Greenhouse Watering

As you know this is my first time with a greenhouse. Plants are doing well, at one point on Saturday the thermometer showed 83 degrees in the greenhouse.

My question is this: Do plants in a greenhouse require much less watering? The gauges on the thermometer show high humidity all the time, but I keep checking my plants and have concluded that either they do not need as much watering, or someone is taking care of my plants when I am not there.

Plants in a high humidity environment don't transpire water as rapidly as plants in a low humidity environment. Therefore, you won't need to water them as frequently. :)

they simply need water when they need water, when its hot they need it more often.
