Default Re: Poor man's greenhouse

any old plastic pot with clingfilm over the top or perferabley just in a plastic bag tied off to keep humidity. If your looking for (success and new as I am) try Ensete Ventricosum. They take about 2-4 weeks to germinate, and quick growers with relative ease. Stick them in a small pot (compost & perlite), water through then place in a clear plastic bag and stick them in your airing cupbaord. My airing cupboard generally has lows of 21 degrees and highs of 28, plus ensete seem to do fine germinating in light or no light and static temperatures .....

I have cracked germinating palms and a few types of banana, now I'm trying to keep thenm alive !!!!!!
