Thanks guys :D Lmk how this works for you if you try it out!There are some modifications I have seen to add more shelves and better routing of the water vapor to each shelf when the greenhouse is filled. If I add any of these extras, I'll post pics and the methods I used if I do things differently.

I was at benny's the other day and I saw a 4 tier greenhouse except it was double the width of this. I would say it would hold 2x the amount of trays. I was thinking about using that, but the seems at the zippers didn't look to good.

It would probably work, the zippers and seams don't get too much use or wear unless you put something on the shelves that stretches out the cover and strains the seams. I got mine from Amazon for about $40 and it has held up really well to my abuse, they only thing I would do different is spray the frame down with rustoleum bc it's started to rust a little in spots from the humidity.If it's less than $80, I would say go for it, otherwise you can buy 2 from Amazon for the same price.

absolutley, if you have the correct set up for a GH. There are also less costly and time consuming teks to achieve the same outcome, for simplicity's sake, like monotubs.However, I built a giant GH (out of a ferret masion cage), for species that require more maintenance than Cubensis (that wont make it in a monotub/dub tub) and I absolutley fell in love with it.Although for cubes, my favorite is still the good old monotub. No checking water levels, scrubbing etc.

I totally agree! I just started a monotub for ease of use... but I do have a GH because I thought they were cool, before I knew anything about cultivation. Lol. Now i dont have to waste all the money I spent on it . Still gonna rock the mono, they rock! :D

I have been looking into setting up a greenhouse. How often do you need to change the perlite with this setup?

The perlite would soak up excess humidity to leave room for error, right?

Verm in a jar is to soak up extra Moisture...the Perlite is used to create humidity within your green House or tote...you want your perlite to stay moist/wet so when the temps change(Cold air meets Hot Air) it creates evaporation...hense creating your humidity within your Green House/Tote

      Is this a start?

      A tek is science, people before you have had great success with them. They show your the way to success with put mush failures. when you have the know how , you can try more... with more success.

      I'm sorry about that accidental quote, this website is still confusing. These are both separate teks people have sent me. And I said ports in the paragraph which was my slang for portabelas. Is there any chance they will grow? I just want to see a little bit of miselium to get me excited
    • El_Piraña
      Yes, better than coffee in dixie cups....but why not just follow one of the teks on ology? It seems you are pretty motivated to get going, but you are more likely to have success the first time around if you follow the tek exactly.  And if you let us know what type of spores you're working with it will be easier to give you some guidance in the right direction.  We want you to be successful too!

      I did some research on begginer teks last night. I have one jar (on the left) with a mixture of brown rice, sawdust, and 1 cup of water. And on the right is cleaned birdseed with water. Bought a cheap PC at goodwill and used that on both to steam them out. Soaked store bought ports overnight and sucked some of the liquid into a sterile syringe and put it in both. I am expecting a contam in both, but I hope to be able to get some miselium growing and be able to transport... is that better than my coffee in a dixie cup scheme?
