Build the Perfect Environment™
Orchids have long been thought of as one of the most difficult flowering plants to care for. Allow Solar Innovations, Inc. to design an orchid greenhouse to meet your specific needs. Our orchid greenhouses can incorporate essential elements for orchids such as shading, heating, cooling, watering, and nutrient control systems. Available in nearly any shape or size, orchid greenhouses can be completely custom designed to meet each customer’s needs.
Solar Innovations® orchid greenhouses are designed to create a stable environment for the plants which can be critical to their success. These structures can withstand the temperature and humidity requirements of the plants. Solar Innovations’® thermally broken system is complete throughout the greenhouse and is included for all accessories, sills, doors, windows, and ridge and eave vents. The unique thermal isolator in the aluminum system allows for increased thermal performance while maintaining architectural appeal. Orchid greenhouse environments are also improved with high performance glazing which incorporates stainless steel spacers within the glass panels. This provides a more stable internal environment despite the changes in external temperatures.
Generalized Orchid Requirements
|Foot Candles||500-4,000||Shading, LowE|
|Temperature||70-80 Degrees (Day) or 60-79 Degrees (Night)||Heating & Cooling|
|Humidity||50-60%||Gravel Bench & Humidifier|
|Water||Less Is More||Misting & Drip Systems|
|Propagation||By Division||Potting Bench|
|Air Movement||Necessary for Plant Health||Circulating Fans|
Depending on the type of orchid customers intend to grow, Solar Innovations® can incorporate a misting or drip system into the orchid greenhouse to provide ease of care for these delicate plants. Orchid greenhouses can be controlled manually or by an automated control system.
It is also important to consider light transmittance when designing an orchid room. Orchid greenhouse shading options can also improve environmental control and can be customized to meet needs specific to each growing environment. Our shading options include synthetic fabrics which can be removed from their placement and cleaned. In addition, these shades can be controlled manually or fully programmed by an automated controller.
Circulating fans are essential greenhouse accessories. When the air becomes stagnant pests can spread quickly. The circulating fans help keep the air moving which cools the temperature of the plants and can help to reduce plant burns. Another benefit to fans in the orchid greenhouse is an even temperature in the greenhouse. Solar Innovations, Inc.’s experienced horticulture design team partners with our customers to design the entire growing environment, rather than only providing structure design assistance as many of our competitors do.
