That is a nifty little greenhouse for starting seeds. I speeded the video up even more ;-) I don't have a greenhouse, but I've got the tender plants that have to be schlepped inside every winter down to 4. Good for you to try some propagation.

Neez's greenhouse is amazing, where does she find the time?!?

I will limit myself to 2 pictures, the foliage and blossoms of Trachystemon orientalis, more commonly known as Russian borage. The leaves are huge and fuzzy, the unusual flowers bloom just as the leaves start to emerge. Last fall I divided the mother plant into about a dozen new starts so now it's scattered throughout my different garden areas.
I expected the flowers to be larger in size since the leaves are so big; just looking at them you'd think they were separate plants from each other, very pretty.
