The greenhouse: a place where plants flourish and grow like wildfire, right? Well, yes and no.
A greenhouse works by forcing nature. Cold or variable weather outside; controlled, warm temps and humidity inside. This isn’t how nature works, but the controlled environment lets the grower get a little wacky and experiment with different techniques. I have all kinds of growing experiments running, not just inside the greenhouse. I stick seeds in the freezer and refrigerator, or soak them for 48 hours in water, and then cut the outer skin.
At night I close up the fort and turn clip lights on just to produce a little heat ahd keep them within ideal temperatures. During the day I there is enough solar created heat to keep them happy. Sometimes it’s even so warm I need to open the door and turn on a fan. It’s a lot of babying!
After all this work I am still not sure if I will see flower from this experimental crop. Waiting for the flower is the hardest part–and it takes years of experimenting to learn the precise recipe that will make the flowers thrive best.
***I do not recommend our precarious lighting for heat system they are very close to row covers this not safe.. do so at your own risk!***
