    Ah... main problem... needs roughed-up plastic canvas laid on top of that sheet. It will not grow without it.

    Also, do you know that color of the bulb?

    Scratched up plastic never works. GHA cannot grow on it, because the long hairs of GHA will get pulled away by the flow. You must lay a sheet of very-roughed-up plastic canvas on top. I've seen this a hundred times.

    The 9w 6500k is about equal to 5w of 2700k. So if you can get a 2700k or "warm" globe, it will be much better. Or, even a single 3w 660nm (red) LED in the 120 degree (lambertian) style.
