Reasons to install reflective material

For plants to produce a high yield, an optimal level of lighting is necessary. You can use reflective hoods to start with, but when growers want to maximize lighting efficiency, they opt for mylar and other types of reflective wall coverings. Using these to cover your grow rooms or grow tents walls increases your light efficiency by reflecting it back to the plant. You save on electricity bills by installing mylar and poly sheets because they maximize your light usage.

What is the best reflective material for a grow room / grow tent?

Mylar can be very easily installed on your grow room or grow tent’s walls and happens to reflect up to 97% of the light. The risk of hotspots with patterned mylar is very low. Hotspots are points where the light is too focused and can lead to burning your plants. Poly, on the other hand, can reflect 90% of the light. Although less efficient, it is quite popular because the back is black, which stops unwanted light from entering the room, allowing for more privacy.

While installing reflective coverings, it is vital to keep the films scratch and wrinkle-free. Wrinkles and scratches can lead to hot spots, which you should avoid at all costs.
