My Terrarium Lights - Need Advise

krisiksFebruary 27, 2012

Hi there,

I have almost finish my terrarium this weekend and actually planning for the lights to be used, and i'm still making some research.

FYI: My terrarium is 4 1/2ft(L) x 1ft(W) x 2ft(H)

My question is, what light can I use? Will 2 fluorecent tubes (4ft each) 6,500K enough for my terrarium? How many watts to be used?

Thanks.

look for bulbs that have 40 watts, 80 watts should be enough for small moss and other plants like that. Keep the lights as close as possible
