Very last one.

Extra 40% shadenet covering the seedlings until there first leave change. The back wall is a double layer as well to protect against our harsh western afternoon sun.

In general people have shade houses with a perspex roof and netting on the side. I don't have any yet, so I put 50% shade cloth on top of pots. I let the rain water them in season, otherwise I move the pots inside the patio. It's awkward and inefficient.

Once the value of the plants is more than a new hothouse cost one soon realize that the hothouse becomes a must ;) :D

I totally agree. However, it's also a matter of space and needs of non-succulent plants in the garden.
