Current project
Thread Started on 6 Dec, 2007, 2:51 Hello,

I have been doing various projects since I started growing CPs (strangely enough on the first of January, very easy to count the years) some projects have been big, others, small. I am planning a big project in which I am going to make a lowland indoor greenhouse for neps. I am going to buy an outdoor plastic zip up greenhouse with shelves, maybe a heater, a fan, maybe a humidifier, a light and an irrigation system, then put them all together. How does it sound? If you would like to make a suggestion, please don't hesitate to tell me about it.

Reply #1 on 6 Dec, 2007, 12:53 Don't you live in England? That thing is going to lose heat so friggin fast since its just one real thin layer of vinyl. Either save up and get a real GH, or build one out of PVC and double wall it w/ plastic so theres an air pocket. Doing that will save you approx half in heating costs, and building your own GH out of pvc/plastic is about as dirt cheap as you can get. Link to Post - Back to Top LoggedNatura non facit saltum

Reply #3 on 8 Dec, 2007, 6:44 You mean like you'd use to wrap up leftovers? Thats going to be way too thin. Get the plastic sheeting people use as a dropcloth for painting. You can find it at hardware stores. Link to Post - Back to Top LoggedNatura non facit saltum

Reply #4 on 9 Dec, 2007, 19:58 Isn't that going to be opaque? I don't know of this dropcloth being transparent, but I am sure there must be some sort of thick plastic sheeting in the garden centres. Link to Post - Back to Top Logged
