Phaelenoposis orchids are incredibly easy to grow in a greenhouse. They are low maintenance plants which bloom for extended periods of time. Heating and cooling, combined with low light keeps them blooms for weeks at a time.
A miniature orange tree grows inside a sunroom. The tree is grown in a 24” diameter container. It lives outside for the summer and comes inside for fall and winter. Inside the greenhouse it receives plenty of sunlight, heat and water. It has produced one orange this year.
All these plants were started for free by propagation. Breaking off a leaf of an existing plant and sticking it in soil will create new growth. It is incredibly easy to make new plants without spending a dime. All you need is a container, soil, heat and light. I use these to create new container gardens during winter when garden stores are closed for the season.
A raised bed made out of felt grows inside a greenhouse. Purple heart, moses’s coat, aloe and succulents grow inside the container. A heated greenhouse allows the plants to continue growing through winter.
Summer flowers continue to grow inside a cold frame, even with the outside world frosting. The cold frame provides protection to the flowers and insulated the space with heat from the glass lid which allows the plants to continue growing.
Ruby Red banana tree. This is a special kind of banana tree that has red leaves. It is growing in a flower pot inside a heated and cooled greenhouse. The glass walls and heater allow the banana to continue growing over winter. The brighter the light the redder the leaves become.
