    40cm from the top of the pot to the lights? Sounds a bit far if you are using standard T8 tubes. I would also use as many as you can fit over the grow chamber if you go with the T8 tubes.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    oké.Thanks guys. I will certainly take tubes. The only problem here in Belguim is that there are no specifications on the lamps. They only say how many watt's they are. I will take a mix of cool whites and Gro-lux. There are already 2 lamps in the tank 1 36 watt grolux and 1 36 watt cool white. These are both 120 cm.

    You can tell the different tubes apart by their diameter; the T#s are in eighths of an inch. For metric, multiply by 3.175 and you get millimeters. So a T12 bulb is 1.5 inches or 38.1 millimeters thick; a T8 bulb is an inch or 25.4mm; T5 would then be 5/8" or 15.875mm.

    So,the light's are now in place. There are two 120cm cool white's and two Gro luxes who are also 120 cm. Al the lamps are 36 watt's. Will this do? The whole terrarium is surrounded by a highly reflective material,except the front.
