  • Greenhouse Temperature Management

    MSU Extension’s floriculture educational and applied research programs help improve greenhouse crop production and business management by providing trusted information on new production techniques and management strategies.


  • Managing crop height

    Published on February 3, 2021

    Professor Emeritus Royal Heins discusses the history of DIF, which is the temperature difference between the day and night, and how it can be used to manage plant height of floriculture crops produced in greenhouses. He also discusses graphical tracking of the height of potted flowering plants to help growers achieve their desired height targets.

  • High tunnel and outdoor production of cold-tolerant bedding plants

    Published on November 10, 2016
    As greenhouse space becomes limited in the spring, you may consider using outdoor spaces and high tunnels. Read on for insight into the benefits and risks associated with these growing strategies.

  • Bench-Top Root Zone Heating: Can You Reduce Air Temperatures and Finish Bedding Plants On Time?

    Published on November 17, 2014
    In the second article of a two-part series focusing on energy-efficient production strategies for annual bedding plants, Purdue University researchers present updated findings on the use of bench-top, root zone heating systems.

  • Using root-zone heating for energy-efficient petunia production

    Published on July 17, 2016
    A new study shows that you can grow your petunias in a cooler greenhouse to save money and still produce a high-quality crop.

  • High Tunnels: Reduce Heating Costs While Improving Bedding Plant Quality

    Published on November 17, 2014
    This is the first article in a two-part series featuring research from Purdue University that focuses on energy-efficient production of cold-tolerant bedding plants.

  • Crops with relatively low optimum temperatures

    Published on May 17, 2015
    At temperatures above the optimum, plants experience stress and the rate of development begins to decrease. Learn which crops grow best at relatively cool temperatures.

  • Cold-intermediate bedding plants

    Published on February 22, 2014
    Bedding plants that stop developing at moderately low temperatures can be labeled as cold-intermediate plants. This categorization is based on estimates of base temperatures derived from research data primarily generated at Michigan State University.

  • Measuring greenhouse temperature

    Published on March 17, 2011
    The single largest advantage of using greenhouses to grow ornamental and food crops is the ability to provide desirable temperatures for plant growth and development.

  • Temperature integration

    Published on February 5, 2018
    Plants integrate and respond to temperature over an extended period, and not just the day or night temperature.

  • Grow warm or grow cool?

    Published on July 17, 2009
    Using the Virtual Grower computer software is one way to determine how to get the best results at certain greenhouse growing temperatures.

  • Are you recognizing your heating costs?

    Published on November 17, 2011
    Crop heating costs increase as production time increases, the size of the container increases, and the earlier in the spring that plants are finished.

  • Cold-tolerant bedding plants

    Published on January 22, 2014
    Bedding plants that stop developing at low temperatures can be labeled as cold-tolerant plants. This categorization is based on estimates of base temperatures derived from research data primarily generated at Michigan State University.

  • Energy-efficient annuals 12: Pentas & verbena

    Published on February 22, 2010
    Researchers from Michigan State University present research-based information for scheduling pentas and verbena in an energy-efficient and predictive manner. Part 12 of a 12-part series.

  • Energy-efficient annuals 6: Petunias

    Published on August 22, 2009
    Researchers from Michigan State University present research-based information for scheduling petunia in an energy-efficient and predictive manner. Part 6 of a 12-part series.

  • Maximizing photosynthesis, minimizing respiration

    Published on March 8, 2021
    Conceptually, anything growers can do to increase photosynthesis and decrease respiration can increase growth, leading to thicker stems, faster rooting, more branches, and more and larger flowers and fruits

  • Wave petunia smart scheduling

    Published on March 22, 2013
    We quantified the effects of temperature and photosynthetic daily light integral on flowering time and characteristics of 15 Wave petunia cultivars, then generated temperature-based flowering time models for more predictable greenhouse scheduling.
