    Default What Percentage of My Shade Cloth

    Hi all,

    I just bought the 6 ft. x 15 ft. Evergreen Sun Screen Shade Cloth ---- Vendor information removed - see FAQs on Posting ---- for my orchids in patio. I'm feeling that is not enough bright for my orchids which are most Vanda, Cattleyya, Cymbidium, Laelia... Do you think the shade cloth is okay with my orchids or i need to change the difference one? and what is the percentage of my shade cloth. My patio is facing south and west. Here is my picture of my patio at 10 o'clock morning. Would you please give me some suggestion.

    Thanks,

    Would you know the filtration % of this material?. Vanda's require more light and best method would be to check with a light meter if they are getting correct amount. I would recommend to check light levels every 2 hours on a day

    Yes, I would like to know the filtration percentage. The cover label of shade cloth does not say anything so it makes me confuse.
