I bought some clear plastic (PVC) sheeting to partly cover my growing area so as to better control humidity. I bought some the other day only to discover when I got it home that it has quite a strong "new plastic" smell. Although I guess this will fade with time I'm concerned that the compounds producing this smell might be toxic to my plants. Has anyone used this stuff?
Cheers,
Tim

Hmmm. I have no idea, but am interested. Hopefully, someone has experience with it.

I am not an expert in this - but if you are refering to the standard 8 mil variety. I think they make entire hoop type greenhouses with it? Could be wrong about the type of material they use.
