  [Aroid-l] New greenhouses
From: Brian Williams <pugturd at alltel.net> on 2004.11.06 at 00:36:03(12347)
I am currently putting up 3 new greenhouses and maybe a 4th greenhouse.
I plan to have one greenhouse with raised beds to grow Amorphophallus
and Kempferia gingers and other odd things. The greenhouse is 20ft wide
and 48ft long. The floors will have radiant heat on the floor. I am
trying to figure a good temp to keep most the dormant bulbs in this
greenhouse I am thinking about lows at 48f ? This will be dry in the
winter and the plastic removed in the summer with a shade cloth. I will
probably also have many caladiums in this greenhouse as well. The other
greenhouse will be growing more philos and Anthuriums and will stay
around 50F for lows. The third greenhouse will be many for my fathers
hardy palms as well as many canna plants. With lows in the 15f to 30f
range. Does anyone know the best temp for the dormant bulbs in the
raised be for this setup? THANKS
