It will be interesting to see if it makes much difference.
I'll be using it for the first time with the Grower's Choice Wedding cake/Gelato.
Super excited

Just make sure that it's ok to use your reflector with UVB.
I've seen that plastic won't reflect it and you should use aluminium/metal reflector.
I've seen this mentioned on a few YouTube videos I've been watching.
Worth checking mate

I was thinking more along lines of one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Arcadia-Pro- ... SwspZfLBH7 @£60`ish and 870mm long if its cheaper, but looking for summink around that size myself, i suppose i could get a 2ft`er @ £50`ish as said if cheaper than singles bought by our very own @Mr Nice
