    Your best bet is to construct one from 2x2's and poly. There was a post sometime back on how to construct such a structure.

    I have a greenhouse 3'x4'x2' length x width x height from Big lots(used to be Pic N' Save). It cost $19.99 when it was on sale.

    Wal*Marts and JoAnn Fabric stores have a 3 x 3 x 3 greenhouse for 19.99 or 29,99 I forget wghat I paid and they also have one thats 3w x 3l & 6h and it's like $69.99 These aren't the best for exclusive indoor growing and are about as good of quality as a 2x2 & poly plastic DIY job. If you're gonna use it outseside for spring/summer and fall then they can't be beat for ease of construction (no tools nedded everything snaps together and zippers shut) but I don't like them for indoor growing chambers because they don't hold enough humidity for my liking.

    However, If you make a frame of 2 x 2 wood and instead of poly sheeting you put waterproof fiberglass tub wall surround (you buy it in 4 ft x 8 ft sheets) on the frame and then caulk it on all seams you will retain much more moisture and heat or cold (depending upon what you wanna grow). It's 100% more sturdy and useful plus the glossy white of the wall surround reflects the light back at the plants and they seem to dig the extra light.

    Good luck!

    you can see the mini greenhouse go to the Nepenthes topic and got to N. Ventrata and he has a mini 2tier greenhouse and both of his big N. Ventrata are standing in there with a unknown Nep.
