BTL Liners makes customized greenhouse light deprivation covers. Our covers are the best you can purchase due to the high quality we require of all the products we sell. Whether you have a small backyard greenhouse or a large commercial one, you can find a light deprivation cover to fit your gardening room.
Certain plants will only bloom with carefully controlled light and dark cycles. Depending on where you live, the sun may not cooperate with your plants' needs. A greenhouse creates an artificially warm environment to extend the growing period long after the first frost.
Light deprivation covers, sometimes called blackout covers, are another way you can control the environmental conditions for your plants. You can force flowers to bloom sooner or more often over the course of a season. Some growers have taken annual plants and extended the growing season by several months.
To properly use light deprivation covers, you need to understand your plants and the covers. The time of darkness required varies greatly based on the plant. Research the optimum number of hours of artificial dark you need to create the effect you want in your plant before using the blackout covers. Additionally, know the light filtering amount your plant requires. Some plants do not need completely opaque light deprivation curtains, whereas others need 100 percent light blocking.
Another use for your blackout curtains is controlling heat during the summer. In the summer heat, the interior of a greenhouse can become dangerously hot for your plants, especially if you don't have enough ventilation. In a pinch, during a heatwave, use your light deprivation tarps to keep the summer sun from heating the interior of your greenhouse too much, though proper ventilation is preferred for a long-term solution.
Light deprivation covers have multiple uses in your greenhouse. Having these covers on hand is always a smart move for gardeners in any type of facility equipped with greenhouses. Get your durable blackout covers from us at BTL Liners!
