    here is the little GH, nothing special. just one of the 40 dollar growrack GH.

    one of the mini bogs consisting of rescued plants from Lowes.
    Sarracenia, Drosera, and Dionaea. the soil looks dry, but thats only on top because i had just moved them inside the little GH. they were out in full sun all day before hand.

    here is the second mini bog, consisting of the same things.

    here are a couple more pics of the same bogs. hopefully a little more clear. (more of a view of the sides of them, had no view point, just kinda stuck my hand in there xD)



    hopefully it wont look so crowded once all of the etiolation clears up

    would be great indoors for lowland nepenthes or something but purps are like the most cold tolerant sarracenia.
    sarracenia and flytraps are pretty cold tolerant they can take like 20F during dormancy.
    After they adjust and grow some new leaves I would acclimate them out of that thing.

    Be careful that it doesn't over heat. I have that same rack, I have never felt comfortable using the plastic covering outside.

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    I would not use the covering outside either due to overheating.
    And as JMurphy97 said, why use a greenhouse outside for Sarrs and VFT's?
    The Drosera adelae will not like outside, in my experience. They do not like direct sunlight and high temperatures. They also do not require a dormancy as the Sarrs and VFT's will need.
    I find that Drosera adelae grows best inside in a medium to bright location.

    eek..small greenhouse in full sun outdoors = oven = cooked plants.

    why do you need the greenhouse at all?
    the plants would be much better off without it..

    thats the thing, its been so cold here i didnt want anything to die. im aware of the overheating issue
    this is why my hydro/thermometer is in there at the moment.
    the high temperature in there today was 82F
    so im going to keep an eye on it. plus, we have a squirrel issue D:
