A greenhouse is a specially designed structure primarily used for cultivating and nurturing plants, especially in controlled environments. It is typically made of transparent materials, such as glass or plastic, which allow sunlight to enter and create a warm and sheltered environment inside. The primary purpose of it is to provide an ideal microclimate for plants, promoting their growth and protecting them from adverse weather conditions.

The transparent walls and roof of the greenhouse trap solar radiation, creating a greenhouse effect that keeps the interior warmer than the surrounding outdoor temperature.

Greenhouses are used in various ways, such as:

Extending the growing season. Starting seeds and propagating plants. Protecting plants from pests and diseases. Growing tender or exotic plants.

Some greenhouses are used for hydroponic or controlled environment agriculture, where plants are grown without soil or in a precisely controlled environment with artificial lighting, temperature, and nutrients. They come in various sizes and designs, from small backyard structures to large commercial operations.

Modern greenhouses often incorporate advanced technologies like automated climate control, irrigation systems, and shading to optimize plant growth and minimize resource consumption. Overall, greenhouses play a vital role in modern agriculture, horticulture, and plant research, enabling the cultivation of a wide variety of crops year-round and in diverse geographical locations.
