They have had a double layer of plastic but as you can see its very ratty. And a white sheet on top of the plastic most nights. I try to give six hours of darkness then there is a small grow light 100 watts or less I think. I dont know exactly. But the bale itself is probably a comfortable 70 degrees in the middle. Not hot any more, but not cold either. So far its working. Although... the height has dropped by a full foot since I placed it there in December. I sort of anticipated this, but if it sinks any farther the roots won't line up with the surrounding soil anymore. But thats ok. Because a foot of good clean dirt could be used to cover the sunken area. I have not leveled the patch yet but will soon. And then... only you guys will know its a 'buried hay bale patch'. It will look normal.
