    First of all.. that's a grow hut/tent/rack. The difference is you can walk into a greenhouse. But one benefit of owning a grow tent is you can keep it in the house and control every aspect of it's climate, light, heat, humidity.. etc. etc. If I were you, I would put it in the house all year round, add some lights to each rack, maybe a fan, some trays of water under the plants to keep the humidity up.. and boom, a completely controlled grow environment.
    Nice addition.. your CP's should love it.

    Well i would need to put some lights in there and i have some florescent bulbs like T12? I think and they are really long and the wouldn't fit on top or inside of the greenhouse so i guess i will have to buy some or i can get some more light bulb connecter sockets the ones where you can screw a light bulb in a cocket and on the other end you can plug it in the wall that's what i am talking about and put three-four of those on one shelf and use one shelf or less those shelfs are big and thanks for the advice and i can always need more so keep up the advice and Mass do you mean to say DO NOT PUT IT OUTSIDE? Or just saying what you think and what is best?

    I agree with Mass on this. When you asked in the chat about greenhouses your grow rack is not what I thought you were talking about. I have one of those and gave up using the plastic for anything outside. It was no help in creating a microclimate outside and was only good for a windbreak. I ended up just using the rack as a place to put plants out on the porch for the summer.
    Keep it inside where you can create a nice enclosed microclimate for your plants.

    and they do make fixtures that fit those racks nicely.. I think they are what.. 2'er's (24")? And being that the bulbs are that close to the plants, T12's should be fine.
