Solar Greenhouses Australia

Solar Greenhouses… Have you heard about this type of greenhouse? Well if not, it might prove to be a great investment if you wanted to take advantage of the vast amount of sunlight shining in your area. This greenhouse has the capability of trapping and storing thermal energy from the sun.  Solar greenhouses are constructed differently, as they may be in gabled or arched structures, cold frames or even subterranean pits. Active and passive – these are two types of solar greenhouses. Passive type of solar greenhouses are able to trap and store thermal energy by glazing, then converting it into heat and limiting the amount that is being released outside. While much of the absorbing is done by the plants living in this type of solar greenhouse, the materials inside it like the soil, water and rock are also absorbing heat that in turn will be used once the temperature falls. This will reduce heating costs in a greenhouse, except for the really cold winter months that this amount of heating is not enough to keep the plants healthy. Active solar greenhouses on the other hand require supplemental energy on the top of what passive solar greenhouses use to trap and store thermal energy. Aside from active and passive solar greenhouses, sun-pit greenhouses offer a more economical alternative to keep your greenhouse heated.  This type of greenhouse uses the […]

The Importance of Shading and Ventilation in Your Greenhouse

Yes, greenhouse plants need sunshine, but too much of a good thing is usually bad. During the burning heat of summer, you need to offer some protection to your plants to save them from getting scorched. Because your greenhouse is essentially also a glasshouse, in the middle of summer, it can be exposed to too much heat which, is potentially damaging. The temperature can shoot up to a level critical for your plants, especially the cultivated varieties like fuchsias, poinsettias, and orchids as well as newly germinated plants. Be In The Shade Your greenhouse needs to be placed in an area where it can receive sunshine, but in a way, you must also protect it from heat at certain times. Just what are the ways to help your plants cope when the summer is too hot to handle? The trick is to provide some shade. Paint your windows. It is a simple and cheap approach, but it works. Apply a layer of paint to your windows. If you don’t have an idea what colour or sort of paint to use, there are always brands available in your local hardware shops for this purpose. The glitch is – this approach is somewhat irreversible and can be a hassle, unless you like painting and removing paint on a yearly basis or when the situation calls for. Use curtains and blinds.

Cold House Versus Greenhouses : Which One is Right For You?

Due to the economic downturn felt around the globe at this moment, many are becoming interested in starting their own backyard garden that can supplement their food supply and decrease the expenses on food. However, not all places have the ideal weather that is conducive to grow crops. This is where greenhouses and cold houses come in. These types of farming/gardening structures are the most common methods of protecting the crops from the external forces that might affect their health during days when the temperature is extremely cold or hot. But the question is what is the most suitable for your area? Is it a greenhouse or a cold house? First let us define each gardening structure. Cold houses are solely dependent on thermal heat that would allow plants to be grown during months where the weather reaches it maximum temperature. However, this type of structure will not allow the cultivation of plants if the temperature inside it drops below 0 degrees Celsius. Greenhouses, on the other hand, are similar to cold houses in terms that they also use thermal energy coming from the sun, but their main difference is that there is a possibility to install a mechanical heating system which can be used when the thermal energy is not enough to keep the greenhouse heated. This particular feature of greenhouses makes them ideal for growers who are located […]

The Greenhouse Ventilation System

Systems for temperature control and air circulation are vital systems that you need to manage and maintain to realise the optimum use of your greenhouse ventilation.   Hobby gardeners usually face the challenges of management and maintenance of their own greenhouse. They have to learn the importance of the key factors that can provide the maximum productivity and a ventilation system is just one of the key factors for optimised use of the greenhouse. They have to consider many options to choose from in terms of providing equipment and its position for the services it can provide for the greenhouse.   When you have a greenhouse with no ventilation system installed, the range of temperature and humidity that prevails inside, most of the time, are the cause of a plants health deterioration and eventual demise.   Ventilation is as important as any other component of the greenhouse and you have to consider it with utmost urgency. It should also be complementary to other systems like heating, watering, damping, and other system-related activities, which you would usually do to manage and maintain your greenhouse. Therefore, the greenhouse ventilation system must be part of your plan and budget, particularly when you want to create an ideal environment where your plants can grow. Of course, you also have to consider the changes of environment that usually take place within a particular whole day. […]

Revolutionary Indoor Greenhouse: An application of Dewpoint Principle

This indoor growing cabinet is an actual application of the patented dewpoint principle, which assumes that air infused with water vapour provides cooling power around the leaves of cuttings and plants. It eliminates the loss of moisture from leaves, which encourages a healthy environment for root growth. The surface of the leaf would be dry to prevent moulds forming. Self-contained Dewpoint Cabinet This revolutionary dewpoint cabinet is completely self-contained and requires only connection to mains electricity. This growing cabinet simply provides an ideal environment that can help the germination of seeds as well as faster growth of cuttings. It only requires the least possible maintenance when continuously managed throughout the year. Assumptions of Dewpoint Principle The dewpoint principle assumes that when fresh air is infused with water vapour, it will provide a cooling environment around the leaves of cuttings and plants. The plant leaves would not dry out but would encourage better root growth. Structural Dimension of Dewpoint Cabinet The dimensional structure of the Dewpoint Cabinet has the approximate measure of 48 inches in length by 24 inches in width and can accommodate at least six standard seed trays. It has a thermostat-controlled heating tray system that warms the reservoir of water from which the saturated fresh air is pumped out. Above this water reservoir is a mesh which is put in place by you. The thin aluminium sides of […]
