Greetings comrads! Can someone tell me the ideal distance a reflector should be from the wall when setting up lights? I'm thinking if it's too close to the wall I would lose some spread. Any suggestions?

Yes, how large is your room and what size and type of lights are you using?

Oh, I'm going to section off the room until I can get another 1000.

As long as you have good reflectivity(which I think that orca film does) and you center the lights within the grow space, it should be fine. I tried to set mine so that the light footprint is not too small when I pull the lights down to get them close(minimum distance to younger plants) to the plants. That way as the plants grow and I have to back them up to stay at minimum distance, I still get a good light coverage all the way out to the outside edge of the plants' growing space. :)
