I really like how that looks.

I am curious how you measured light levels. With a lath structure the light intensity should be like a zebra's stripes, full sun and shade with an average giving you the total light value.

Incidentally, I may have found a used small greenhouse locally. I plan to check it out soon and see if it will work for me.

Looks Great Coconuts,

While the lath house's can greatly improve ambient humidity levels in So.California most of the year, it unfortunately cannot stand up to the bone dry winds of the Santa Ana winds. Even just a couple days can desiccate an entire collection that is not meticulously tended.

I do miss growing in humid environments, makes many things so much easier.

A sprinkler system is really easy to set up so one can take a vacation. There are battery-powered timers that fit on a hose connection, or putting the controller on the house where it is sheltered (and can get power) and a wire to the valve is easy too.
