I also looked at the "double bright" LED fixture. But this has no timer on it it would be a pain to set it to lunar every night. I thought about getting that and then adding a secondary light source for the night lighting but the cost is almost as much as the plant-capable led system with a timer on it. I'm pretty sure that has a lunar mode as well.

Window screen isn't a bad idea. I have tons of sun shade screen that cuts 80% of light out could place it over every 2nd or 3rd led
