Use BLUE-X Grapevine Shelters to create a beneficial microclimate for each grapevine. The increased humidity and carbon dioxide levels in the growtubes accelerate plant growth and enhance vine survival.
BLUE-X Grapevine Shelters come in 30″ height which we find ideal for new muscadine plantings. All Grapevine Shelters are 3.5 inches (9 cm.) in diameter.
BLUE-X Grapevine Shelters, a partially post consumer recycled product, are fabricated from a transparent blue tinted polyester film (PET), (PART-A). This blue film admits up to 100% more photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) than opaque polpropylene. PAR is the part of the light spectrum most used by plants.
Use BLUE-X to increase the diameter of your vines! We offer the only shelter on the market today that takes advantage of beneficial blue light!
