Q.Temperature Fluctuation in Indoor Plant Room

Anonymous added on October 27, 2011 | Answered

My husband is building an indoor ‘plant room’, basically a sunroom, and we want to put a fireplace in it. He is concerned about whether the temperature spikes (say, 40 to 80 degrees when we light up the fire) would damage the plants. Any thoughts?

It would really depend on what plants you were planning on putting in there. Most of the normal houseplants would do just fine, but if you were going to be having something more exotic, like orchids or some of the more fussy tropicals, it could cause problems.
