    Thank you so much for the comments everyone . My greenhouse is at my parents' house (no room to build one at my house), so I will definitely get some more photos tomorrow when I go there. To answer a few questions, Mike Ludwig is doing great, but he recently moved into a condo and no longer has the room for a greenhouse. He may get back into growing a few plants, but I can tell he's definitely relieved of the responsibility of caring for SOO many plants (he had a ton, sadly some of them we had to toss because there were just too many - a greenhouse stuffed and his patio stuffed). I bought the greenhouse from Harbor Freight, it is their 10x12 foot version. I put it together by myself, which to say the least, was a HUGE headache. The directions are seriously lacking so I found the following website EXTREMELY helpful. I also did all the reinforcements suggested, as it makes the greenhouse MUCH more durable. It is definitely warm in San Diego, so I have a very large swamp cooler blasting cold air into the greenhouse during the day. I believe the swamp cooler is designed for 1250 Square feet and I calculated over 1000 cubic feet for the greenhouse so I accidentally bought a ridiculously huge swamp cooler not realizing it was Square, not cubic feet (only ~120 square feet). It turns out however, that this is just about the right size for this greenhouse in San Diego. I made a custom sprinkler system out of PVC and sprinkler heads that covers almost all of the plants. I still have to make some tweaks though to get the last few plants. I had an electrician install an outdoor socket inside the greenhouse yesterday so now I have a close-by socket as well (it's not the prettiest job, but it works). The greenhouse was 650$ for me to pick up at my local harbor freight warehouse, but it costs much more online plus shipping. I definitely spent triple that though on modifications and reinforcements. Anyway, I will try to get those pics up for sure tomorrow. Thank you so much for your interest everyone . It's definitely nice to see .

    Here are some more pics as promised. I will edit this post later to add some more info if anyone is interested. Unfortunately time is always an issue for me.

    The Sib x Hamata picture I promised: apparently there is some discussion as to whether or not it is really the cross labeled. Mine is still fairly small.
