In this episode, you will learn about reflective shade cloth aka aluminet shade cloth and how it may help your plants to photosynthesis more if you are growing plants in the desert. You will discover why your plants might shut down during the middle of the day if you are growing vegetables in the desert. Next, John will do a light test (lux) to see how much sunlight there is in full sun with no shade cloth, under the 40% aluminet shade cloth, and under a black 40% shade cloth. John will also perform temperature testing of the ground and plant leaves under full sun, 40% aluminet shade cloth and under 40% black shade cloth. John will share his opinions about using shade cloth in the desert and why it may be beneficial. You will learn about the specific reflective shade cloth John purchased and how to get it for the lowest price. You will learn why you should purchase finished aluminet shade cloth with pre-installed grommets.
