    Default Bubble Wrap

    I'm having a major problem with condensation inside my GH. A combination of using natural gas heat and just watering the orchids and a humidity level of about 60% - 70% causes lots of water on the sides of the GH here in Michigan. I want to add a layer of bubble wrap to the inside to channel the water down and away from the plants. I need two strips 4' x 16'. Anyone have a source for this stuff.....online or local (SE Michigan)? Please PM me.

    A google search of "bubble wrap 48"" turns up multi online sites to purchase it. It looks like 90' in the smallest length for about $50. You mau want to call local shipping stores and see if they carry that width and if they would sell you what you need.

    I'm sure you found it by now. When I was selling building materials, we sold a bubble wrap insulation, with foil on both sides. I believe it came 4-5 & 6 feet wide, in various size rolls. I can't recall the brand name, but it did have a high R factor.
