Why do greenhouses need ventilation?

Ventilation is the main component of a healthy greenhouse garden.

Without it, your plants and greenhouse will be exposed to a multitude of problems.

Greenhouse ventilation helps prevent fungal infection and provides plants with the necessary fresh air they need to photosynthesize, respirate, and grow strong. Ventilations also aid in regulating humidity and temperature levels. Plants breathe. The leaves inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide through the process of respiration. During the day, photosynthesis causes plants to absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. There is no better safeguard against depletion of carbon dioxide and oxygen than proper ventilation during both summer and winter. Fungal infection is a major challenge for greenhouse owners. Some plants are more prone to them than others, even though all plants can get mildew or fungal infections. They spread through spores in the air. These pores are often concentrated in tiny quantities. They proliferate quickly if given the optimal growing conditions of warm, wet, protected spaces such as greenhouses. Adequate ventilation prevents fungal infections before they begin, ensuring that your greenhouse’s growing spaces withstand the test of time. Ventilation also aids humidity and temperature regulation. Even though humidity helps to stabilize temperature and promote soil health, too much moisture in extremely warm spaces can contribute to disease in your garden. Adequate ventilation and moving air is the best way to stabilize the levels of humidity and support plant health. Ventilation also aids air movement and circulation inside your greenhouse. One of the most effective ways of enhancing the resilience and strength of your plants is moving air. When air ruffles the leaves of your plants, your plants are forced to develop a sturdy structure, reinforcing them against weakness and disease.
