Many of our customers wonder if it is practical to grow orchids in a greenhouse, and the answer to the question is undeniably yes. In actual fact, a greenhouse provides the perfect environment for orchids to grow and flourish. In general terms plants often bloom more frequently whilst being more vigorous and healthy especially when in a greenhouse.
You as grower can ensure your orchid plant receives the correct light levels and the perfect temperature. Certainly you will have a great deal of control as far as temperature. And if you choose an orchid partial to bright sunny locations as most orchids tend to appreciate bright sunlight that is not too harsh then you can affect this aspect as well within a greenhouse.
With temperature control, orchid plants such as Vandas in tropical climates grow hardily, whilst other types of like the Phalaenopsis prefer a slight dip in temperature during the hours of night time. This can be easily facilitated within a greenhouse environment. Therefore you can provide the perfect environment within greenhouse for a range of orchid types.
Remember, you also need to consider the light requirements of your orchids not only temperature requirements. Eg. Phalaenopsis orchids prefer bright sunny spots however; don’t flourish if there is an abundance of light. Once again a greenhouse environment will give you greater flexibility to control certain elements that your orchids will be dependent on.
When selecting a greenhouse for orchid growing it is important to purchase from a seller that provides you will all the options to help control the temperature. The most necessary elements are things such as heating options, ventilation louvers and most importantly shading systems that are effective and have a rigid support frame.
A greenhouse will allow you to have an environment where you can grow orchids all year round which also provides you an place to retreat, take care of your beloved orchids and enjoy their fragrance.
Happy greenhouse gardening!
