Portable Greenhouse

A portable greenhouse can be very effective for consumers who like to move or travel a lot. It’s important to understand what kind of portable greenhouse will best fit your needs. The biggest decision you need to make is if you want to have a regular greenhouse or a heated one.

A regular greenhouse is the simplest type of portable greenhouse you can get because the interior is heated naturally. 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.

Operation of a Portable Greenhouse

A portable greenhouse operates in the same manner a non portable greenhouse would. 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 is a long wave infrared light that can’t escape. The final touch to the greenhouse is the greenhouse gases. These gases simply act as a blanket for the portable greenhouse.
