Hi martydallas, I don't see your photo attached... However, I can answer your question without it.
- Indirect light (at any intensity) is almost irrelevant when determining grow lighting requirements.
- Indoor growing with the TG requires the use of grow lights.
- Growing flowering / fruiting plants with an indoor TG is not recommended. This is mostly due to the complexity, cost and low return on investment.
- The recommended indoor TG grow light schedule for leafy greens and herbs is 14 hours On, 10 hours Off (off during the 24 hours period that will provide the greatest amount of total darkness).

Thank you very much for this reply. Still learning the system and trying to figure out how to attach photos to post. The photo in question is part of my homepage. I'm an attempt to attach it here as well.
Your response was very clear and I understand what you're saying, I think :-).
I have purchased some high intensity grow lights that potentially are designed for fruit. I will let you know over time how well it does or does not work.
Yes, they were not cheap :-) twice as much as the grow lights TG sells. The grow lights I purchased are LED and have a more red spectrum I believe 6 red and one blue light. I additionally purchased one that has more blue than red.
Certainly will, these are high powered LED lights specifically designed for growing indoors. Yes I do hope they work
Yes they look pink, a bunch of red lights and a few blue on one light the other light is a bunch of blue and a few red
