A DIY enthusiast has revealed how he managed to turn a piece of furniture into an indoor greenhouse.
Ikea’s glass cabinets can be used to store plants – a perfect hack for homeowners and renters who don’t have a garden.
Fans can build their own indoor greenhouse for less than $100 if they buy Ikea’s Detolf glass cabinet, Shelby Vittek told the Modern Farmer blog.
The cabinets are available in black brown or white colors and the maximum weight per shelf is 8 lbs.
Indoor greenhouses can help keep frost and cold air out of the house, while still allowing light in.
Gardeners will need to install grow lights and strips that can create the climate for the plants, Modern Farmer revealed.
And, you may need to add a humidifier or water-filled tray if you are growing plants that need high humidity.
You may want to install a mini fan to prevent mold from growing.
Creatives can also personalize their showcase by adding mesh or acrylic shelves, or heating mats.
