Hello guys!

First of all I'm living in Iceland where is mostly no sun and this is my reason to grow vft indoors. I builded terrarium for them so i can keep temperature, humidity and light and it seems to work fine but i was thinking about to change something or get any tips from more experienced people. Its running from 7:00 to 22:00 every day, inside of it are 4x 15W Life-Glo T8 6700K 960 lm. Temperature is about 30 °C at day and 20 °C at night. Sometimes im also turning on humidifier.

I'm thinking of changing one of Life-Glo and replace it with Juwel T8 Colour-Lite 15W 11000K 310 lm that emphasises red and blue colours. Would it help them or change anything? Or should i leave it? Im waiting for yours tips and suggestions :roll:
