Adaptive Plastics, Inc was first introduced to corrugated polyethylene in 1986 and began manufacturing fruit harvesting totes for growers. After experimenting with corrugated plastic and seeing how well tomato plants grew under the material, Mike and Bev Perry (CEO's) got the idea to use the panels to design a greenhouse kit. University testing verified that the flutes in the plastic diffuse the light and capture it from various angles – accelerating the growth of plants. From there, with their backgrounds in biology and plant science, they set out to design an affordable, strong, and practical greenhouse for home gardeners – the Solexx Greenhouse. The result was the finest-quality greenhousesin a mid-range price level on the market today. Solexx has been maufacturing greenhouses for over 18 years.
