Mini Greenhouse

When looking at getting a mini greenhouse,  it’s important to understand which one will best fit your needs. The biggest decision you need to make is if you want to have a cold house greenhouse or a heated one. A cold house is the simplest type of greenhouse you can get because it has no way to heat the inside. The only disadvantage to this type is that the growing season is limited by the weather and when the first frost arrives.

The second item on the agenda is to look at what type of greenhouse you want. There are several different styles that are suited for different needs. The different types include a portable greenhouse, a hobby greenhouse and a mini greenhouse.

Using a Mini Greenhouse

Many people that are new to growing plants don’t fully understand how a mini greenhouse works. What happens is during the day the sun emits rays of short wave infrared light. The short wave infrared light is able to pass through glass. After hitting a surface the waves turn into thermal energy that can’t escape. The final touch to how the mini greenhouse works is the greenhouse gases. These gases simply act as a blanket for the greenhouse.
