    Try to get at least 1,500 lumens in your terrarium for healthy plants. Also, 6,500K works a little bit better for me.

    Well if this one is good, tell me, but to mix it w other bulb, cool white or warm white? or daylight? or superdaylight?, i must say, 2,700K?, 4,100K?, 6,500K? or 10,000K?.

    most would say that 6,500K is closer to daylight color temps so I would suggest going with this first. But everyone has they're own opinions on bulbs and color temps

    Cool white and daylight works fine, just make sure the spectrum doesn't go above 7,500K or below 2,700K as the plants can use less of the light.
