Thanks for the thoughts. I tried searching for "Sunblaster fixtures", "t5 12" fixture", "t5 fixture", and a few others, but could not come up with much in Google. Could you possibly tell me where I might find these?
I will go with a 12" hood if I need to, but aesthetics is important and that's just not going to appear properly 'fitted' with 2" of space on each side. I assume no one makes a runner strip with the right color temperature or lumens? Does anyone know where I can find just the ballast; then I could build the lighting into the terrarium?
I'm not sure I've narrowed much down or decided on much, but I like these options:What species have you narrowed in on? That would help with your lighting choice.
Sarr - Scarlette Bell
Sarr - Undecided
I would be planting these in 4" pots and burying the pots in the medium. They could then be removed whole for dormancy as needed. Though I have a feeling the Sarrs will require a larger pot as they grow.
