CAN: A look behind the scenes at the cultivation techniques of a craft cannabis grower

It is cloning season at Lune Rise Farms, a craft cannabis grower in Ontario, Canada. The team has been busy working behind the scenes to prepare all the clones they have planning on planting in the field to soak up the sun. In their recent video, we meet Jason, their farm manager, as he walks us through the cloning and greenhouse set up for this year.

Achieving healthy plants
First of all, Jason explains how Lune Rise Farms keeps the mother plants in the greenhouse healthy and watered, getting them ready for cloning. "We have two 1000 gallon water totes, the water of which goes through a filter and enters the greenhouse, feeding nine drip lines. The original moms are in fabric pots and have 4-5 drip lines per pot, depending on how thirsty they are. All the other pots are 4-5 gallon pots, where we run two drip lines per pot."

The environment inside the greenhouse is monitored with sensors measuring the temperature and humidity at all times. "To supplement the sunshine, we have HPS and CMH lights running from 2:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. This gives us an 18/6 light cycle for our production." They also have dual-layer polyplastic on top of the greenhouse. Max-Fans pump air in between the two layers of plastic, acting as insulation. "This helps us to regulate the temperature better." Moreover, both the mother plants and the plants in the field are grown in living soil. 

Lune Rise Farms generates thousands of cuttings from the mother plants in the greenhouse, which will then be taken into the cloning room. "We are housing about 116 propagation trays here, so we have a lot of plants in a small space. Everything together is what we need to be able to plant six acres. So this is where it all starts for us."
