Re: growing plants with reflected light
I have been wanting to increase the light on my non-sun side of my greenhouse by using reflected light. I was looking at the foil-covered sun blockers that are put in car windows while they're parked. The layer of foil is very thin, and tears easily, so they might not hold up well. But foil seems a good way to start as an experiment.
I've also read that high-gloss white exterior paint will reflect light well.
The soda can/fire starter is something I always keep handy, and tampons are great "kindling" to start a fire in an emergency and store easily. :shock:
