Reflective Lighting

I am going to put a cover over my RDWC setup so its easier to clean up. It will just be a sheet of wood/plastic with some holes in it for the plants to grow through but keep the leaves from falling into hard to reach areas they seem to congregate. I am wondering if painting it white or using a sheet of white Formica would bounce some of the light back up and if that is a good thing or not?

      • Works for me, Bro!!

        Same idea, different reasons. I used plywood and panda film.

        • Cool. Good point, I did that on my Ebb & Flow too. I wonder it using the solar blankets would be good or bad?

              • All my walls are painted with flat white paint, so why not the floor and covers too! I say go for it.

                • Thanks, mine are all white too. The problem I have is cleaning up hard to reach areas where the leaves all and get under the plumbing. I may need to do this in sections just in case I have a leak someplace.
