heating a greenhouse?

So, I'm toying with the idea of making a tropical plant greenhouse, but I live in massachusetts. How would you heat a greenhouse in the winter? Wood stove, I'm thinking, better yet a pellet stove where you can set the temperature it should be at? Do they make vents that open and close automatically depending on the temperature?

Thanks in advance.

RE: heating a greenhouse?

they make automatic everything lol First decide what you want to grow how large a space and most important
how much you want to spend . Don't forget operating costs .In your area the big thing will be winter of course along with sun light. Check around the web among the hundreds of GH sites . There's also a GH forum will give you some direction on the hundreds of possibilities
good luck gary
