Huge temperature variation

Recommended Posts

This is my first year with a greenhouse.  I've never wanted one before, but getting interested in CPs prompted me to buy one.

This morning it was very frosty down here in Dorset.  The greenhouse dropped to 3°C.  This is the lowest it can get, as there's a heater in the greenhouse which is set to come on at 3°C and go off at 5°C.

It's been a beautiful day and the temperature in the greenhouse is now just under 28°C.  This is with the two roof windows open, the floor vents open and the door open.

This is a huge temperature variation over a very short period of time.  It'll probably get cold again tonight.

How well do CPs cope with this huge variation?

Like Ada I grow my Sarracenia, Cephs and vft's in an unheated greenhouse without any issues. The only ventilation they get when it is hot is provided by the automatic opening roof vents.
