"I was thinking about black poly but not sure how much heat I'm talking about. Would probably have to support it off the aluminum to avoid melting with an insulator of some sort."

"Actually, I could just as easily set up my towers in sets of rows and columns just as easily in a greenhouse. I just don't have a greenhouse at this time, so that's why mine are set up against the wall. Mine will last just as long as the…"
