    Exclamation New setup and/or greenhouse!

    Hi everyone i have finnaly got my own greenhouse and i have lots of questions so first here are the pics.

    http://i1194.photobucket.com/albums/...Picture518.jpg

    http://i1194.photobucket.com/albums/...Picture521.jpg

    Ok so there are the pictures and now for the questions. Should i leave the greenhouse outside and still put my carnivorouse plants in their (tropical carnivorous plants) or would it be to hard to care for them and just move them inside of the barn? But then i would have to do something about light and that might be a prob. and right their it gets at least 7 hours of sunlight a day at least right now in the Summer it will be more but right now it is getting 7-9 hours of direct sunlight a day. So any suggestions or anything i don't want to kill my tropical plants so please help me on anything i am doing wrong or what i should or anything thanks as you can see i have some Bonsai in thier to and if i can put my CPs in thier i will have a Ultrasonic fogger in thier thank you.
    You can look at my growlist and look at all of my tropicals and those are the ones i will be moving in the greenhouse except maybe the Heliamphora and it depends but also maybe my Cephalotus.

    judging by the trees in the background come summer you may end up with less light....once the canopy forms and the trees fill in with leaves it will block out alot. Is there a window in your house that get s alot of sun? what i do is i put mine in front of the window so the top half gets a lot of natural light then the lower half i used artificial lighting. Once your temps are enough def try outside jsut make sure with direct sun it doesnt over heat thos little buggers can get over 100 inside real quick i cut a hole in mine at the top to allow air flow with a fan sucking hot air out.

    umm well id say once it warms up and there are no more chances of frost put them outside, just makes sure you tie it down, the wind will blow it away and destroy everything inside.

    Well, I can say one thing....I'm willing to bet than in the summer, you will probably have problems with overheating, especially for things like the ceph.

    Hot day + hot sun on greenhouse = Steamed vegetables.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
