    I have the exact same exo terra and have this over it

    Seems to work well enough. Packs a lot of Lumens for the price.

    I have the same exo-terra for my big nepenthes. I just put a glasses on the top, and add a tube 24inches T5 over all this. Work nicely.

    If you grow heli or another plant who need more light, you can add extra tubes.

    Sure







    I use a sunblaster tube 24inches 24watts with a nano crystal reflector. And all the new leaves are redish, so the plant have enough light. its a very easy setup !

    Ok
    For example, you cannot grow a nepenthes with a heliamphora, because if you provide enough light to your helis, your nep will burn. Thats why i need to know your plants. But you can always raise your heli near the top, by the time your neps are lower. You can down the T5s very close to the top glasse.

    But its a very general advise, others tf members will add more information!
