Outdoor growing greenhouse

Hi There!
I am looking at your complete outside system for my orchids. I would put it on my deck that gets afternoon sun. Will the shade cloth protect the orchids from the sun or would they need additional protection.

Thank you!

Mini Greenhouse for Outdoor Growing
by: The Hydroponics Guy

Glad you asked!

I've had great success with the mini greenhouse from FarmTek (farmtek.com - enter mini greenhouse in search box).
Get their 4 Season-4 Tier Mini greenhouse with the 60% black knitted shade cover. The shade cover is perfect for protecting your plants from sun. DO NOT use the plastic cover that comes with the package. It's simply too hard to regulate the temperature with that cover.
Our grower trays work great for growing plants in culture pots (no outer pots) with this greenhouse.
Finally, be sure to secure the structure to a deck railing or add a brick paver on the bottom shelf. It's a real mess if it blows over in the wind.
