Since the T5HO fixture is 12" wide, I am hoping that the top of the fixture will sheild the plants directly under it from the light emitting from the T8 fixture, though I suspect that there will still be a bit of light reaching the plants under the T5 fixture. Is this ok? Or will the inderect light still make the tuberous sundew tricked into thinking it is summer.
I have a picture that is the best I could take. Hopefully it helps represent the light currently spilling over. The photoperiod is currently 16 hours on it. All help in deciding whether it would be acceptable to grow tuberous sundews under a smaller fixture below and next to the current one is welcome
Edit: I realized that I forgot to mention that the fixture would (ideally) be to the left of the tank, probably about a foot below the current fixture.
