plastic greenhouse offgassing...
So, hubby got me one of these for my ever-growing plant collection:
It's cute, but it's almost entirely plastic. Aside from wondering what will happen to it once summer hits (i.e. will it melt? and I'm totally being serious), I wonder if the offgassing is at all harmful to my plants. Right now, since it's fresh out of the box, it smells like a swimming pool. I know that if I leave it outside for x-amount of time, it'll offgas enough so that I can't smell it anymore. Does anyone here have any experience with these plastic greenhouse setups? (FYI, I haven't put anything in it yet. I want to let it offgas first.)
Also, it's got that front flap that I can zip open and roll up, but shouldn't it have more ventilation than that? Should I consider cutting some holes in the sides to allow better airflow?
