Shading over bulbs?
    #652744 - 12/25/12 07:39 PM (3 years, 11 months ago)

If I dont have a shade over my bulb, how much will this affect the penetrating power of the bulb? Obviously its not going to penetrate as much but is it significant?

My bulb is a 400w halide tube, growing 1 single plant. Plant is approx 5ft tall maybe a bit bigger.

Well first off, it's called a reflector.  And yes it makes a big difference.  You lose a lot of light that could be going to the plant.
