DIY green house
Interesting idea for starting plants - kind of like mini greenhouses
Inexpensive Mini Greenhouses - Plastic containers to grow food should have recycling numbers 1, 2, 4 and 5 on the bottom. Plastic containers with a 3 have PVC in them. In time chemicals leach out contaminating soil. Styrofoam is made of plastic number 6 and have cancerous effects, Number 7 contains bisphenol A which is harmful to the behavioral growth of children.
Inexpensive Mini Greenhouses - VERY good idea! Use larger containers with drain holes.
