Greenhouse Irrigation FAQs
How Does a Greenhouse Work?
A greenhouse is an indoor growing structure for plants. The structure is made of glass or clear plastic sheeting which allows sun rays to enter. Plants convert this to heat energy and release it into the air, which helps the building stay warm. A greenhouse also retains moisture in the air and keeps pests away. This reduces water consumption and extends the growing season.
How to Use a Greenhouse?
There are many ways you can grow plants in a greenhouse. Some people do traditional row gardening so they can produce vegetables and herbs year-round. You can also use a greenhouse to start seedlings and tender plants, giving them a protected area to sprout. Others take advantage of the hot, humid environment to grow tropical and exotic plants that wouldn't otherwise be possible in their region.
How to Keep Greenhouse Warm in Winter?
Those who live in a colder region may still need to heat a greenhouse in winter. A popular option is to create a thermal mass that absorbs heat during the day and releases it at night. This consists of plastic jugs or large barrels filled with water and placed in direct sunlight. You can paint the containers black to absorb more heat. Other options are to add a space heater or create a compost hotbed that releases heat as materials break down.
