Palram Nature Series Mythos Hobby Greenhouse Review

The Palram Nature Series Mythos Hobby Greenhouse is a real hobbyist greenhouse. It’s built with twin walled polycarbonate over a brushed aluminum, rust-resistant frame. And sitting on a heavy-duty, long lasting galvanized steel base.

Plants love the diffused light that comes through the clear, twin-wall polycarbonate panels, and the double walled glazing twice the heat retention of a 1-layer panel. Note that Palram is primarily a plastic and polycarbonate manufacturer and greenhouses are only part of their business.

The gutters (yes, it has real gutters) collect fresh rainwater that your plants will love. And adjustable roof vents will control the heat.

Palram Nature Series Mythos Hobby Greenhouse Features

This is what I think of when I think greenhouses.  It’s a traditional style, hard-sided building with all of the essential features.

 

polycarbonate panels slide into place

Slide in panels are a plus. All glazing, glass or plastic, expands and contracts a with temperature. The slide in feature allows this without breaking.

The polycarbonate panels over a metal frame make for a strong unit.  Polycarbonate is just about unbreakable, and the double walls add some insulation that extends your growing time.  Aluminum framing material is light and corrosion resistant, an important feature in a greenhouse with lots of humidity and fertilizer salts.

The factory specs claim that it will go together in 4 or 5 hours.  Plan to have a helper as some of the parts are big.  You’ll need a ladder and some common tools.  They provide a handy nut driver for their fasteners. The polycarbonate panels slide into channels that allow room for expansion and contraction.

Amazon reviews are good with 67% reporting 5-stars (42%) or 4-stars (25%).  Most of the lower ratings were due to assembly problems.  It really is a two-person job.  Most reviewers report that’s their greenhouses have stood up well to storms, but a few mentioned that it had moved around.  Greenhouses are big wind catchers.  Whatever brand you buy, Be sure to select a flat and level site for your greenhouse and anchor it well.

Sizes

Palram Nature Series greenhouses come in several sizes from small plant starters to larger “feed the whole family” sizes.  My advice is to choose the one you think fits, then go up a size.  There’s  never enough room for everything.
