    I'm just using the word "bulbs" in a vernacular sense - I've used fluorescents the entire time (short tubes like yours, then compacts, then big shop light tubes.) A friend of mine tried raising a D. capensis under an incandescent plant light and failed miserably - stay away from incandescents.

    Hmm not alot of light there but you would be hard pressed to fit more than a single fixture with 2 bulbs on a terrarium only 30cm deep. If the plants get some supplimental indirect light from a window that would help. Perhaps a couple 35w spiral compact fluorescent in some reflectors?

    The biggest problem is that my father always complains about the electricity bills...Cuz electricity os more expensive than in the US...MUCH MORE! To have a 18 watt cost me about a dollan a month...and i already have 2 40 watt and one 100 watt light bulb...

    Natural light would be great. Should be fine with a couple 18w and the sunlight from the window. Just need to watch that the terrarium doesn't bake like an oven!
