In an attempt to keep things as warm as possible overnight, I've laid some sheets of bubblewrap over a frame 1m above the whole plant, with a diesel air heater blowing in hot air underneath through some ducting pipes. I might need another heater on the other side, we'll see how it goes, but last night the temp didn't go below 17C, which is much better than the single figures we've seen recently. It takes a while putting the sheeting on in the evening and removing it every morning, but getting the temps right for both day and night are super important if the plant is to metabolise efficiently.
