    Convection venting (natural hot/cool air flow) is the cheapeast method...as is opening the door! But to be EFFECTIVE is another deal, swamp cooling in the best form for a CP greenhouse, next in line would be a fog/misting system activated, then have exhaust fans engage to create an evaporative effect.

    Wouldn't it be easier to sheer the sheep to keep them cool? And a green house might be too confining for them. My mom used to let hers run around in her yard. Kept the grass short and fertilized [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    I just open the door...
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    tuna- me too, it doesnt really help that much a little, I have a little fan I use but I want to upgrade from that

    SP- The sarrs arent the ones I am worried about, my darlintonia, dionaea, and even some of my lowland neps! as well as a few of my daylilies that i recently got interested in after meeting one of the hybridizers
