shady moss hoop house
so i wanna grow moss, orchids, ferns, liverworts, etc... in a heated, misted, fanned and even maybe cooled hoop house. as ya'll can see, im in wisconsin. which brings me to my question. what would u use for a covering?
this wont be a production house but a hobby house. ponds, water and plants everywhere. the plants that im wanting to grow arnt into change. they are slow and temperamental (sorta like me).
i have a 2x blown poly to start off with (18% shade)
i also have liquid shading. this shading type mostly falls off after freezing starts. the benefit of this stuff is that one can easily make 'shade' or 'hot' spots. the problem is that it falls off and is in constant flux thruout the year.
i was also thinking about putting on a ~70% shade cloth. that would give me a total of 88% shade. its not that expensive and will be constant.
or maybe there is a 'white' plastic that i can put over the 2x poly (or maybe even use 2x white poly instead of clear?) that will be a better and easier choice? tho im a bit afraid of what type of light it will block out.
anywho, any advice, experences or comments will be greatly appreciated,
