What a Green House from Florian Sunrooms Can do For Your Plants

Green houses are commonly used as an indoor garden space and a source for natural light. Considering the natural light that gets let into the space, this is the perfect place to keep plants. That said, if you just want to get more natural light in your house, we have seen customers use our green houses as living rooms, libraries and patios.

When you choose Florian Sunrooms as your green house builder, you can have peace of mind that our addition will be able to sustain your indoor garden. Our Geneva green house outshines any other horticulture system on the market, and here’s how:

Sturdy Support for Wider Spacing: Geneva’s unique horizontal dividers support glazing on all sides, and brace against lateral wind loading, glass breakage. The sturdy streamlined support bars permit wider spacing so that your plants can reap the benefits of sunlight.

It also provides a comfortable place where you can nurture and protect your delicate plants from going dormant.

Controlled Environment: Our green house models allow you to control your environment with our Low – E glass, to ensure that your plants are exposed to the right temperature to encourage health and growth.

The Best Green House Plants for Your Addition

Our greenhouses provide the ideal environment for plants due to their durable materials and controllable climate that can be modified to suit your garden’s needs.

According to Gardening Know How, the best green house plants are the ones that fall under 3 categories: vegetables, ornamentals and tropical plants.

Vegetable Plants: Vegetables can fall into two categories; cool season crops and warm season crops. These are both ideal for green houses dependant on the temperature. If you opt for an unheated green house, you’re better off opting for cool season crops like carrots, peas, broccoli and lettuce. That said, we do offer heating options for our green houses if you are more inclined for warm season vegetables like peppers, tomatoes, squash and cucumbers.

Ornamental Plants: These are plants that can be categorized as either sun or shade-loving annuals. These plants can grow just about anywhere but thrive indoors. In a green house, these plants are able to pollenate and multiply. These types of plants include geraniums, petunias, fern and more – all of which make for a stunning green house garden.

Tropical Plants: Tropical plants are easily one of the best plants for green houses like ours that provide temperature control. With the right temperature and humidity setting, tropical plants can thrive in a green house. Small carnivorous plants like venus flytraps and orchids make great additions to this space that’s filled with natural light. Using our Triple Glaze R # 10 glass.

 

Frequently Asked Questions About Green Houses

Before embarking on your green house project, there are some key things you’ll want to know about the addition:

What is a green house?

The Merriam Webster dictionary defines a greenhouse as “a structure enclosed (as by glass) and used for the cultivation or protection of plants.” Green houses are typically used for gardening purposes and to bring natural light into a home.

Where should I put my green house?

Location is a huge factor to consider when installing your greenhouse – where do you want the addition to go? The placement of the green house will play a major role in the success of your garden.

For example, according to Popular Mechanics, you’ll want a south facing greenhouse to ensure sunlight all year round. Keep in mind that you won’t want your addition located under the shade of other buildings, as this will block the sun. Majority of rooms are built off of the kitchen where we spend most of our time.

How does a green house work?

Due to internal heating, the inside of a green house will remain warm throughout all seasons. Green houses are made of glass, which lets sunlight shine directly into the space.

It is because of this access to controlled temperature and direct natural sunlight that green houses are used for indoor plants. The addition provides plants with the sun and temperature they need to thrive, allowing for a stunning indoor garden area.
