temperate regions. However, when winter comes, it is necessary to supply the plants with heat
and light to stimulate growth. The heat usually comes from a steam system or hot air

During the summer, the windows would be covered to reduce light intensity. The greenhouse
structure will allow the heat is easily reduced. This is done by opening the fans or the
concealment of the crystals.

Humidity is maintained by the water supply in the soil. When the greenhouse effect needs
