I know people use mylar, and there is also (very expensive) purpose-made reflective material for growlights.
I used mylar for my terrarium way back when. Nice clean look to the tank overall.
"Be quiet! The plants will hear y... noooooo!" 'chomp - burp!'
Thanks guys, I ordered some Mylar today with mylar tape from amazon. I'll take the cover off of the mini greenhouse and completely fill the inside of it with a layer of mylar. I hope it works
So after about a month of trying to use the growlight/mini greenhouse I decided to abandon the setup and concluded it a failure. Even after I put mylar all around the inside the plants still looked very unhealthy. They are now growing outside on my patio getting about 4 to 4.5 hours of direct sunlight a day. Although it's not much, this is all I can give them for now. Sadly, I lost 5 plants by trying out the mini greenhouse setup. I lost them to root rot(possibly a viral infection) and botrytis.Even after installing a fan and applying physan20 periodically, it was not enough to stop the infections. I lost two vfts =red piranha and big mouth, drosera intermedia, judith hindle sarracenia, and a $40 sarracenia hurricane creek white. I feel pretty discouraged right now and am just glad the rest of my plants are doing fine now and showing good improvement in growth and color. It just sucks that I will have to replace all the plants I lost.
