shade cloth greehouse

jebertOctober 22, 2008

AFTER MUCH TRIAL AND ERROR I DECIDED TO BUILD A SHADE CLOTH GREEHOUSE WITH 4X4 AND 2X4 PRESSURE TREATED WOOD. WILL NEED A FAN AND WILL INVEST ON A PORTABLE HEATING

UNIT FOR OUR ONE NIGHT A YEAR, WHEN I MIGHT NEED IT. DOES ANY ONE IN MY ZONE HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE OR ANY TIPS, IDEAS, SUGGESTIONS (PICTURES). THEY WILL BE GREATLY APRECIATED. I HAVE VISITED PLENTY OF COMMERCIAL ONES IN MY AREA.

THANK YOU-MISS. FREESIA.

Sorry can't help much with the shadehouse - unfortunately don't live in Florida :( I think you would get more responses on the forum side as Charm mentioned. Also, an FYI in case you didn't know - All caps is generally used to indicate that you are screaming, it's also a little hard to read.
Best,
~Jem

In Florida where for 99% of the year the climate is ideal for orchids, you don't want to spend too much on heating. On the few nights when those cold northwesterlies do bring the temperature right down your best option is probably a small paraffin heater. They are not ideal for long term heating as they produce a lot of CO2 and water vapor but where you are I would go for one.
