Indiana Winters, Mini Greenhouse, Growing...

Postby EverDave » Wed Sep 22, 2010 6:29 pm

Hello all, It's me again ;)

So, I live in Fort Wayne, Indiana and I just bought this mini greehouse to store my CP's and other stuff in.

1st. This is my first Greenhouse and I want to make sure I do it right. I know I need to provide some sort of heat in here
and I am going to try this idea but on a smaller scale.

I have it placed on the East side of my house so it gets the morning sun. It is also mostly blocked from the
northern winds so it shouldn't get the full blast of the winter winds. It does get cold here.

2nd. What can I grow in here during the winter? Will my CP plants survive? I also have some Serracenia Seedlings
in the DuneCraft kit. Will they be ok?

Thank you all once again for all of your expertise and kindness in helping answer my ramblings. This is a great Forumn. :mrgreen:

Hi, first off, ive got the exact same one as you :P The back top metal pole was slightly bent and wouldnt fit in so its constantly hitting my sarrs and bending the pitchers back. I hope yours doesnt do the same! In India im guessing its hot, cps like temprature around 25*c and lower in the winter, therefore you might not even need that case on top. Never close it, or it would burn everything. East sounds like a good idea, im thinking of moving mine from south as ive already had a few accidents!

The greenhouse we have, is terrible at keeping heat. It only makes the current sunrays more powerful, so if it was snowing outdoors then it would easily get below 0 in there. Id suggest germinating your seeds indoors.

Good luck!
