Am building 8 SIPs for strawberry plants which will be outside. (2 built and 6 half done). Containers I have are fairly thick, and i believe UV resistant. Problem is that they are black which isn't going to help the mix and roots stay cool.
What's the best color and paint to paint them with?
My best guess is: http://www.truevalue.com/product/Fusion ... n%20fusion
Guessing gloss white would reflect the most light and heat. Krylon Fusion is the only stuff I have found that will seriously stick to plastics long term with out extra prep work and primer. (Really do not like the 2x coverage stuff that is suppose to bond to plastics. My experience showed me you get double thick coat over half the surface area. and it ends up with the usual rattle can issues.)
Was looking at the flat tan (which would probably look better with the container on racks of PT 2x4's), but I am not paying $20/can for flat tan paint labeled "camouflage".
Any ideas or suggestions?
