  Re: An Aroid greenhouse question
From: Plantbob at aol.com on 1998.06.06 at 19:24:20(2234)

Heating a greenhouse full of any type of plant is always a challenge. I have
kerosene for years with no negative effect on my Aroids. It did effect my
jades, and some of the other flowering plants such as passion flowers.

Now I use a wood burning stove. It is more work and mess, but it is clean
Just keep the humidity high.

I think the best heat is a vented natural gas heater, if the cost justifies
the pleasure
of the plants (most plant nuts like us will justify the cost). I plan on
converting to
natural gas in the near future.

Good luck in preparing for this winter, which I hope NEVER comes.
