    Default Best heater for my Florida Orchid Greenhouse

    Hello and Happy Holidays!!!!
    I have a question, I live in Florida and last year it got very cold in the area, had to bring my orchids inside the house. I have them in a small greenhouse now 12'X8', what's a good heater to put there when the temps drop. We been lucky that the lowest this year has been in the 50's
    Thanks for the responses.

    Big box stores carry a variety of tower heaters/ room heaters with a thermostat. they range from 45 to 55 dollars. If your roof of the greenhouse isn't too high they should work.

    Thank you D,
    The roof is not high, the green house is 12'X8'X7'....
    So a heater for a medium size room should work?
    Thanks,
