    What would be the best lights to put on a 10 gal terrarium? It will be for hardy lowland/warm/tropical sundews and neps. Any help would be appreciated.

    I was using 2 Hagen Aqua-glo lights because it was left over from the fish tanks I took down.
    I replace the bulbs every year 1 in Jan, the other June. I replaced the 1 with a cool white, the other when it's time will be a Gro-Lux from Sylvania. This is what was suggested to me to use from a grower of CP's for over 22 years.

    With 10 gallon, one shoplight will fight over two end-to-end. With the 40 watt bulbs, any will work. Depending on your heating, you might want to use warm white or a combo with cool white. You can try grolux, if you want, but I have not noticed any difference as far as plant color on most.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Does it matter what brand of cool white I get?
    I already have a Bright Stick "grow and show" from GE, but it seems to be too warm for my plants as, some of them are looking dry and brown on the leaves, and the new growth is green, for a little while before turning brown also.
