    I grow all of my plants under grow light bulb thingies. The main thing is just to have the plants close to the bulbs. I only use two bulbs , but that seems to be enough. You can even buy or make a nice wood cover that goes over the fixture to make it look better.

    I would use plant light bulbs. Make sure that on the package it says for growing plants and not for show casing them. Make sure that the plants are 8 inches away or less from the bulbs. Two bulbs should be enough.

    Will the 5gal tank get any natural light? If not, the 15watt single bulb aquarium hood will not be enough light.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
