    Slowly getting back into the game.

    So I am slowly getting back into it after moving 2400 miles and having to leave my plants behind. I have a dormant Venus Fly Trap and a dormant Sarracenia. The rest in the pic are just some perennial flowers we are growing from seed.


    Should I keep the greenhouse zipped shut? I am in Washington State now.


    My lonely Carnivours haha


    My side of the yard. It is on the East side of the house.
    Currently I own Dormant 1 VFT, 1 Dormant Sarracenia & One Purple Pitcher

    Hopefully you can rebuild your collection. I would keep it shut for right now since your in WA. It's still cold there right? Like lower than the 60s during the day?

    i used to have the exact same minigreenhouse/growrack which i now use as shelving lol
    but anyway when the sun hits that thing it will very quickly heat up to 100+ degrees

    In the Summer you will have one heck of a time keeping that thing cool once it starts getting in the upper 60s to 70s i would take the plastic comepletly off because i have temps in the 80s right now and if i have it closed it gets over 100 degrees in their and same thing if i leave it unzipped. It's best to leave the plastic off during the Summer.

    well now its probably ok... but keep an eye on it, but yeah when the sun hits it, man will it steam up...
    i walked into my cold frame GH today and even at 55 outside, when the sun hit it directly, without ventilation and a fan going, it was 80 or so.

    It's good to have during the winter but NOT DURING SUMMER period.
