When growing in the winter, your plants are likely to have different needs than they would have during the summer. Drastically reduce the amount of water you provide; in most cases the first inch or so of soil should be dry before you water again. Also, because growth slows during the winter most plants will require only minimal fertilizer. Most plants will be just fine without it provided that you have some good organic content in your soil.

Even though temperatures are cooler in the winter, plants still need some ventilation in order to stay healthy. The greenhouse will need some gas exchange so that the plants have fresh carbon dioxide and can properly photosynthesize. Some gentle air flow also keeps pests away and will encourage sturdier stem growth.
