This fire extinguisher was 20$, lasts 10yrs, and can be used for self defense in several ways.
Also you can mount it on the wall it comes with the bracket to do so.

Self defense? Interesting. I guess you could give someone a nasty concussion.

It's not fireproof. It will melt. Because of how thin it is. Be careful on how you use it. You may end up reflecting heat, and directing it to a single spot.

I think parchment paper will still burn under high heat (a flame) but I am not sure.

What is your purpose? To contain the fire?

Stop. What you are hearing here is that it is not a good idea. Without adequate air flow and under improper conditions, you are risking a fire hazard. In your case, the answer to your original question is, "It is not safe for you to grow plants under your bed."

I mustn’t have been thinking straight. :oops: I’m young, so I don’t know that much about fire safety. Sorry if I was asking dumb questions.
