Pay Attention to Heating and Humidity Levels

Winters are the most difficult seasons for gardeners. It requires extra plant care and temperature control efforts. You can easily improve your plants’ health inside a greenhouse by installing greenhouse heaters and thermostats. A greenhouse exhaust fan can also work both ways to maximize airflow and heat diffusion inside a conservatory.

Know What You’re Growing

Identifying your plant’s needs is the first step in ensuring its health and well-being. Without knowing the optimum temperature, water, moisture, and air requirements, growing plants with drastically different needs in a small greenhouse can be difficult.

Scheduling is Highly Critical

A lower temperature in winter increases flowering and germination timelines. Several studies show that plants tend to grow slowly in colder environments. Scheduling plays a pivotal role in determining when and how well your plants will develop inside a greenhouse.

For example, a flower called Purple Wave takes 57 days to grow and bloom at 68 degrees. The same will require 88 days if the temperature drops to 61 degrees.

Pest Management

Foliar diseases are the most common wintertime risk to greenhouse plants, especially inside a small greenhouse due to compact spaces. You should learn about implementing anti-pest fungicide treatments to prevent root dryness, leaf scaling, and thrip damage.

Whiteflies attack during wintertime without an alarm. Therefore, regular monitoring is mandatory for maximizing plant protection in winter.
