green tree frogs in my green house?
 
I have 3 green tree frogs and wanted to know how you think they would do if i let them free in my greenhouse? It is a 12x12 green house the lowest I have had the temp go was 50ish in winter and the hottest was 97(windows and door open) the humidity is always 55+ more often in the 80% range. Lots of plants and wet areas for them too hide and plenty too eat.

Are they native to your area? If not, I wouldn't do it.

Actually this doesn't excuse further releases of the frog... particularly since you could be transporting pathogens parasites and diseases to unexposed regions. If you can't contain them (which is evident through the statement about open doors and windows), you should absolutely not put them in the greenhouse.
It is also illegal to set them up in a situation where they could escape since they are not from the region (see the standards prohibiting release of animals exposed to exotic diseases or parasites (which frogs from outside of NJ are automatically considered to have been exposured to particularly since they were kept as pets...). See http://www.nj.gov/dep/fgw/pdf/relocation_policy.pdf
