Good article.

I'm considering the construction of a structure to protect my bonsai from the summer elements: wind and direct sunlight. I'm in the Sacramento Valley where summer highs can reach 110 F and we routinely have two to three weeks of temperatures above 100. Occasional north winds and associated very low relative humidities are also tough on foliage although I am sheltered from direct winds.

I already have quite a bit of area that receives indirect sunlight (northern exposure) so what I'm looking for is a structure that provides very bright but probably filtered light.

My question is; Would you use a light shade cloth, clear plastic or tinted plastic? I'm leaning toward a plastic due to the winter protection advantages.

I should clarify a bit. My space is limited so a hoop structure with flexible plastic sheeting is not an option for me. I plan to build the framework with lumber and use corrugated plastic sheeting. My question is color: clear, opaque, or colored. The structure will not be air tight but will have a couple of partially open sides.

  Outside the Bible, these six words are the most famous in all the literature of the world. They were spoken by Hamlet when he was thinking aloud, and they are the most famous words in Shakespeare because Hamlet was speaking not only for himself but also for every thinking man and woman.
