Keep plants toasty for winter growing with a convenient indoor/outdoor space heater. The BioGreen Palma Heater is an energy-efficient, adjustable portable heater that can produce 5,120 BTUs, which is enough to heat 150-200 square feet depending on ceiling height. It has a IPX4-rated housing for damp areas and an updated Thermo 2 thermostat that allows you to use the heater for ventilation during the summer, circulating air at an impressive 163 cubic meters (5,756 cubic feet) per hour. The 6.2-foot power cord and five-foot temperature sensor cable help you get the placement exactly right.
Palma greenhouse heaters are the best space heaters for small and midsize DIY greenhouses, and many customers use them for garages, workhouses, enclosed patios, cellars and even studio apartments to generate some extra heat. They're available with a standard manual thermostat or a digital summer/winter thermostat.

I’ve been using my heater for several weeks now to keep my 10x12 greenhouse warm and I’m quite pleased with its performance! I have to say it’s one of the best purchases I’ve made all year
Still early as far as cold middle Midwest weather goes, but so far there's been no problem keeping my 8'x8' Workpro polyethylene greenhouse at the desired temperature. Coldest thus far is low 20s and never dipped below 48 degrees inside. Temperature data is being logged with a Govee Hygrometer. The real test will come if we get an extended period (2-3 weeks) below freezing, but based on what I've seen the first month of operation, my Palma will handle it without an issue. I did add a DeWitt N-Sulate frost blanket to the ceiling and walls for some added protection. Watching my energy bill, operation cost is negligible. I'm quite pleased at this point.
The first one I received kept overheating and overloading.
After contacting the manufacturer they quickly sent out another heater and it works as it should.
I am running this heater with a 50’ extension cord plugged into a GFI and it is running as it should
The thermostat works as it should and overall to keep my 8x8 shed in the 40 degree range for my bonsai it is working well
Time will tell how well it performs in really cold weather, I don’t know if it will overheat and overload if running non stop in February with -20 degree weather
Right now I am pleased for the money
It is unlike a traditional space heater as it really doesn’t get very hot
It gradually warms up and does the job but it never really gets hot
I am sure it is designed this way to prevent burning or overheating the plants
The heater and thermostat are great. I am having to insulate my greenhouse/shed cause it doesn’t retain the heat. But expecting it to come together.
Great heater for my 10x12 greenhouse. It gives off gentle even heat! Very reliable.
I love this Palma Heater for my smallish greenhouse. I purchased it to replace a very unreliable propane heater setup that failed several times in the middle of the night. I like this Palma so much that I purhased a second as back up. No back up needed yet. As far as cost comparison between propane and electric, I'm not sure there is much difference anymore since propane prices have skyrocketed. I'm a happy customer.
This heater/thermostat combo really helps maintain temps in my Palram 6x8’ hobby greenhouse.
I have had the product for a week. It maintained at temp of at least 41.3 degrees Fahrenheit while temps outside were at 22. I have a 10X12" greenhouse that has 12 foot tall at peak with circulating fans to keep heat temps evenly dispearsed. The walls of the greenhouse are 8 mil double walled polycarbonate. I suspect when we get done replacing the walls that are only 4 mil with the new 8 mil the temperature will be higher. So far working well. I do have it under constant data tracking with a Hygrometer that logs 27/7. Being this is a new purchase, I can not rate it any higher until it has been working for a season. I will come back and rate again a year now now.
I purchased two of these heaters as replacements for heaters that I have used for the past two years. The Palma Heater is well made with quality materials. the heat and fan output is excellent for 110v. I recommend the product.
