    Default Noob, I need help with lighting for plants and lizards.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have a 29 gallon tank, I really want to make a nice display with plants and maybe some small species of day gecko or anoles.
    Im confused a bit about lighting. Will I need a plant light in addition to the UVB? Are there certain plants that will work better then others?
    I have pothos(these are bullet proof so will use some for sure) I also have a small chinese evergreen I was thinking of adding in. Any other ideas? I could combine with fake plants as long as they are high quality and look real.

    I was thinking of leaving the plants in small pots under the substrate rather then directly planting them so I can take them out and wash them off.
    Any ideas,pictures, or help would be appreciated.

    the UV bulb will be just fine for the plants, and pots are OK too. though I find most of my geckos leave their feces and urates down the side of the glass, making it very easy to clean, invariably there are a few that will pick a big leaf for their "spot". I plant mine directly in the substrate and find that about every two years or so they need to be refreshed/replaced, but it can vary.

    Sansevieria (snake plant) works exceptionally well. You can find it in short, medium, and tall.

    Plant it in a sandy soil and let it dry out between waterings.
