Default Small outdoor greenhouse for container plants

Hi all

I just wanted to share info about a small pop-up greenhouse 4'x4' that I bought this year. I am keeping some container bananas inside it. Hopefully, they will grow faster than just being outside. The structure is very light but if secured properly, it can withstand the high spring wind gusts. I recommend checking the anchoring stakes every few days just in case they start to pop out.

The greenhouse plastic gets very wet inside on most days and you will have to open the zipper to vent the inside on days that are very warm and sunny. I tried measuring greenhouse temperature with a thermometer but it gets saturated with moisture and stops working correctly. (I haven't gotten around to making a water proof case for it yet). So, I was hoping that this greenhouse would retain a small amount of heat overnight but that just doesn't happen. (Too optimistic, I guess). I still need to remove plants if over night temps are falling into the low 30s even for a few hours.

I have been keeping my small tomatoes and other garden plants inside as well and so far so good! It's a fairly 'cheap thrill' but if I see enough benefit, I would consider making a more sturdy structure with polycarb plastic.

Happy growing!

Erik G
