Caring for your Greenhouse

Due to the increasing climate change issues, greenhouses have been popping up all over the U.S. and China. Numbers in greenhouse growers have increased over the last 25 years and now make a $12 million contribution to the food industry.

Unlike traditional farming techniques, you’re able to control the climate inside of your greenhouse by capturing heat from the sun with barrels of water or individual rocks placed strategically around your greenhouse. Growing your favorite fruits and veggies in a greenhouse ensures your crops are protected from the ever-changing climate.  Owning and maintaining a greenhouse allows us to supply more food for our increasing population. Greenhouses can be set-up and maintained just about anywhere. They’re already operating in places like the South Pole in Antarctica.

There are some disadvantages associated with greenhouse gardens. Your plants are more susceptible to pests and diseases, it’s harder for pollination to take place even with installing fans, and although, having the ability to control the climate, it can be tricky. The key is to make sure each plant receives its proper amount of moisture, sunlight and fertilization. It’s equally important to stay organized. Take advantage of large pots and layout benches so you’re able to maneuver and feed and water plants. We also recommend keeping a plant journal to keep track of how plants are growing and receiving your care and make adjustments when necessary. As a result, your plants will thrive.

Finally, keep your greenhouse healthy with clean filtered water. We recommend our 8 Watt UV Sterilizer from our Classic Series for your small to medium greenhouse kits. Our system will remove fluoride and chlorine from the water you feed to your greenhouse within 3-5 days and will continue to sterilize your water for your thriving plants.
