    I'm sure there is a something-cide to take care of it, but if the plants weren't all that important to me, then i would do something else. First, you take a gas can, a lighter, and a bike pump. You assemble them together, and voila, instant flamethrower.

    But seriously, i don't know what you should use. Maybe the submersion method would work.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.
