    If you have enough space for 4' fixtures I would use them instead. Even if they overhang the sides of the terrarium a bit. They are cheaper and easier to find and the light at the ends of the fixtures drops off alot so you can't put plants right out to the edge anyway.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    OH before I forget again.. Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this yet. If your plants are getting the majority of their light from artificial sources. Don't skimp on the lighting! Even if it means holding off on buying plants for a while. Get the best lighting you can afford for your setup. It will be well worth it in the end.

    I think it will be a bit of a challenge to get 3 on there with reflectors and all. But if you can make it work it sounds like a reasonable amount of light for your project.

    Where are you growing all those heli's on your grow list currently? What lights are you using for them now?
