Hello i have a terrarium and it defenetly has munch ligth ,but when some days are rainy with not munch ligth i could use a plant lamp (or in winter). So i researched on the internet and so the best would be to buy sodium lamps. But there expensive and need a control gear. Wich lamp type do you think is the best? And it shouldn't be too expensive. My main focus is that the plants grow big and get nicely colored.
Hope you can help me.

What plants do you have in the terrarium?
What substrate?
How hot does it get?
How large is it?

O so i have nepenthes and a sundew but i put the plants with potts into it, so that i can replce them .The substrate is peat and spaghnum moss. Sometimes it can get up to 30 or even 40 degrees i mainly use it for my nepnthes because they have too less humidity in my room. The terrarium is 100-50-50 centimeters big, and i know it looks empty but will get more plants soon.Image
