yes, plants need oxygen all night long this is when they make sugar.
In the long run it is better to stop air movement from outside in. that is
heat loss than conduction thru plastic or glass. The other problem with burning
electric is the product of combustion is CO2 AND H2O, there can be a humidity
up that leads to mold. running both propane heater AND dehumidifier is more
than electric. Ingrid

Thank you Ingrid!
Even though it was an old posting. I knew the answer to my own question.
What I found was, some posters felt the oxygen factor was insignificant
in the propane heating question.

Depending on your needs, I think you will be hard pressed to heat
only with solar or steaming compost.
Solar requires thermal mass and added insulation.
I've got a string of nights here in the 20's, so I'll see. I've been
adding both thermal mass and insulation. I do have a heat lamp on a
timer... It's my first winter with the "solar cabana", so much remains
to be done.
With that said day time temps have been a delight inside with outside
temps in the the 30's.
No objection to any form of heating, but insulation is often overlooked.
