Heated greenhouses, hot springs and surface geysers

An orange tree has died in a greenhouse of another player. And here my thoughts, what if you could also heat a greenhouse? Like a blast furnace, you should be able to build a structure under the greenhouse. Like the Romans, with their heated thermal baths... so you have more than a bonus of 5°C, maybe 10°C or 15°C.

Furthermore, what if we would see natural heat sources in the game, underground hot springs and surface geysers. Gyesires are very rare but could create a warm oasis within 20-30 blocks, even in the dead of winter. But be carfully, a very hot geyser or a hot spring can kill or hurt you.

England had greenhouses heated by the warmth from decomposing compost to grow all of the wonderful tropical plants that explorer botanists were bringing back from the tropics.

Palm trees thriving in a frozen winter!

 

So yes, compost has been used as a heat source for greenhouses for a long time - and we have compost and greenhouses in VS.

 

I have NOT tried simply having a fire going. Has anyone actually done this? Maybe in Creative Mode? Does it have a bearing? Or is it only the outside temperature +5 degrees that matters?

Anyway, a fire is simply too expensive to maintain as a heat source in this game.

 

Big picture, I would like to see more heating options for greenhouses. If we have the technology to build a glass house, we have the technology to heat it.
