We don’t need a greenhouse

A couple weeks ago, I dragged my boyfriend to a new greenhouse exhibit I was dying to go see. I love looking at all the different types of plants while staying toasty warm. I’m not sure why, but I’ve always been drawn to greenhouses since I was a kid. Well, this greenhouse was supposed to be massive, filled with the most colorful flowers. I couldn’t wait! While there, I was definitely not disappointed. I saw so many different types of flowers I hadn’t even known existed, and there were multiple rooms in this large greenhouse. One of the rooms actually caught me off guard a little. I didn’t realize it until I got to this specific room because of the vast temperature difference, but this giant greenhouse had climate controlled heating! Obviously, it had occurred to me before that different plants might need different climates and temperature ranges, but I had never seen a greenhouse that actually had functioning climate control in different areas of the greenhouse. This particular room happened to have a quaint little pond with koi fish in it. Typical pond fish, but I love koi fish so I didn’t mind. This was seriously the coolest greenhouse I had been to, and the various temperatures were comfortable to me! I think that if I ever build a greenhouse of my own, I may look into a similar structure and climate control system. I was certainly impressed. And honestly, I don’t know why more greenhouses don’t do this! Perhaps in the future the trend will begin to catch on. But for now, I knew what greenhouse I would be spending my time at!
