Cost has risen. Tubing doubled this year. Shame, for the extra $1500 I would have tried to swing it. What kind of heat you using?
Not sure yet with the sections going in. I have natural gas on the property. Not sure about wood with chemical use in the mechanical side of the shop.

Thus radient, can use an electric hot water heater to start or maybe gas... Ground temp is 48-52 pending your location, set the thermo to that, sure beats being colder....

That's pretty cool fellas, never seen any caterpillars. But we get all kinds of wierd bugs flying around the lights at work. But this moth was absoluty beautiful to see up close and in person, pics don't do it justice. I made it crawl onto my hand so I could move it out of harms way without actually touching it so I didn't damage it's wings.

Speaking of bugs! We are on a Monarch kick right now. We have purchased a few milkweed plants for them and have quite a few chrysalis's in cages

I want to buy some monarch chrysali, but can't because I don't have enough milkweed my yard and could not find any to buy this year or last.

Are you looking for potted plants or seeds? Can't help with plants, but could get you seed from common milkweed Asclepias syrica, butterfly weed A. tuberosa, and a cultivar of swamp milkweed A. incarnata. I've got all three growing. The common is a weed around here, the other two I have in ornamental beds.

BTW, if anyone else would like some milkweed seed, let me know, easy enough to gather, and I've got lots of plants from which to harvest.
