So I went to the crafts store today and bought some plastic mesh. Problem was that there were two types of mesh
7 count and 14 count. I wasn't quite sure which one to get and the 14 count was wrapped in plastic with cardboard, so I bought one of both.
I know a lot of the DIYs call for the 7 count mesh, but I was hoping if anyone had any experience with the 14 count one. The 14 count mesh seems a little less see-through... which is ideal. Apparently the number is the number of holes per inch... so the 14 count one has way more holes, but they're really tiny. I'm a little worried that water will have a hard time circulating through it.
Here's what the 14 count "perforated plastic" looks like.
And here's the regular old type 7
