I want to run another desktop environment in a second terminal

FC 25. I'm currently running KDE Plasma on Workstation, but I want to try the cinnamon-desktop-environment. I've tried various methods of starting a second terminal using startx but it always fails. I've tried following various suggestions in forums; startx -- :2 cinnamon-desktop-environment, failed. what do I have to do to do this please? To be clear: KDE Plasma is running in terminal 1 (F1) if you like; i want to try Cinnamon in terminal 2 (F2). How do I do that?
