I think this is a good question. I've had seedlings with a narrow rim
on both standards and falls. They look fine with a nice effect from a
couple of feet away, but on close examination the tissue simply looks
dead - sort of the color and substance of a paper sack. It may not be
the case here, since these seem to have a metallic finish. Mine sure
didn't have that. But the question is still valid on how it works.
