    I was wondering if anyone has any idea on how to make a lil green house. where I can put my seeds and there containers in. So I can get the Temp up better so they can sprout faster and stronger?

    This is not very creative, but it's worked well for me...I use the little Jiffy one with peat pellets. You can get a small one for about $5 and it works really well.

    I use the Jiffy ones as well. I also use the small peat pots and then cover with a clear soda bottle. I cut the bottom of the sode bottle and place the bottle over the little pot. When you are ready to vent just take the screw off cap off. I bought a plastic tray with with handles from target and place several of these on the tray.
    I've heard if people using egg cartons but I don't care for eggs.

    I made a 200 gal glass box from wood, acrylic glass, cerimic heating bulb and a therm controller. It is spacious and works much better than Jeffy ones.
