It' the middle of winter. The sun is low. I have some tiny VFTs in a pot that's a little too deep in the pot for them to get full sun exposure (they're in a south facing window). Some of their leaves get a bit of sun.
So here is my strategy. I've made little reflectors out of tinfoil and toothpicks. These reflect the sun back onto the plant. My worry is that the plant receives double sun exposure on a couple of leaves. With reflections coming off the surface of any standing water, would these plants not get a similar amount of light in the wild?
Since they are skipping dormancy, I'd like to get them as much "food" as possible.
Is this "over-parenting"?
Thanks in advance!
PS. I also have 3 X 40W CFL on them for 14+ hours a day. They drop down to 2-3" above them once daylight is gone. During daylight, the lighting is raised just enough for all sunbeams to get through.
