The greenhouse of Micandy Gardens is filled with flowering plants at the moment. It’s a very busy period and – as they say on their Twitter page – sleep is pushed to the back burner. Even though the staff of the greenhouse has more than enough to do at the moment, they took some time to take the following video, to show the colorful greenhouse.
Micandy Garden Greenhouses is a family owned, horticulture greenhouse business that is situated in Hudsonville (MI), USA. For 50 years now, the company produces plants and flowers for other greenhouses, retail chains, garden centers and landscapers.
This winter and spring we have experimented with 10,000 square feet of LED lighting.
In this brief time, we have already seen significant results.
We have seen cuttings take root 3-5 days quicker than without lighting or with incandescent lighting. The energy savings of LED’s is significant as well. One 1 watt LED bulb can do what one 100 watt bulb does.
Here is our mysterious colored LED lighting at night. The blue and the red bulbs make for a purple colored greenhouse.
Our industry is caring for bees and pollinators along with doing some of the best research in the world on the subject. https://vimeo.com/122747444
