just a note, i remember purchasing filters for far-red.  perhaps you could
construct a tube or something that would transmit the light into the box,
but distance the bulbs to allow some cooling.  perhaps a tube lined with
reflective surface interior, such as mylar, but that might screw up your
spectrum.  sorry nothing concrete, just thinking out loud and trying to
good luck, an interesting phenomenon
