Greenhouse DWC Hydroponic Bibb Buttercrunch Bolting

by Lee
(Rainbow City, Al, USA)

Ok. I grow DWC Hydro Bibb Buttercrunch and I have not had any issues with bolting until now. I went from a 30% Shade Cloth to a 70% Aluminet Shade Cloth. Within a week every bit of my lettuce has started bolting.... about 3,000 plants. I'm pretty sure changing from 30 to 70 had a huge effect, brought temp from 110 during the day to 85-90 during the heat of the day. Since every plant has done this if I replant them all under the shade of the 70% Aluminet and grow from seedling should the bolt not happen.... I've got plenty of wind current and humidity... I'll be putting a Wet Wall in this coming week. Should I wait until I put my wet wall in before replanting all my tables?

Bolting

The type of lettuce is the culprit IMHO, Heat makes it bolt, also shortening of daylight makes any plant go to seed so when you upped the shade cloth the plants got less light, I suggest, if you cannot wait until colder weather , grow it inside under a fluorescent tubes.
