Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AloeVeraGrower Very pleased and happy plants
I bought two of these smaller greenhouses for my plants this winter. Instead of putting them on my patio I decided to put them in the back of my yard, sheltered on two sides by the fence and metal shed. I'm using spare bricks to hold them down instead of the metal stakes, and even in strong winds they remain standing. Christmas lights are keeping the inside aloe vera plants warm. The 3x3 greenhouse was obviously shorter and harder to scoot the plants into; I prefer the 4x4 version just because it's easier to squat inside and move the plants around. These are EXACTLY what I have needed for years and am thrilled to have them! I'll take them down at the end of winter and store in the round holders for next winter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by frost Easy up; keeps things warm and moist
I have only used this for a couple of weeks, but it's survived one windstorm of 50+ MPH winds already and it's keeping the frost off my herb and veggie starts. It's more of a tall cold frame than an actual greenhouse. It took 5-10 minutes to assemble and another half hour to put weed fabric under it and to stake and tie down (I don't camp much... I'm sure my husband could have done it faster!). The zippers are holding up so far. I put a bunch of 2-liter bottles of water (from our emergency water storage) inside to help keep the temperature stable. Every time I open it, it's warm but not hot and feels humid. The plants are doing well as they wait for warmer night temps to go into the garden ground.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Owl82 Didn't work for me
I normally do not write negative reviews, but I wanted to share my experience with potential customers. I read the really great reviews and decided to purchase as a result of the high ratings. I followed the manufacturers instructions for set up and use. The set up was easy, but within a week of use, the zippers broke. Within two weeks of use even though I followied the instructions for using a heater within the greenhouse, my three citrus plants died. I returned the greenhouse as a result. I think that this greenhouse may work for other plants, but it does not work well for citrus plants in my experience. I hope this helps others in their purchasing decisions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ahamp1 Holds up to weather
I purchased one of these in November, thinking I would first use it as a shelter in the pen of a wounded Pekin duck we rescued earlier in the year, and then I would use it more traditionally. I just purchased another; the duck is attached to it and I don't think she'll be giving it up! ; )
We did use a lightbulb in the house, based on another reviewers suggestion, and it probably upped the temperature another ten degrees in the greenhouse.
It's made quite well and withstood our rugged weather this winter, including a snowfall of seven inches and some 50 mph winds. It cleans beautifully (thank heavens, see duck comments above), also.
The photo does not show that there are stakes included so that you can anchor the top of the greenhouse. In our case, we anchored to the pen so the stake lines would not hamper entry and exit, I could see where you would have to be more careful when entering if the stake line was towards the ground.
It's roomy, but you do have to "duck" when you are in it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greenerbean Great greenhouse
It was easy to put up and plenty roomy for the plants we had in mind. Will set up with heater and timer for the really cold nights.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by flyfshrmn PLANTHOUSE 4 FT. X 4 FT. POP-UP GREENHOUSE
We put this up and had plants coming out of the dirt in three days. It went up easily, appears durable so far and traps heat well. I would like it better if it had an opening on each side for power and water access. It provides adequate room to set up several dozen starter tubs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LoveAmaryllis A must have for gardners
We bought one of these planthouses for our delicate potted plants that we keep on our screened porch three seasons out of the year. After receiving the first one we were impressed enough to buy a second one. My husband put small plate heaters and we put stainless steel bowls of water and small stones into provide heat and moisture for our plants. The plants have thrived in these planthouses this winter and we did not need to find room in the house or garage for my potted plants. This is a must have for any gardner to protect your plants from the winter freezes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrTomatoLover Overall very sturdy and easy to put up.
Seems to be working out great. Still learning how to work with plants in a greenhouse environment. It is different then working with plants that are outside all the time. Realizing the plants are totally enclosed and you can just close the screen door for fresh air and more. I purchased it for my tomatoe plants which seem to grow better in the fall/winter time. I live in AZ and the summer temps are too hot to bear fruit unless the nite temps fall below 80 degrees which in the summer never happens. GOOD THING TO REMEMBER,ENCLOSED PLANTS NEED TO BE POLLINATED BY HAND TO BEAR FRUIT. You do not have the Bees and more TO DO THE POLLINATING FOR YOU. Like I said I am still experimenting. As far as keeping the frost off the plants it works great. I hung a trouble lite inside to keep the nite time temps/.frost from freezing the plants.Put the lite on a timer to turn off/on the lite.You do build up condensation inside that does drip back onto the plants and your Lite BULB. Cool water on hot bulb will pop the bulb so protect the bulb.
