i was just wondering, would this be a good place to keep my flytraps in? would it act as a greenhouse and meet all the requirements of one? the reason i like this is because it stays on the ground so it cannot be blow away very easily. i want a real home for my flytraps, instead of the glass table outside. so would this act as a greenhouse and a home for my flytraps?

well those are not durable and it can get quite windy here, sometimes experiencing 80mph+ wind speeds on very strong storms ( it only takes one big wind storm to take down one of those walk in plastic or fabric greenhouses) and also, this one is perfect size for me now and its made out of a durable material. so it will work? it wont overheat or anything as long as i have the vents open?

I think it wont make a difference if its in the green house or on your table.
Unless you have some air vents, it will overheat and may wilt your vfts. And when you expand your collection (lets say tall sarrs) you will either have to buy a green house a bit bigger or start to grow it again on your table.

I grow my temperate cps on a picnic bench outside and theyre perfectly fine.

Its your choice though. :D

thats a cold frame not a gh. it keeps your plants about 10 degrees warmer in the winter. it will overheat if you use it as something to keep your plants in during the summer. Just put the plants in a window.
