    Reflective Mylar for indoor gardening

    Reflective Mylar
    Indoor gardeners use Mylar in an indoor garden to save precious light: 98% of the light striking it is reflected to plants where it belongs. This increases the efficiency of your lighting system. Mylar is a metallic film that can be taped or tacked directly to a flat surface or wall. .001 MM mylar should be used over flat surfaces. .002 MM Mylar can be used over open studs if needed."
