  1. anyone know where to get, or how to make a parabolic lamp cover.

    we've got the fixtures for some cfl's but want to concentrate the light a bit more onto the plants.

    buying all new lamps would suck. so can i just buy or make these reflective covers?

    our "box" is big so directing the light would help us out a bit.
  2. nevermind...i got it.
  3. Were you referring to a mini reflector to attach to your CFLs? How did you go about making one?

    An easy way to make reflectors for CFLs is to cut a pop can in half and cut 2 slits on one end to make tabs so you can wrap it around the bulb.
  4. i didn't make one yet...before i posted i was typing the wrong thing into google. i was calling it a reflective lamp

    i just started finding some info...although your idea is certainly the most cost effective...even though we don't drink pop...i can spare a few bucks and get a few cans!!

  5. No problem !

    I don't drink pop either.... Beer cans work too. ;)
  6. beer either! i'm a pregnant and nursing mommy.

    pop will suffice.
