    any recommendations for the best artificial lighting for vft? I want to have the option of using inside lighting when the weather is bad. I have 8 vfts in 5 inch pots.

    Check out the lighting thread in the terrarium forum for a very in depth discussion. Or, quick answer, buy a $10 shoplight at Home Depot (the kind that takes two 4' long T8 bulbs) and two cool white T8 bulbs to go with it.
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    what do you use as a reflector on the shop hood? I don't care much for tinfoil. Also can you go smaller than 4 ft lights?
