Default Re: Winter time again....I need a cheap greenhouse....

The beauty of living here in south florida is that we can grow just about all the cultivars without worry of frost. We're fortunate in the sense that we can also observe the growth of the plants year-round - not just a few months out of the year. I have noticed things do slow down for sure (if not a complete stand still) when winter temps dip into the 50's at night. Basjoo, musella, and ensete love to cool weather. For a small green house, I'd grow these bananas..truly tiny, and super dwarf cavendish. In a larger greenhouse I'd also recommend growing Raja Puri, dwarf namwa, dwarf orinoco, dwarf cavendish, and mohoi cavendish. There's probably others that are also suitable, but those come to mind..
