Sunroom - what do you use for a heater?
We are having a sunroom built so that we can overwinter our cacti and other plants that won't survive the winter outdoors but love being out for the spring & summer, and also to have a living space where we are surrounded by plants. This is our "porch/greenhouse" compromise, since we couldn't have all three!
The room is relatively small, 10' X 16' and will have electricity, but no built in heat source. We would like to be able to keep it about 60 degrees overnight in the winter to keep the plants comfortable. We are hoping that a water fountain will maintain enough humidity for the plants to thrive (not that cacti need alot, but there will be other plants, too.)
I am considering getting one of the oil-filled electrical heaters for this purpose. Does anyone have experience with these heaters? Any brand recommendations? Something else we should consider?
Any suggestions are more than welcome!
