Understanding Greenhouse Plastic Properties

LIGHT TRANSMITTANCE

Our 6 mil greenhouse film is designed with a light transmittance greater than 90%.  This means over 90% of light passes into your greenhouse through the plastic sheeting. High light transmission is essential to allow your plants to thrive.

GREENHOUSE SHEETING LIGHT DIFFUSION

The greenhouse film's diffusion allows light to be scattered around your hoop house and helps your plants get even lighting in all areas inside your structure.  Diffused light is particularly important for tall or self-shading plants that typically would get uneven light exposure in direct sunlight. This enables you to have fuller and more even growth in your greenhouse.

BENEFITS OF PLASTIC GREENHOUSE AND HOOP HOUSE COVERINGS

Direct light from the sun is not ideal for most plants.  Direct light means that no particles in the atmosphere or coverings are dispersing sunlight,  which can lead to scorch, uneven heating, and shadowing of nearby plants.  On a cloudy or overcast day, you will notice a lack of shadows because the light is being dispersed in many different directions.  Clear greenhouse plastic acts similarly to the clouds to diffuse the light but still allows more than 90% of the light through.  The plastic polyethylene film converts the direct sunlight into a more evenly distributed and dispersed light in your hoop house.  This allows the light to penetrate deeper into your plants, which improves your yields.  

Greenhouse plastic sheeting helps with light dispersion and creates a more uniform temperature inside your hoop house.  Direct sunlight causes hot spots on your plants, just like if you were standing outside in the direct sunlight on a hot sunny day.  Once the sun goes behind a cloud, you feel much cooler.  Your plants feel the same way.  Areas that are getting direct sunlight can be subject to sun scorch while the plants' shaded parts are nice and cool.  This can cause die-off and stress on parts of your plants that are overexposed to direct sunlight.  Light dispersion creates a more consistent temperature for your plants, enabling more uniform growth.

WHAT TO AVOID WHEN BUYING GREENHOUSE PLASTIC

When buying greenhouse plastic, be sure not to get it from a local hardware store such as Home Depot or Lowes. Yes, they sell cheap 6 mil plastic film, but it is not UV stabilized.  You will be lucky to get 4 months of use out of their plastic before it disintegrates, and you will have a mess of torn and brittle plastic to clean up.  Any greenhouse plastic you buy wants to make sure that it is UV stabilized.

Bootstrap Farmer's 6 mil clear greenhouse plastic has 89% light transmittance to bring plenty of diffused light into your structure for healthier and happier plants.

    Fertilization

    Fertilization

    It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

    During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

    You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

    It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
