    Default Live plant lightiing

    I picked up my first crested yesterday and have for now just one live plant in with him, but plan on adding more. His habitat is remotely near a window however it doesnt receive much lighting at all. Also I am cheap and keep my house pretty cold in the winter months.

    I am thinking of getting a blue daylight bulb but dont really know about them I guess. First, will they provide the lighting my basic plants will need to survive? And also do they put out any real amount of heat, or are they mainly a viewing bulb of sorts?

    And lastly, is moving the habitat directly in front of a window a better idea (both for heat for the crestie and light for the plants) or is that very bad for the gecko?

    What I do is use low light plants and keep it by a window where it gets alot of indirect light from outside. My plants are doing fine.

    you could use a low K CFL like a 2500k 10-13 watt. The CFL puts out a small amount of heat too.
