need help reflecting light onto plants
I'm using grow lights for starting seedlings indoors.
Two of my grow lights are just flourescent lights attached into a shop light fixture. For seedlings do they have to be directly under the flourescent lights?
Will the seedlings that aren't direclty receiving the light still get adequate light (i.e. the ones that aren't directly under the flourescent light) or will they get too leggy?
I was thinking of using mylar/aluminum foil to reflect the light onto the plants; would the reflected light be too bright for the seedlings?
With the foil/mylar I'd be taping it onto the light fixture from behind, as well as the sides.
Would this adequately reflect the light or would I have to string it behind/between the lights?
If I have to string the foil/mlyar between the lights for it to adequately reflect the light, how would I go about doing this and what should it look like.
Pictures of what it should look like and how to string it between the lights (if I have to do it that way) would be appreciated. I am not a DYI person; I've tried looking for steps with how to string the foil/mylar between lights if I have to go that route via the internet but haven't really found anything.
