White Walls for a Grow Room
I am sending you this email because I have seen your video and think its top notch! I have been following it very carefully and want to make a small grow room. The only thing is I can not find is Visqueen plastic anywhere and I’m not even sure where to look. Could you give me some advice as to where I might find it? I live in Southern Ontario if that might help with some companies that you might know of.
Thanks for all your help,
You can use paint to cover the walls in your new grow room and it is available locally at your hardware store. Try using white paint. I like using white latex semi-gloss enamel because it is easier to clean than flat white or white with a matte finish. You can also use Foylon, Mylar or white plastic. All work well. Foylon and Mylar are more expensive but more reflective. A good reflective material will increase light on the perimeter of the garden by as much as 20 percent.
You can find all of the above products at most hydroponic stores. Simply go to Google and type in the search words “Mylar” “white plastic” or “Foylon.” Remember to compare pricing!
Silver reflective walls were set around the perimeter of this grow room.
The walls in this grow room are painted white and they reflect 10% more light back to plants.
