    Sounds like the setting is wrong - you need to make sure it's burning with a blue rather than yellow flame and ensure that the wick is trimmed every day. 

    Also you need ventilatiion to the greenhouse if you're using a paraffin heater or you'll be in danger of carbon monoxide poisoning when you enter.
