Ok. I searched and searched buy cannot find the post someone made showing black (?) clips they used to secure the bubble wrap to the inside of the greenhouse. They also said they could double as plant hangers.
Anyone recall this ?

MJ, I just wet my bubble wrap with some soapy water and stuck it to the inside, it's staying in place very well.
I will be ordering some of those clips soon though.

Thumbs up Thanks, I actually plan to use them dual purpose, both for the bubble wrap and it increase some hanging space in one of my greenhouses.

Here is a pic I took showing how the clips double as a hanger.
Just a note, these will only work on the smaller metal tipped
hangers, not the ones with large plastc ends for instance.

That's what Zip Ties are for Hilarious! you can loop one thru and make a one size fits all hanger.

Going a little further with mjsponies idea about running zipties through the plant clips for large end hanging baskets.....
I thought of another idea that would allow for more baskets to be hung. I took a closet rod & ziptied it to the clips.....
now I have a long rod to hang baskets on the entire length of the greenhouse.

Rick, I have been watching all your post here and on the other forum. I also have the 6X8, just got it late this past summer. You have give me many ideas by looking at your pictures.

Like the bubble wrap and hooks you used " have checked them out from the listing you gave a big thanks. There shipping is a little high but will work on getting the items from them. As for the silver one you said it came from Lowes, I have not been able to find it there or on there web site. Would you happen to have a product number for it?

I have the exact same heater you have not in use yet need to run the gas line first, and fast electric bill is knocking me down. Could you tell me how you hung it up on the wall?

Wow a lot of questions, sorry but thanks for the help, Sincerely, James I tip my hat to you.

I just checked out the bubble clips .. the shipping costs more than the clips do - anyone know of another source or reasonable alternative?

They are about the same price with the postage. I'll continue to look for a reasonable facsimile that I can get here.

I checked both sites (thanks Rick for searching!) I found the Juliana Clips - 10 to a bag - $7.73 a bag - at Wayfair.com:

http://www.wayfair.com/Poly-Tex-Plant-Hangers-for-Snap-and-G...

Free shipping on orders over $49.00.

It will take 7 bags to go over $49.00.

I'd be wanting two bags .. if anyone else is interested, I'd be willing to do a bulk order but I'd need enough people to get over the 7 bag limit.

Raise your hand if you're interested and how many bags you'd be wanting and if we get enough to go over the 7 bags, we can figure out cost and postage (for me to send them to you) for each person.

You all are just the best, Thanks Rick, Cheryl and Anne. Anne I could take 2 bags, you let me know what you decide. Rick will be looking for your other pictures.

Anne had been following your posting on your home made cloner and was wondering if it is still working well for you? I looked at a one last week 8 spot one for 89.00. And it has not so hot reviews. I am sure I can make one for a lot less than that. Let me know.

Thanks to all, James

James it's working awesomely! I love it as it roots things that can be very stubborn. What's surprising is that the water in the machine stays relatively warm!
