Choosing The Best Shade Cloth

Does it really matter what color or what shade intensity? Can’t I just put the default black 80% on everything and be ok?

Will my plants suffer significantly if they get too much or to little shade?

Yes, No, and Depends!

It is important when selecting your shade cloth to start by understanding your plants and your environment better. Most good plant reference books or online plant databases will provide you with an idea of what kind of light intensities and temperatures are optimum for your particular plant selection. It is important to understand your plants optimum environment in comparison to your environment or microclimate.
