Geodesic-Dome Greenhouse Kit
A plastic-covered geodesic-dome sitting in a yard with the dome door open and green trees behind it.

With a Geodesic-Dome Greenhouse Kit, one can erect a geodesic-shaped greenhouse made simply of 1-inch-diameter PVC pipe and greenhouse plastic sheeting. The manufacturer claims the structure is lightweight yet sturdy, long-lasting (no rusting or rotting), and easy to move or disassemble. The kit includes PVC pipe struts, connecting hubs, hub center rings, heavy-duty fabric and stainless-steel zip ties, extra struts to create a door, and an instruction manual; not included are the greenhouse plastic sheets and clips to secure the plastic to the struts, both available from local or online greenhouse supply outlets. There are over two dozen kits from which to choose, depending on size and plastic layers desired.
