Growing and training Grapes
Hello, I have an aquaponic room. 7' by 17'... I have 4 5000 lumin lights down the center of room with 4 grow light over IBC and 4 more in Back of room for babies...my Water temp is always 75. room is 75-84... Ventilation is wonderful. I have 3 grape babies coming due to I have a dream. I would like to container grow my grapes (red Catawba, white Niagara, blue Concord).. and train these babies to grow across my ceiling. of course strong trellis I am putting in will be needed to tie and work with the babies. Due to I live in Shipping Containers the Brackets are already built in. Question. I am working with a 7' floor to ceiling steal wall. how far up the wall should I go to have my grapes flow/grow across the ceiling? I could put up floor lighting aimed at them? I only using Full Spectrum For trees and dirt ground veggies..Do grapes require the multi colored full spectrum lighting?. Most of full spectrum are desert grade due to better Lumins. The rainforest Lumins I keep in my personal room for my Macaw. I only use full spectrum for my house due to we are underground. It is better for all living things. I do have one corn light due to my Sage Loves it. Thank you. I know I live differently then most people. I do believe I can therefore I will try. If you have other question you ask email me; Have a great day.
