Plants are only in the prop house for a short time, so cleanout is done more often, but often not as rigorously, making it difficult for beneficial insects to establish. How can beneficial microbes make a difference? They can catch air currents, covering all the surfaces of the greenhouse and be easily transferred via water. Some microbes have endophytic relationships with plants, to help plants grow healthier and faster, reducing prop time by 10% or more.
