1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    I have an 8 foot x 10 ft greenhouse with double polycarbonate walls and roof on top of 3 foot insulated walls. has 1 foot x 1 foot vent at the peak on each end. During cold weather Should I close these off? Right now there's a lot of condensation but it doesn't feel that humid inside.

    Hi Glen,
    Would the vents being left open be letting your heat escape?

    Yes, and I think I answered my question. My concern was it getting to humid when the vents were closed. But as memory serves the cooler air doesn't hold as much water so it shouldn't be an issue until it gets a lot warmer in the greenhouse then I can open up the vents.
