Rick's Greenhouse

Back to Home Page

My goal this year is to have flowers all winter. So far, so good. I have about 10 plants still blooming and about 20 other getting ready to bloom. I have some fans in there to keep the air moving. I also spray regularly to keep the fungus and black tip under control.

Here is a picture of my 1999-2000 greenhouse. I had just stuffed all the plants in the greenhouse area and was getting ready to put the plastic over the frame. This is a good picture because it shows the lighting. The lights in the green house are always on from dusk to dawn.

Here is the greenhouse after I covered it with 6mil plastic.

Inside the greenhouse. The greenhouse is heated by a 20,000btu gas heater. Temperatures inside the greenhouse usually get to a low of 56F at night and about 95F to 110F during the day.

My Greenhouse last winter (Winter of 1998-99). The plants have grown so the green house this year is a bit bigger.

This is what makes all the hard work worth the effort. (Taken in January 2000 in the greenhouse)
