Dryer vent re-routed to greenhouse

Upon the advice of one of my commentors (thank you again!) I ran my nearby clothes dryer vent down into the greenhouse.  Currently the outside world is 37 degrees but the running clothes dryer is keeping my greenhouse air about 30 degrees warmer.  It’s also so humid in there that it’s literally raining.  The floor has a drain, so no worries!
