    Thanks Jayson, yea your right in my neck of the woods. Just 40 minutes away! Nice to meet ya.

    Thank you for the Barry's Faq link RL. That is a informative site. As for the the Savage Garden....I am waiting for my copy to hit the mailbox right now!

    I am contemplating using a room in the basement but right now the ambient temp down there is a scorching 50 Degrees! I suppose I could put my extra pellet stove down there for heat but that would be a detriment to my wallet just to keep a few cps through the winter. I guess the 4 tier mini greenhouse is what I am going to be using until I can fill it up. Thanks again!

    Right now I have the greenhouse set up in a spare bedroom upstairs. 72 degrees lights on, 63 degrees lights off. 60% relative humidity. Your right about filling up too quick, I'm already onto the second tier and more are on the way.

    I think a greenhouse along the grape vines is in order this spring for the Neps. I am getting ready to start ordering some dormant Sarracenia to put on a table in the spring. Should be good times this year.

    Thanks for the Welcome Exo!

    Howdy and welcome to TerraForums.

    Since you are new to CPs, I suggest you start off with easy CPs (Pinguicula Moranensis, Drosera Capensis, Nepenthes Ventricosa, etc)

    Thanks for the Welcome Exo!
    I would NOT recommend an outdoor greenhouse for Neps in our climate..
    its just too impractical to keep a greenhouse warm in the winter..
    (unless you dont mind paying $500 to $1,000 a month for heat all winter)
    you basically have to abandon the greenhouse for the winter and move all the plants indoors..
    and if you have the space for them indoors in the winter, you might as well just grow them there all year long!

    Greenhouses in our climate really only make sense to make it 50 degrees in March, and 50 degrees in October..(to extend the growing season for outdoor plants by a month in either direction)..but then they are ovens in the summer, and frozen in the winter..just not practical around here..

    As far as the greenhouse goes, I meant to use it in the spring. Not during the winter. It will be a lean-to type. Almost Identical to this

    Had one of these at the first house I ever bought and it was full of all sorts of dwarf fruit trees and such. Pretty much anything I came across I stuffed in there.
    The species that need some dormancy will go in there to over winter and the others back inside the house.
