  1. I recently bought a new house. It has this nice large flat garden area which is perfect for a large greenhouse. So I bought a Robinsons Regal greenhouse (12'7" x 20'10"). here are the photos of the construction, starting with the base ...
  2. Hi all, I installed the last sections of staging (all home made) in the greenhouse over the weekend and all is looking much tidier now! Very pleased with the look...
  3. Well, this is going to be my greenhouse (or more specifically, Nephouse) build thread. Starting from the very beginning When Ian Salter got me into Carnivorous plants 12 months ago, i was living in a first floor flat with no access to a garden, only my windowsills. A few weeks ago, i officially moved from South Wales to Wigan to be with my partner of 3 years full time. Roughly 20 years ago, she had a 24 foot x 10 foot static caravan installed in the garden to live in while the house was being demolished and rebuilt. This caravan was never removed after the house was finished, and remained a

  5. Hello everyone :) I am the owner of a 2,5 m x 3 m x 2,5 m (height) greenhouse, covered with PVC panels. I would like to heat it at about 13°C or 15°C during the Winter in order to grow a larger variety of plants, especially highland Nepenthes and Heliamphora, but I fear it would be extremely expensive. I live in Northern Italy and temperatures in Winter can be as low as -5°C... electricity is definitely unaffordable here I think, so I was thinking about using a small pellet stove... do you have idea?
  6. Hello everyone, As I'm planning on buying a greenhouse I'd just like to make sure the location is good and if there are any things I should consider when buying a greenhouse. First of all the location, on the location where I'd put the greenhouse it would in the summer get light as soon as the sun comes up until about 4 pm, after 4 pm the greenhouse would be in dappled shade for 1 to 2 hours before it doesn't get any sunlight at all. I presume this would be enough light for Sarracenia, vft, and a couple of drosera? Secondly the greenhouse itself, what requirements are there? By this I mean
  7. It's been a while since I last posted here! The last couple of years has been very busy with university, fieldwork, and travelling around various parts of Europe, with much time spent away from home. While I found time to tend to and tidy the hardy plants in the greenhouse from time to time, as a result my indoor collection, which I was very proud of, has shrunk considerably due to neglect and pests. I am looking to build it up again to some extent, especially with Drosera and Utricularia (I can't believe I lost my prized flowering specimens of U. quelchii and praetermissa - there was some sor
  8. Can anyone recommend a fan to circulate air in a wooden 6' x 8' greenhouse? I've got a Biogreen Phoenix fan heater in the other greenhouse but I don't want to spend anywhere near that kind of money this time. I'm looking for something which could preferably be mounted on the GH sides, so lightweight and compact would also be an advantage. I looked at this on TwoWests but although they claim it will circulate the air in an 8' x 12' GH 1.5 times an hour they also describe the air flow as a "gentle breeze" so I'm rather dubious about these claims. Has anybody tried one? Thanks for any a
  9. Hi there im wanting to soon grow my cps in a different area with out cacti and stuff.but i dont know what to grow in.what would be better a small plastic greenhouse a glass tererium or a grow tent.i like the grow tent and tererium as my plants will stay indoors in my collection is small around 4 plants at the moment but will be growing as all do.i have a budget of around £40 remember i will need to get some lights not matter what as now in autum/winter we hardly get sun light so im scared if my plants will the moment im growing all plants in a large plastic greenhouse housing 5
  10. I'm looking into making more space for me sarracenias so I'm looking at pollytunnles or glasshouses/greenhouses, but not sure what to go with! The size I'm thinking of is about 60ft by 20ft or so, it's a big investment so I want to get all the info I can! I know polytunnels are ok and that's where I keep my sarracenias at the moment but I know glasshouses are cheeper (in the long run!) but not as strong in HIGH winds compared to polytunnels. What do you think? I know a few polytunnle sites but could you give me some sites for cheep ish glasshouses or even second hand Dutch style ones.
  11. Hello, Sorry for not doing a separate forum post (too much time): I'm able to reply here for convenience sakes.
  12. Dear all, I guess many of you have experience over the years of the best method to grow certain species. I have an opportunity to start from scratch and in an ideal world would build an attractive greenhouse/conservatory that has drainage and heating to suit tropical plants especially carnivorous species (+ tropical cacti), as well as a cooler frost free section and more standard coldframe/cold house attached for other species such as saracenias. For those of you that know Winterbourne I am thinking along the lines of a smaller version of their tropical house/their cacti house and CPS displ
  13. Hi. Is it advisable to put a nepenthes sanguinea in an unheated greenhouse, all year around (possibly bringing it indoors during the worst of the winter)? It appears that many people have success growing them indoors on a windowsill. This is not necessarily an option for me - CPs not being popular with my other half! The greenhouse gets up to 40C and above on the hottest summer days. The second tier of my two-tier benches is possibly shadier and cooler. What do you think? Can it survive in these conditions?
  14. This year my vfts have been living on a sunny windowsill in my house which was less than ideal, but i have finally gotten hold of a greenhouse. average temperature in the house has been about 18-20C day and 16-18C night. However in the greenhouse, night time temps will be about 10c (50f). Will i need to acclimatize the plants or could i just transfer them straight in?. I have asked in another forum but only received one response so wanted to double check.
  15. I've finally set up my little greenhouse which shall house my limited collection of carnivorous plants. It's unheated, and in a sheltered position but it will be subject to below freezing winter temperatures. Having grown many CPs before, I know that it's fine for Sarracenia, Dionaea, Darlingtonia and some Drosera species - But I'd love to hear some recommendations as it's been a good few years since I last grew any carnivorous plants. I live in Hampshire, UK - just to give an idea; so winter minimums can potentially be as low as -10C for the odd spell, but more likely to be around -5C overn
  16. Could anybody advise on what thickness of double wall polycarbonate sheet would be best to insulate the ceiling and walls of my greenhouse over winter. Greenhouse is 8' x 12' and I've fitted some tube heaters but need the insulation so they're not running all the time. I'd like to keep temperatures 10C min for my N maxima, Pings, Utrics & Droseras. VFT's & Sarrs will be moved to a mini greenhouse where I'll let the temps go lower than that. I'm in Derbyshire in the middle UK so winters can go down to -5C or so, occasionally a bit lower (2010 being the exception at about -20,if that ha
