Re: Mylar


My husband converted one of his workbenches into a "potting bench" for me.
I use adjustable shelves on the bottom for my seedlings, and because the
bench is wood, I just screw the flourescent lights onto the self above.

To keep in heat and maximize light, I purchased a roll of bubble/foil
insullation and covered the sides on the lower part of the bench.  This
insulation has plastic bubbles sandwiches between heavy metal foil.  The
bubble center is really bubble wrap like that used for shipping. The product
is flexible/bendable, yet durable enough for my purposes.  Should be
available at Home Depot or Lowes etc...
