    Aaron have you read the sticky post at the top on Lighting? Swords put alot of great info in there also.

    Most people use a mix of coolwhite and warm white bulbs. You can also get daylight or sunshine bulbs. Don't bother with the fancy bluish growlights. They put out less light typically and are more expensive.

    I use 4 Sylvania Gro-Lux... so it's pretty bright... The plants seem to love it. They're growing like crazy... vft's, nep and sarracenia. Later, when they need to be replaced, I'll do like what Tony said... 2 cool, 2 warm. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Does the terrrarium get any natural light? and what kind of plants do you want to grow?

    If the plants are going to get some natural light from a window then you can probably get away with 2 tubes. If not then I would shoot for 4 tubes.
