    Narrow enough to catch all the light. And any way to wrap up or seal the open slot is fine; does not have to be adhesive tape.

    It's just a way of getting the light intensity higher across the screen, without getting a bigger reflector for the lamp. But it might just fill in by itself as nutrients come down.

    Well you could cut the screen vertically in half, and tape of the rest of the slot. This will concentrate the growth in front of the light, and increase flow too.
