Plants for cold shaded greenhouse

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend plants for my cold shaded greenhouse ?

I have grown Venus Flytraps with limited success due to the lack of sunshine getting to my greenhouse. I have a few Cephalotus that seem to be coping quite well.

Pings. Perhaps Darlingtonia. Also some non carnivorous Disa and Pleione orchids.

I'd go along with Richards suggestion of Pings, also Bromeliads might be possible although I'm definitely no expert on those.

It could be too cool for Bromeliads. I'm no expert either and there may be some more cold tolerant ones.

Can't you just remove the shading or relocate the greenhouse (or your house)???

I'm with Richard, you wouldn't be the first person to relocate to enable you to grow the plants you want to. :tu:

Utricularia nelumbifolia seems to do well in shade and is ok with cool cnditions (but not freezing).

Some of the more common Drosera, like capensis, should probably stand conditions like these. Not ideal, but they should manage

The location of the original poster. Leeds gets pretty damn chilly in winter, like most of the UK really. (In Sheffield a few years back we had a night at -17C)
