Default my small summer greenhouse

i usually grow my plants under lights but I got a small 8x6 greenhouse at the start of the year. am only using it for the summer, think it will be too expensive to use in the winter. its a lot less maintenance when theyre in the greenhouse atm which has been a good thing.

my pulchra red has a really long spike so I assume that it will keiki soon. a few are look a bit sick but most are growing quickly.

a few more pictures, theres shade netting up. also an autovent and lots of bubble wrap.

there's also an 2kw industrial heater on the floor near the fan plugged into an accurate thermostat.

under the benches there are 8 x 25 liter tubs with water in them.

thanks

don't think I could have coped with the watering over the summer without the greenhouse.

I bring a few of them in the house when they're flowering, mostly they don't bud blast
