decided to try the pe mesh greenhouse.seemed cheaper than anything id build.this green house cost just over $100
very happy with it so far.was missing afew polls Rolling Eyes ..end up getting part refund  Very Happy
ive laid some weed mat and pinned down with mat pegs and bricks.added center support was a bit flimsy .still could not go climbing on it ..lol.but will hold hang basket etc.
chucked in a few recent cutting see how things go.

ive been asking myself the same question..
thinks will be fine rooting cutting,might have tomove buttons during our 40 degree days..(around 3 weeks).
ive been keeping an eye one temps..if 20 out side will be 31 inside greenhouse.if i open windows it drops 5 degrees.might just need extra shade cloth and keep windows open.looking at solar vent too

Since cacti stop to grow when the temperature reached to 50 'C, I cover the greenhouse over by 50% shade cloth in summer, between mid of November and mid of March.

It will still reach to 50'C some days but can manage within 50'C reasonably.
