    The closest thing I have to a greenhouse is a growchamber I built out of pvc pipe, plastic crates, and clear vinyl. Not very asthetically pleasing(not that I care or anything....it's a wonder I didn't use duct tape on it heh heh), but it was relatively cheap and it works.

    Although my plants were banished from the main lab, because the DEP deemed them as being potential contaminants, I still have permission to use the old building. The DI water was a bonus. Back at home I have the front area for the lion's share of them and a screened in porch for transitioning seedlings and new arrivals to the front. Still trying to get that streamlet / raging river to be useful, for other than washing soil media.

    Duct tape is man's best friend - Along with crazy glue, WD 40 and, and coat hangers. You shoulda seen what I used to hold a toilet together...

    CaptainDosera, if you use plastic bags, won't that be quite a lot of plastic bags?

    Question: Which is more hazardous, a plastic crate greenhouse, or a toilet bowl when falling apart? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    My parents never spent a penny on any of my plants. All of it is bough using my own money, and my terrainium is just a big clear plastic storage box with wooden panels on the sides to hold up the lights and cheap plastic that is used to wrap various things in like beds or something. So the overall cost is very cheap, and since there is no plastic/glass between the lights and terrainium, the plants get better lighting off of less lights.

    I think most of us here who don't have greenhouses are envious of those who do. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    But the vast majority of us here DON'T have a greenhouse so you are not alone! We have to find ways of growing our plants as best we can. You try this and try that and find what works for you in your area. That's part of the fun of it. And yes, there will be heartbreaking plant losses from time to time. But not having a greenhouse doesn't mean you can't grow CPs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Greenhouses also require a lot of time, work and expense. So not all your time goes into playing with the pretty plants. Just like with owning a horse, its not all trail rides and gallops--its grooming, mucking stalls, hauling hay and feel, hoof picking, tack cleaning...etc. "Luxuries" bring work and responsibility too.

    So yeah...we all want a greenhouse. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] And maybe some day you will have one. Set your sights on working hard and saving money for your own home and greenhouse on down the road. Its not impossible. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    U. quelchii is extremely hard to come by, let alone extremely rare. I've only seen it on very few growlists.
