In the morning, 48 degrees outside. Inside this hoop we have a 175 Watt Infared heat lamp hung above at 36” with a large aluminum reflector (used in photography and film) like a chick brooder. The probe on top of the soil in front of the plant is the centre of the heat area under the lamp and is nicely at 81 degrees and the ambient air temperature inside the hoop is at 62 degrees.

I always turn the heat lamps off in morning and open both ends of my hoops, no matter what the weather and eliminate the chance of an oopsie while I’m out golfing. When we no longer need the heat lamps, I swap them out for small fans until the hoops come off and they are freestyle’n it.
