Just curious, what was the outside ambient temperature when the GH was at 107?

Today was 90º, I think and partly cloudy. I have a box fan about 5 feet off the floor in there 24/7 and all the windows wide open. I have a begonia and pothos that live in there and are suffering.

Cheryl that's not too bad with only a 17 degree difference from outside to inside. However I do realize that the 90 is tough on the plants and every degree of increase puts even more stress on them. Thanks for the info Thank You!

And in the shade, mind you....on a partly cloudy day.
Since we went directly from all. that. rain. to hellion heat, I hadn't gotten to clean off the outside of the greenhouse. I am thinking that layer of dirt is insulating it? Rolling on the floor laughing
