Fall Climate Guide

Lettuce Grow | SEPTEMBER 27, 2022

Cue the leaves, Fall is officially here and we couldn't be more excited!

⁠ No matter how much the weather changes where you grow, we're here to help you keep going with these go-to seasonal tips:⁠

⁠ 🌱 Shorter days = slower growth which means less water and fewer nutrients. Check the graphics below for more information on how to adjust your nutrient dosages and watering cycles.⁠



⁠ 💡 Glow Rings® are a great way to light up your Farmstand indoors when there's less light this time of year.

We also suggest a water heater when nighttime temps drop below 45°F.⁠ Learn more about installing and using water heaters here.

⁠ 🔌 Make sure all your outdoor electrical connections are protected from moisture. If your outlet does trip, dry your connections and reset your GFCI outlet.⁠

⁠ 🌧️ Check your Farmstand's pH after heavy rainstorms as rain can affect pH levels.⁠ Unsure of how to check your water's pH? Check out the video below for guidance!

⁠ ✂️ If you notice powdery mildew forming after a drizzly spell, prune the affected leaves or apply neem oil. Watch the video below for more information on how to prune your plants and read our extensive guide on pruning here.⁠
