You'd still need countless rubbermaids and such, a tent just isn't clean/sterile enough.

Nothing is steril,you sterilize it;it must stay as you left it.

I was considering the same thing. I think it will require some plastic sheeting to make it tight enough to hold a decent rh level. The fabric of most tents breathes a bit to well. I suspect the fabric will mold in a very short period of time. IMHO you'd do better to get a greenhouse. Big Lots has em for $15 you can also find em on ebay for about the same price.

Damn, I wish we had a Big Lots here. Just how big is this greenhouse?

I think the tent is a novel idea. Maybe you should check into a waterproof one. I have one, and I can tell you, there is water dripping down the walls every morning, after sleeping in it. That's just one person. It was also hotboxed and it was soooo stuffy in there, I had to get out for air!

Though, my 2nd cousin uses the tubs, as they are inconspicuous. What would your visitors think if you had a tent pitched(no pun little ones) in your domicile?

that's an interesting idea... you could setup a tent in a room and run a couple cool mists to it. put some shelving inside and you've got a walk-in terrarium.. hmm...

even waterproof will still have to much air escaping. any tent will not work without being sprayed with some type of sealent because any tent that has no circulation would be fatal for campers. they make a waterproof sealent for boots that baically seals a thin coating over the entirety of the shoe. If you had a tent that had no screens in it, this my be possible but temporary. Sealent would need to be re-applied every so ofter. It would probably be a better idea to set the ten frame up and build your own with some durable plastic sheeting.

Thanks for the tip, just got back from Big Lots 14.99 just as you stated. I'm going to give it a try.
