AdorableRebeccaI picked the black 17” version up from the store and assembled it within minutes. It sits on a dresser in a dark part of a bedroom, so I installed black 7” light bar on the enclosure ceiling. You can’t see the light at all, because of the black trim on the greenhouse. It looks awesome! I currently have 3 4” plants in it but all 3 of them do not touch and have lots of room to grow.
Breaks easily in shippingChristinaI agree with other reviewers that this needs some weather stripping to function as a greeenhouse. I also don't like that the base is detached from the frame.
The packaging for this is really poor. I have had two shipped with shattered or cracked glass in the front frame. Which could have been preventable with good packing from the warehouse and box design. Definitely buy in person and examine it closely.
Love it!SusanI had the old tabletop greenhouse with the doors at the top. It was always hard to work with. When watering the plants, water would spill everywhere. The front access is so much better. It also allows the greenhouse to keep a bit more humidity since the top is closed. I just bought another.
A Cool herb containerCathyI'm looking forward to giving it a try.
great itemRaymondgreat item using it now for a christmas display
GardenErlindaThese are wonderful for bringing small plants into house that prevents cats from tasting them.
Fun Terrarium TrishaPretty easy to put together, looks great! I bought some plant lights to go in it.
Not a good greenhouse but not a bad productEricaIf you're looking for an accent piece, this is a great product. However, if you're looking for a functioning greenhouse, look elsewhere. For something advertised as a greenhouse, it does not really hold humidity, and this isn't something you can just fix with a bit of silicon like other greenhouses. However, if you just want something to prevent your pets from attacking your plants or to hold things, then it works quite well. I had it shipped and didn't have any of the issues other people had with warping, cracks, or scratches. Taking off the film on the panels does require a lot of patience (and some tweezers) but is doable. As a greenhouse I'd give it 2 stars, ,but as a decoration I'd give it 4.
Good PurchaseShanitaThis is too cute!!! I put some of my smaller plants in this and it is great!!
Cute but poor qualityRosemaryMine came bent in two spots on the base. The glass is covered in a film and you have to peel off and your better off taking it out of the frame the take it off. The film gets caught on parts of the frame. If your looking for something that seals it does not. Two of the rivet clips keep coming off so I ordered paper fasteners so the frame doesn’t collapse and break. Would recommend using microfiber cloth to clean otherwise it’s a pain to clean. One of the little arm things that it holds door open with was broke upon arrival. I live about 6 hrs from closest IKEA so returning isn’t a option. Wouldn’t recommend this product to anyone.
I wish I could give it zero stars!DianaArrived with cracks to the plexiglass in multiple places. The frame is slightly bent, and the plastic screw like things keep popping out. IKEA expects me to bring it into the store, and it’s over 2 hours away. That’s literally wasting my gas for $32 and some change.
Super cute little greenhouse!KarenThis does exactly what I need it to do--give a bit of extra humidity to my baby plants and cuttings. You definitely have to seal it up if you want to increase humidity, but there are lots of tutorials online. Easy to assemble. Looks great. Very happy with my purchase.
Functional and CuteHeatherI outfitted my greenhouse with weather stripping, grow lights, and a humidity thermometer so I could monitor my plants inside of it. I use it for an actual greenhouse for my humidity loving plants and it's working well! I will say that getting the bottom secure onto the greenhouse is a pain because if it doesn't line up right, it will not fit. Your fingerprints get on the plastic windows easily, so I clean it frequently.
Pleasantly SurprisedLisaLove the look and it's bigger than I imagined. Can't wait ti style it.
Like most reviewers...JenniferThe top part of the item seemed bent and doesn't allow the door to close properly unless it's manipulated. Door should hang in place when not propped open. Despite, it serves its purpose and looks nice.
Great design, but a little bit flimsyDavidBought this to put in my garden window as I have 3 cats that get into my herbs. Fits perfectly and I love that I can close it. It does tend to try to flex a bit after assembly if you pick it up, so you have to be careful when moving it. (I recommend moving it with the tray, not separately) Overall, would buy again.
Saved my plantsJessicaMy cats kept eating and knocking over all my plants, two of these and now I can enjoy my plants and my cats can't.
Very NiceChristaIt’s cute but I myself had some difficulty assembling it. If you want the protective plastic removed from the plexiglass properly from certain pieces you need to remove the plexiglass from the frame to peel it off and it was difficult to install the tiny fasteners due to the fact that the holes to install them are way up in the corners. However, once assembled it’s really a nice looking item to have and am overall happy with it.
Cute GreenhouseMary C.Looks really cute in my sunroom
Useful, but with flaws.RyanI wanted to like this greenhouse. However, there are some complications:
1. The plastic rivets don't work very well. A screw+nut worked.
2. Nothing clicks or really locks together perfectly. It can still be dismantled easily.
3. Only 1 of the 2 "hood props" function. I just turn it all the way around.
4. There could be some sort of magnet holding the cover closed. It's loose.
One plus is that the bottom is removable, so you can potentially put this in your garden against a garage wall to protect against predators.
