Default Re: "Marginal" Protection

I didn't have the same protection on the citrus with the minis, but the tree crown is more open than a P-stem. That's why I was leaning toward the 'wrap' type of lights. If the minis aren't burning the stem, then an overwrap of polypropylene might work to insulate the bulbs heat from being blown away with the slightest breeze and work better than an underwrap.

Thanks for the ideas!

P.s. The led's are very cool (in temperature) and would not offer much if any protection.
