How do I start a two stroke in the cold with no choke?

I need to start a two stroke motor (49.9cc) and the weather is cold, the motor has no choke option on the carburetor. How do I make this motor start working? If anybody has a solution I'm open to any ideas. Thanks!

    There's a spray called Quick Start, put a squirt in the carburetor and give it a try. Repeat if it starts to sputter.

    Be careful with starting fluid.  Don't spray it into the engine.  You could wash the cylinder of any oil film, then the piston will gall.

    Hold your hand over the air inlet.  That's how to choke it.

    What kind of engine doesn't have a choke???

    Use a block heater or a hair dryer.  Start the engine when the block is warm to the touch.

    Try a shot of starting fluid.
