Greetings. I purchased a 10-gallon terrarium to have a Cephalotus, Drosera prolifera, and a Pinguicula 'Pirouette'. The terrarium is 12 inches long and 6 inches wide.

What would be the best option for growlights for this? I'm having difficulty finding bulbs for this

100 watt equivalent daylight color LED in a round reflector might work. What are all 3 dimensions?
I have 2 10 gallon tanks side by side. Each is 20 x 10 x 12 tall. They sit on my living room floor.
I have two 2 tube T8-32 four feet long, fluorescent shoplights on top of the tanks.
But I have a very understanding wife.

Good growing,
Mike

If you are looking for a nice fixture that will stay cool, look nice in a office setup on that tank, I would recommend looking at freshwater LED fixtures from Current USA and finnex. I use them myself and have found that they were the best light sources for all kinds of plants .. VFTs, cephs, nepenthes, utrics, sphagnum etc. They might cost a bit more than the regular LEDs, but IMO if you are seeking for a clean setup, they are totally worth it.
