    Depends greatly on where you live .. ie what kind of heating and or cooling you would need based on what plants and temperature range your trying to run.

    A simple steel hoop ghouse is not that expensive and can often be found cheap used. NepG would be able to give you an idea on what he's spent already just on the very basic system he has so far.

    Very ball park figure for a small very basic bare minimum setup.. couple thousand dollars most likely more...

    ooo! I can be useful here. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    My gh simply consists of roughcut wood,plywood,double poly layering,a heater a fan and gravel and lots of other nessesitys.
    Roughly so far it has cost my fmaily and I about $800.00 so far. That's pretty good compared to a couple thousand dollars! And luckily a friend of ours into greenhouses gave us the fan,and the hoops for the gh. Poly isn't cheap ($150.00) for a 100ft by 50ft roll. And so far we've made out pretty darn good! Just have to wait for winter to start throwing out the cold weather to see if I can keep it going! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Hope I have helped out.

    Question

    It just depends on your taste. From luxury to just a simple miniature greenhouse or a terranium, which are two different things. check out this two web pages. http://www.gardenfantasy.com/cat/Pro...reenhouses.htm
    or if you want better a terranium. I just founf this:http://www.terrariums.org/terrariums/carnivorous.html and this last one is a good one, $295, believe me thats a nice price. All what you need
    hope it helps
    Two things I Know for fact: I hate people who waste money trying to understand who they are, just check what you own and that is who you are. And, you know that you love when you ask God for more seconds in your life to love.

    Here is a place I was looking at: http://www.charliesgreenhouse.com/

    If I actually get around to building a greenhouse, I will probably end up doing a 2x4 constructed frame with either glass or twin wall. There are many good plans for greenhouses in books at the library.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Charley's greenhouse is a pot of *&^%. They are outlandish in thier prices and the only thing reasonable worth buying are potting supplies! Twinwall IMHO is a waste of money, and espically if you want to grow nepentehs in a gh poly is superior as it diffuses the light very well. I say go for a large growchamber better yet. In your basement or something like a walk in chamber.

    I actualy like what they offer here, http://www.gardenfantasy.com/cat/Pro...eenhouses.htm, as mfaris sugdested. It seems pretty affordable, not too large, and not too small. Would this be right for nepenthes, and maybe some other cps? And, thought I should mention my dad lives in San Diego, CA on the immediate coast( cool and humid). Apreciate the help.
