How close are the lights to the plant? That should be enough imo. However, the more lights you can get on that plant the better!

If the plant stays happy, I'm sure you'd get a little more than 10g. Pics would be nice though!

that looks like sufficient light, but you should definitely consider moving those lights to above the plant. leaves don't photosynthesize well from the side because light intensity is proportional to -Cos(theta) where theta is the angle of incidence. having your light striking the leaves at just a 45 degree angle is already 52% less effective than from straight on.

Just a side note: Perhaps a cheap oscillating fan pointed up towards the lights would help? The air would also be blown towards your plant if you angle the fan right and no I don't think it would stress it out if you keep it oscillating.

Just something for consideration:

A) Consider covering the closet floor with some platic
or
B) Get a water collecter

To prevent mold growth on the floor or wood rot....

Good luck and hope you get at least 10gs:thumbup:

I see you have those nice window fans have you tried putting one at the top of the closet door and making a filler piece to seal the rest of the way down from it?

This would pull air out the top making it far more efficient thermally. unless that door is open all the time?

About the reflector it would be good if you could rig something up it could even be as simple wood or cardboard painted white and hung in an upside down V over that rod. just make sure you have plenty of air moving to make sure it doesn't get to hot and flame up. That's a lot of lights in one little cluster.
