    You all NEED! mylar now!

    I could never find mylar, but by chance I found like, construction paper coated with mylar at Michaels today. It was 3.49 for a 2 foot by 19 inch sheet and it was worth EVERY penny for a couple of them. Unlike rolled mylar it's stiff so it's easy to install. I put them on the pack of my terrarium (I used to have foil) and WOW! MUCH BETTER! I can grow plants like utrics in places that used to not have enough light!

    I'm going to buy a couple more sheets and cover the 2 ends of the terrarium now! WOW way better! It's SO much better than foil and white cardboard!

    Still using foil myself, but I did upgrade from 3 18" 15w tubes to 4 4' 40w tubes today.
    Still have the 18" tubes running, but they're only over the sarr seeds (and running 24 hrs). The 4' tubes are running 16 hrs and cover everything and then some

    Utrics do suck for the most part, but something has to grow in the nether-reagions of the terrarium!

    I would have bought a roll but couldn't find one lol. The two sheets were just as good for me, and stiff. I'm gonna get a couple more lol.

    You should be able to buy rolls at most hydroponics supply stores. Snoop around in Michael's and see if they have rolls of "mylar" wrapping paper.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I did and couldn't fine anything besides cellophane. It was in the specialty paper section beside the drawing pads and stuff.

    I installed Panda Film recently. Thick stuff, reflects nicely and it's not much $$.
    Also it's white which I like cause it makes for a cleaner looking environment and it really seems to reflect the light nicely! Dews got dew-er in less than a week.
    Google it and it will be found.
    And for the record, I'm not a big fan of Ultrics neither, except the Aquatics...
