Trying to keep our tropicals happy in the depths of winter!
One of the distinct advantages of having our mist propagation units up and running is that even when things are far from tropical in the wider green house, you can keep tenders at temperatures where they are happy.
While so far it hasn't been a very stark winter, the heated greenhouse is only kept a few degrees above zero. For plants like these young bananas and Ensetes, that really is too cold. So they are flourishing in the added warmth and humidity.
On a cold day it is very tempting to climb in and join them!
