    The same goes for as the above.I wish I had seen that one before built mine.
    But I don't think we could get them.It still looks better than mine,partly
    because I built it before I knew how to grow the darn things.

    Every greenhouse is different and modifications are usually "doable". For a greenhouse, I think the key factors are light, humidity, and air movement. I have a 52" ceiling fan that runs on high 24/7 and will be putting oscillating fans just above leaf level. I'm thinking about a fog or mist system but I want to wait a while to see how things are as the seasons progress. As for light, I tried to place my greenhouse to get as much sun as possible. Shading is easy compared to putting lights up. A friend suggested using landscape fabric in the greenhouse for an area that needed to be shaded. Sounds like a good idea!

    Hi Wade,
    have you received my emails? My mailbox sometimes misbehaves so I sent you PM as well. Please let me know if you received any of my messages. I am ready to ship plants but I would like to discuss it with you first.

    Thanks
