that is a good quesiton, but it would help if we knew where you were, and what you are growing in there.

that said, generally, 50-70 at night and 65-85 during the day.

I am in zone 7a. I have just about everything started that I am going to plant.

Tomatoes, onion, beets, radish, peas, beans, squash, cantaloupe, cucumber, lettuce, peppers, okra, I think that is it.

I haven't got my seed potatoes yet...but I need to.

if you are in 7a, just make sure the house doesn't get above 85 day and below 50 night and you should be in good shape. if you can put a fan in the green house to start "hardening off" your plants, that would be better for them.

My little greenhouse, runs about 20* warmer than the outside during the day. I have a little heater that keeps it above 40* at night, and I open the window a bit in the daytime.

It is very little. about 4X6 but has plenty of shelving on 3 sides. I have 175 plants started and have only used about a half of the space. This is my first year for this. I usually buy my plants. I wanted to give it a whirl from seed this year. Right now I am in the process of collecting gallon sized containers. I am too cheap to go out and buy them.

Soft Plastic *with zipper opening* or a Polycarbonate *with slide door opeening* type style????

Each type of greenhouse has a different style of heating up and or keeping heat...

Although unreleased heat in either of them
can be the same effect!!!! mad shk lala

Once we get the full sun, that is the thing you have to watch in the tiny plants... It can burn them very easily .........

Indoors I have to draw the blinds when I leave on a sunny day......SO they dont burn....

The sun gets really hot in March and all summer.
