My propagation greenhouse

Post by Cidermanrolls » Sun Jan 17, 2021 5:37 pm

Three pics from my smallest greenhouse. This is kept at about 8c and houses my Epiphytes, my Copiapoas and is where I do my seed raising. The two Vitopod propagators are set to 21c and each has two aquarium led strip lights. You can see from the colour of the seedlings that these lights do a decent job.
In summer the propagtors are covered with a muslin cloth to give shade and keep the, cool.

Looks great. Do you need the lights on through the day or just to extend the day length?

When they are bigger most go in to one of my other greenhouses. I have just over 300 sq feet split between three other greenhouses. Spares will probably go to ebay to subsidise my heating costs.
The lights are on a simple timer. At this time of year they are on from 6am to 8pm. In summer they are turned off.
