    The desert/rainforest bulbs are only different in how much UVB they put out, which has little proven benefit for plants. I would fill the fixtures with standard fluorescent lights. Just make sure you do your research on lumens, Kelvin and CRI.

    Good Growing,

    If you would like to stick with exo-terra products, this looks like a great option:

    On the cheaper side, here are some adequate alternatives:

    Remember you will have to purchase four bulbs to fill the fixtures, so know your budget.

    Good Growing,

    As close as possible!
    If you are using four CFLs, 18 inches would be fine.
