    Unhappy

    I bought 2 42W CFLs for my 10g terrarium. The color temp is 2700K and the lumens are 2,600 per 42W CFL. Will this be enough light for a ten gallon terrarium?
    Thanks,
    dewy

    That'll be plenty of light. I have roughly the same amount of light on my 10 gallons. By the way, are they daylight or warm white light? Daylight is the better of the two, but warm white light will do just fine.

    I think that should be OK for these. If for VFT , sure no good.
    Below list should be put at the middle of the tank because they need more light than the others.

    D. filiformis "Florida Giant" (cutting)

    Forgot to add, the filiformis 'California Sunset' is outside while the D.scorpioides died because of contaminated LFS. I am growing VFT seedlings under my old fluorescent grow light, but that is all.
