    Beautiful...I've been wanting to build a green house, but I don't have to much money, and not verymuch experience with carnivorous plants, plus I'll be going off to college in a few years, so I guess I'll wait a few years [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Although my mom wants me to build her one so she can grow flowers and stuff, so I'll end up building one eventually anyways.

    By the way, what's the stuff called u used for the walls (the see thru stuff)
    thanx-warped

    That is greenhouse glazing material called polycarbonate or known as corrugated plastic in hardware stores sometimes. Not cheap but good for strength.

    yup, thanks nepg. If you want some information on it... the web site is http://www.tuftexpanel.com. and I contacted them for some specific info that I will give here for any of you that might be interested in it.
    Here is the light transmission for each of our panels.

    Smoke 84% light transmission
    Clear 93% light transmission
    White 78% light transmission

    The material is uv protected to keep the panels from deteriorating but does not block out the UV rays needed for the plants.

    For your information the smoke panels are darker therefore it becomes quite warm directly underneath them.

    What would be something that's cheap for the sides of the green house. (on a limited budget. )

    uhm maybe just green house plastic then? You know the kind that comes on a roll... I don't know how long it lasts though or how much effort goes into installing it.
