Answer :

Greenhouse is a transparent structure made of glass that aims at increasing the inner temperature of the structure. It helps to grow plants in cold weather by providing regulated conditions.

i. Light: a greenhouse is constructed in such a way that it traps maximum sunlight. The walls of it reflect a large amount of trapped light.


ii. Water: for regulating water requirements, capillary mats are used. These mats ensure that the plants receive adequate water supply. Also, excessive water is re-used.


iii. Carbon dioxide: for circulating air properly, fans are placed horizontally that ensures plants get enough CO2. Sometimes, compressed CO2 is used.
