Will my greenhouse work?
    #4567971 - 08/22/05 10:02 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I bought this greenhouse from Big Lot's for $20 the other day. I haven't bought a cool mist or ultrasonic humidifier yet so I can't test what the humidity is going to be. Anyway, here's the situation. The plastic covering that goes over the greenhouse covers everywhere except the very bottom of the greenhouse. Will this greenhouse succeed in keeping moisture and humidity levels up or will most of it escape through the bottom? I don't necessarily like the idea of having a wide open space on the bottom of my fruiting chamber for dust and anything else to just float on in, either.

Has anyone had a greenhouse without a bottom piece of plastic to fully seal the greenhouse up? I might just disassemble the thing and go to K-Mart and set up a Martha or I suppose I could get some kind of plastic tarp and try to wrap it around the bottom and seal it somehow.

Am I just setting myself up for failure if I try to fruit a casing in a greenhouse that has no bottom plastic covering? Thanks for any help or suggestions!  :cool:

most of them come that way, buy more plastic and tape it to the bottom to enclose it

the moisture will definately get out and lower your rh.. if you decide to keep it, just get a plastic tarp that's a lil bigger than the bottom to drop on the ground and seal it with some duct tape or sumthin... that'll prolly keep the humidity in...

how big is the ghouse btw?

Thanks for the info guys. Do you think Home Depot or Lowe's would have some plastic tarp material that I could use? The greenhouse is 20 inches long, 27 inches wide, and about four feet high at the very top arch. It came with three shelves and was very easy to put together. It fits great in my spare closet.

nice size gh for the money and you got shelves w/ it?! why would you wanna go get a martha for almost double that and have to buy shelves too? lowes or home depot will have tarps, drop plastic, and plastic sheeting w/ different thicknesses. i think a good tarp woul work just fine
