Now you can grow any plant on earth with this large indoor greenhouse. Custom-made by hand out of high-quality materials, these one-of-a-kind structures will become the centerpiece of your living room.

Roughly the size of a refrigerator -- as tall as a person -- the greenhouse can easily accommodate dozens of orchids, ferns, even live animals like poison-arrow frogs or reptiles. It's built to create any conditions necessary for the growth of your indoor garden, and can be retrofitted to incorporate additional exhaust, humidity or air purification systems. The roof is unattached and easily comes off for transport; the whole unit can easily be moved by two people and is surprisingly light weight.

I custom-make each greenhouse by hand, wire a full-spectrum lighting system for all types of plant growth, and finish it with materials that will withstand the test of time. It can be used indoors or out, although if used outdoors, take additional precautions with electrical set-up. I thought up the idea after searching for about a year for something smaller than a traditional outdoor greenhouse but larger than miniature greenhouses commercially available. Since it didn't exist, I thought, I'll make it myself.


Here are a few features:

• Made with top-quality hardwood
• Primed, painted and sealed to withstand moisture
• Can be used indoors or out
• Full-light-spectrum fluorescent tubes, wired and mounted
• Detachable lid
• Strong exhaust fan built in to roof
• Metal hooks at the apex for hanging plants
• Digital hygrometer
• Vintage, quaint design
• Finials on roof
• Painted white for better reflectivity

It is incredibly sturdy; the version photographed has been moved across the country three times. Someone helping me move it noted that it was "built like a brick shit-house."

• 4' wide x 6' tall x 2' deep
• Approx. 100 lbs.

• Solid hardwood
• Glass and plexiglass
• High-quality water-resistant primer
• Bathroom & Basement water- and mold-resistant paint

[ Display model available at discount.]
