That looks good CC. I'd think that should be a big help. My plants grow on a stone tiled balcony that gets very hot in the middle of Summer. Double potting is something that I would prefer but I don't simply because I don't want to draw any attention within my household that I am growing anything special. But I do as @CO Finest mentioned, use pea straw as a mulch layer which I feel really work great, and keeps the soil moist underneath and allows the worm in my soil to have a place to hang out, not to mention all the hundreds of little roots that grow into the area that without a mulch layer is pretty dead from it drying out. It works for me. Good luck.I live in a hot climate and im growing purple kush. I know this plant thrives in cooler conditions and all my plants are autos. Would the white marble around the pots help keep the roots cooler?
Hey whats up CO?Straw is a big help for heat and cold. A thick blanket of straw keeps the moisture in soil slowing evaporation big time. Do not make the mistake of using HEY. Hey does not allow the air flow like straw does. wrapping pots with white plastic or painting white will also help reflect heat. In really hot area like Yuma AZ we would build a 2x4 box bigger then the pot by a inch or two and paint it white and have the pot sit in the middle then have straw covering the top soil. You could dig a hole where the pot could sit below ground if you wanted to save money.
