    If you'd really like some blue try marine aquarium actinics in the mix.

    I would say that your wattage is too low. Lowest I use is 20watt bulbs. You need good wattage to be successful.

    Generally speaking, actinic blue light doesn't help a plant very much. If you can find 4 25 watt 6500K bulbs, they will be enough for 1 ten gallon terrarium.

    6,500K is good for cp. I would get atleast 200 watts total in your 30gal. tank.
