start flowering.
- Transplanting Cannabis
- Pruning and Bending
Harvesting is usually the most exciting time when it comes to growing cannabis plants since all your efforts culminate at the moment when you cut down your crop. After months of waiting and working hard to carefully tending your cannabis plants, you’re finally ready to harvest a bountiful yield of frosty, fragrant cannabis buds. While you may be tempted to dry as quickly as possible, yet you’ll need to cure through a prolonged process of removing moisture from the flowers under controlled conditions which provide a much better product.

- Manicuring, Drying, Curing and Storing
Cannabis plants are sensitive to water and nutrients, and there’s a fine line between properly feeding your plants and burning them with chemicals. Find out everything you need to know about properly feeding cannabis plants and learn about the absorption of nutrition, and the included dissolved nutrient salts occurs via the roots of the plant. Learn how this process is done through osmosis which is a physical process in which substances move from one fluid and are separated by a semi-permeable wall (the plant cell) to another fluid within the plant.
- Water and Irrigation
- Nutrients and Deficiencies
- Fertilizers and Additives
Growing cannabis in an indoor environment gives the grower much greater control over the vast number of variables that can affect a plant’s health. The movement of air through an indoor grow space is imperative to maintaining a healthy garden, and without proper ventilation, a grow space can face a number of problems, like carbon dioxide depletion and proliferation of mold and pests. Proper ventilation is a key aspect of running an efficient and clean grow room. In fact, most cannabis pests and plagues are caused by ventilation issues.

- CO2 Enrichment
Unfortunately, bugs, fungi, and other garden pests can totally mess up your cannabis harvest! Just like any other crop cultivated, cannabis is subject to a wide range of pests and diseases that can distress your plants, even kill them if left untreated. Before you can make an informed decision about how best to solve a problem, it is necessary to be able to identify the cause of the plant stress or its symptoms. You will learn different types of bugs, pests, and mold that can affect your plants, along with tips for preventing and solving each problem.

Learn the beauty of using a greenhouse to grow your cannabis plants includes the removal of the tricky complexities of an indoor grow room setup. It is also considered by many to be superior to growing outdoors, as it is more secure yet also more consistent and predictable than growing cannabis plants outdoors. Find how takes the best parts of the natural elements and combines it with protection against the worst parts of the elements, making it the perfect situation especially when growing cannabis when you’re located in colder climates.
- Greenhouses and Outdoor Frames
You will discover that one of the most costly problems when growing cannabis plants you can mention is the high electric bill. Luckily, for most greenhouse operations, the electric bill is about 5 – 10% of the total energy cost and covers such items as the power to run motors, lights, heating elements, and controls when growing indoors. Yet, you will learn that you will still need electricity to run your exhaust fans, light deprivation systems, water irrigation, and other tools you’ll use to grow cannabis plants within your greenhouse growing operation.
- Electricity, Power Sources and Timers
Selecting the optimal growing containers isn’t always easy and not all growing containers are equal since some types of containers are better suited for some purposes than others. When it comes to containers, your plants want one thing only: a safe, healthy place for root development. Without healthy roots, your cannabis will never thrive. Roots are in charge of water retention, nutrient absorption, anchoring the plant, and facilitate vegetative growth. All of these functions must be considered when choosing a container to grow cannabis.
