Example text

Fluorescent is a better source of growth-stimulating light for your greenhouse. It must, however, be hung relatively close to plants in order to benefit their growth. Ordinary incandescent lights aren’t particulary good sources of growth-promoting light, but they can help heat a greenhouse. And their attractive warm light also turns a greenhouse into a nighttime landscape design feature. Lighting Considerations ▸ The best lighting for growing greenhouse plants mimics natural light. Invest in lamps that resemble natural light in intensity and color (or combine lamps to provide a broad spectrum, as described above).

If you prefer to water plants from underneath, consider capillary mats. These feltlike mats are placed on top of the bench (which is first lined with plastic) This automatic drip watering system is fed by a garden hose that connects to the mixing tank. In the tank, water and fertilizer are blended to a custom ratio and then distributed to plants at an adjustable rate via a network of hoses, drip pins and Y-connectors (See Resources, page 236). NOTE: The spiral trellis supports hanging from the greenhouse roof are not part of the watering system.

They can be useful for extending daylight for some plants and for supplementing low light levels, but they are not an efficient primary source of light. Incandescent lights produce a lot of heat—hanging them too close to plants can burn foliage, but if you hang them at a safe distance, they don’t provide enough intensity for plant growth. The average life span of an incandescent bulb is about 1,000 hours. FlUORESCENT Fluorescent tubes are more expensive than incandescent bulbs, but the higher cost is amply offset by their longevity and efficiency: bulb life for fluorescents is about 10,000 hours, and they provide the same amount of light as incandescents with only ¼ to 1⁄3 the amount of energy.
