Inside My New Tropical Hoop House

Here in Bedford, New York, temperatures today are expected to reach 50-degrees Fahrenheit - quite warm for this time of year.

Yesterday was also unseasonably warm - 64-degrees Fahrenheit - warm enough to open my tropical greenhouses just a bit to let in some fresh air. I now have three large hoop houses where I store most of my tropical plants over winter. The last one was completed just a few months ago to accommodate my growing collection of potted specimens. These large structures are made from steel frames and polyethylene panels. Inside, the temperature and humidity levels are monitored and can be adjusted when necessary. And every few days, I like to go into each one to see how all the plants are doing.
