Since the camera was out to show the 2-day old greenhouse pumpkin, here is an overview of how the patch looks in general. In this image the greenhouse has a 30% shade cloth put on to it and the outdoor plant has 60% Aluminet shade fabric put around it. However, this material is not for shade but to help reduce aphid pressure on the outdoor plant since the reflected sunlight makes the plants interpret this as the actual sun which they will naturally want to fly away from which is why they are typically found on the underside of the leaves (at least initially).
