Hi,

I have a wall shelf with plants on it as pictured below. I have track lighting with PAR20 bulbs that is not directly above the plants but near it to the left (maybe 3 feet away or so). Will these lights damage my plants? If so, would you recommend I switch out the bulbs to something more plant friendly?

They won't damage, they won't even help them grow.
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)

I think they're too far away to make a meaningful contribution to the plant. When I grow plants on a shelf inside, the light is inches from the plant. Light intensity drops drastically as it gets farther away.
