This is why a Greenhouse irrigation system is very important to larger greenhouses. For the smaller ones it is still a necessary component because you will not always feel like watering your plants so this will act as a nice way to take a break and still have peace of mind.
The Greenhouse Irrigation System is the answer to lost crops or plants and flowers that have been put into a stressed condition due to lack of water control.
These systems are fairly easy to install and operate, but they have to be properly designed in order to be beneficial. You can find a lot of this stuff online.
You can find a Hobby Irrigation System that costs around $205.00 for the main unit. This system includes Netafim drip emitters that allow for a totally automated system up to 36' long. It gives the right amount of water to plants and flowers on an automatic timer.
This system can also be extended to cover more ground if necessary.
Many online retailers can design the perfect irrigation option for any size greenhouse such as the JetRain Misting and Irrigation Nozzles. This system will evenly distribute water and can be adjusted per the distance needed as well as the type of flow.
It operates at 15 - 70 psi and is created with corrosion free components. Pricing for these systems will all depend on the needs of the greenhouse. You can contact them for an estimate.
Water is another major step in the health and growth of your plants. Just like the sun nourishes plants through photosynthesis, water is just as necessary for the livelihood of your garden.
Without sun or water your plants will surely wilt away. Just as having enough sun is important, more important is having the right amount of water. Too much water can drown your garden but not enough will suffocate it.
Even if you enjoy the manual aspect of watering your plants, it is important that you also install some sort of greenhouse irrigation system to make sure your plants are not neglected.
There are many choices and many of them are customizable to your exact specifications needed. Generally all options can be gauged to your needs, meaning once you set up your system you can always rearrange it to meet a new set up.
Thanks! You should try the mini greenhouses, they have a lot of sizes!
If my yard was big enough I'd have a nice little green house.
Congrats on #100 - very nice page.
Thanks Mira, Greenhouses are a lot of fun, we're building one out of our spare bedroom...
Congrats on reaching number 100! Great idea to write about greenhouses. I kept wondering how to grow certain plants, and you've inspired me to look into building some sort of greenhouse on my balcony.
