Hi @GrowingViking. I’ve a similar set up to you this year I think. I’ve always done the gorilla grows but have now a bit of a garden and going to try a little plastic green house. Any tips on dealing with the fluctuation in temps and humidity? 


Truthfully mate with the little plastic ones I found it’s more a game of keeping that condensation off them. 
 

Keeping dry is the name of the game for me this year. Last time I was out almost every morning opening up the greenhouses, shaking water off left and right, giving the plants And everything else as much time in the sun as possible to dry off before plonking them back inside. 

 

if you have a shed available it could offer some additional warmth for any cold evenings we have. 
 

I’m considering even digging a spot at the top of my garden and chucking one plant in just for the fun of it.

Another little update

 

Everything has popped and sprouted leaves. The girls are alive and enjoying the sunshine. They go out off the window ledge into the sunshine when I get up, and then brought it when the sun goes down or if the weather turns.

This is not all of them but you can see we’re all off!

They’re looking wicked man nice work! 
 

I’m a bit paranoid about the cold at night so while they’re small I plan on bringing them in. 
 

I have a new little greenhouse I’m yet to build also that they’ll eventually go into.

Says my last predicted frost is the second week of May so seems spot on given how cold it is here tonight.
