Good sanitation practices include keeping greenhouses clean at all times, eliminating weeds and debris, disinfecting equipment in greenhouses as often as possible and keeping hose ends off of the greenhouse floor. Good water management practices are critical for good, healthy plant growth. Watch for aphids and white flies and treat if necessary. If grown cold and wet, fungus gnats can be problematic. Good cultural practices will largely eliminate the issue.
