    i have found that a " top flap"/window, will mostly take care of excessive heat and is alo closeable for nite time cold. humidity i try to control with a good ole anti humidity machine ( electric) or let it also escape through the top air escape. or a combo of both . a good temp and humid /meter will be of great help, what feel "humid" to you may not be so to your plants .:)

    When my Dad was gardening some years ago he always had his greenhouse full of seedlings and later veggies sky hi, he had windows and a door and a light source and he according to the weather would open and close the windows and the door on really hot days and at night when it was cool he would turn his light on, which was just enough to keep the greenhouse warm. It was a lot of work checking and watering etc. but we sure enjoyed his efforts, hope this helps a little, Blessings.

    Ok , I’ve heard to keep an open bucket of water in the greenhouse, or my way is a steaming tea kettle or humidifier,lol, takes a lot of electric and changing water. I’d go with the open bucket but put in bleach so mosquitoes don’t lay eggs, good luck, cheers!
