    Default Cheapo mini greenhouse for the winter.

    Their home for the next couple of months. The guest bath was free given current concerns, and all my windows are shaded by trees, roof overhangs, etc. Humidity and light were a concern, because 1 was in spike, but all turned out well. Greenhouse was 15 bucks at a local farm and ranch store, already had the light, timer, fan.

    How do you build a small greenhouse for winter?

    This was a kit available at a local farm and ranch store for Black Friday. It was 15 dollars then, normally around 30. Not suitable for outside thru the winter, but well suited to help keep humidity up as they resided inside for a couple months.

    Shelves, each with its own lights.

    It came with wire shelves, (I think 3) but I didn't install them as I only had 2 plants on hangers. Installed one at the top for a place to mount a light and fan, and to hang them from.
