I am building a custom greenhouse on my 3rd floor apartment balconey. I need to know if the greenhouse needs to have ventilation. Like space on the bottom of the greenhouse and toward the top. In Alaska, let me remind you.

Thank you.

Yes, your greenhouse does need a ventilation method. On sunny days, it will heat up just as a parked car heats up. You might want to look into the automatic vent openers, especially if you are not always home during the day.
