    More pics! I made a walk-through screen and weighted it with some chain. Wind would push it open, so I used an old speaker magnet and this keeps the shade cloth from blowing around. This is my spring summer set-up where I need less direct light. In a month or so I'll put a couple fans in to help cool things down in summer!

    Hurricane Hermine is rolling through and my greenhouse is still standing! Probably had some 40-60mph gusts, too. I went inside and the hanging baskets were swaying a little, and when a gust would hit the plastic would vibrate or buckle slightly. Just a little shimmy in the frame, but hardly noticeable. I did close the vents and doors to make the structure more solid. Here are some pics!

    Awesome Okee



    Wanted to keep these protected during the storm




    Recently transplanted, trying for a huge mass of Drosera. Lined the metal/pinestraw basket with some plastic gareden fence to keep the sphagnum from falling out.



    This Nep loves the greenhouse. There are multiple new growth points forming from the base!

    Unhappy

    So it made it through another hurricane! Highest wind gust recorded was 65 mph on an Island 20 miles away. Luckily, my greenhouse is on the SW corner near my house. Gave some shelter, but every time I shined the flashlight, it was still there! The next morning the Wife and I went out in some rain gear and checked on things. It was misting and about 15-30mph winds, the doors had caved in a little, and I believe this caused some pressure which blew out one roof panel. We couldn't find it in our yard, so we went in the neighbors yard and found it about 20ft away. Snapped it back together around 630am.

    This one fell one the ground

    I can't bring myself to cut off the old pitchers!

    I keep this Sarr in the greenhouse to see the difference from outside. So far, the colors are brighter and less green and coppery.

    My poor Bical I went into the greenhouse a few months ago to see a pitcher on the media. At first I thought it may have been a leaf-cutter, but after noticing 4 total pitchers gone I was wondering what was going on. After some CSI, I realized a rat had eaten the tendrils and pitcher rims for the nectar! The very next day I bought a couple rat traps and scolded my Dogs. Ok, I didn't scold my dogs, but I did look at them sternly!
