Is green plastic OK for greenhouse?
Plastic Sheeting Opaque green will not let in enough light. A double layer can be used to reduce heat loss in the winter, but it will cut the light intensity by 8 to 10 percent. A single layer of polyethylene sheeting allows 85 to 88 percent of the natural sunlight to reach your plants.
