About Our Fluorescent Options:

Generic Plant Growth Bulb Agricultural Plant Growth T5HO Bulbs
Introduction
Lighting doesn't need to cost a fortune, and high-output LEDs aren't always necessary. When it comes to keeping projects budget-friendly, working with fluorescent bulbs is often a great way to go. We carry a handful of CFL & T5HO fluorescent options for those looking to build a live vivarium on a budget. These inexpensive options are pretty old-school at this point, but they work great with costs considered. Below we'll get into the pros & cons of the fluorescent options we carry.
The "Pros" of fluorescent lighting
The lumen output (visual brightness) of fluorescent lights sometimes meets or exceeds the LEDs they compete with! For humans looking at the enclosure, it will be (just about) as bright as any competing LED option. If your inhabitant species benefits from temperatures higher than your room temperature, fluorescent bulbs are an especially good choice for daytime warmth. Some enthusiasts use CFLs during winter for added heat & LEDs in warmer months. CFL bulbs can easily be upgraded to Jungle Dawn or Value Grow LEDs using the same fixture down the road, if you ever decide to go that route! The best part about fluorescent bulbs is the price. A 13W LED might run you $25-29, while the competing 23W plant growth CFL (below) only costs $5.49! (That's about 80% cheaper per bulb!)
The "Cons" of fluorescent lighting
Fluorescent options typically have lower PAR output, higher heat output, greater energy consumption, and a shorter useful lifespan when compared to our LED options. While fluorescent bulbs are very bright visually (lumens), the amount of measurable PAR light (what grows plants) is typically lower then the competing LED. The lower PAR output will make growing certain "high light" plants (moss, bromeliads, certain orchids, etc) a little more difficult. After 8-18 months of use, the PAR light output of fluorescent lights will have degraded considerably, and will require replacement to keep output in the acceptable range. Many people will upgrade to LEDs at that time, or simply purchase new fluorescent bulbs & continue on. The yearly replacement cost isn't much though, considering the cost difference per bulb. A 5-year supply of CFLs can be had for the cost of about one LED!
A quick word about UVB
Certain animals require UVB light to naturally process vitamin D3, but the actual environments we build (i.e. plants) do not require UVB light to thrive. Plants require PAR light (photosynthetically active radiation), which is measured between 400-720nm, while UVB light is measured between 290-320nm. If the inhabitant species you care for will benefit from UVB lighting, you should offer a UVB basking spot. If the animal(s) you are working with don't require or benefit from light in the UVB spectrum, your environment won't require it either. The UVB light you choose will depend on your animal species.
The verdict
Fluorescent bulbs are a perfectly good choice for first-time builders, anyone working with warmth-loving species, and for anyone building on a budget. If you aren't sure, you can always start with CFLs for a very low investment and upgrade to LEDs later if you'd like. Each of the horizontal fixtures below will work great with CFLs, Value Grow, and Jungle Dawn LEDs! :-)

Plant Growth Compact Fluorescent Bulbs

Inexpensive generic bulbs appropriate for illuminating a vivarium or small grow area

Generic Plant Growth Bulb
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
These super inexpensive bulbs are perfect for growing basic plants in smaller vivariums & terrariums, and can be used in just about any common fixture with an appropriate wattage rating. We use these on a few of our vivariums where a little extra heat won't be a concern for the inhabitants, and where the plants included will be fairly basic. Depending on the brand available to us at the time, color temp ranges from 5000K-6400K, which falls within the ideal recommended spectrum for viewing & plant growth. Available in 13W for enclosures 13" & shorter, 18W for enclosures 13-18" high, 23W for enclosures up to 24" high, and 32W for horticultural or custom applications. The 13W, 18W, and 23W models fit all sizes of Exo Terra Compact Tops and Zoo Med Hoods. The 32W CFL must be used in a suspended deep dome fixture due to it's size & considerable heat output. Please visit our Vivarium Lighting Kits page to see which CFLs we'd recommend for your specific enclosure. (You'll get a discount on the CFLs and fixture that way, too!)

Plant Growth T5HO Bulbs

The same horticultural T5HOs we use to grow plants at NEHERP

Agricultural Plant Growth T5HO Bulbs
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description
Our T5HO tubes offer plenty of output at a great price. These are from the same horticultural brand of T5HOs we use in our grow rooms at NEHERP, and you can see a bunch of them in action in our Grow Room Gallery. These are rated for 6400k color temperature, and their full spectrum light output ensures a naturally-realistic appearance. These are compatible with both of the Jumpstart T5HO fixtures we carry, as well as other brands of 24in & 48in fixtures on the market. If you've bought plants from NEHERP, you might have already seen what these bulbs can do! :-) T5HOs are rated in nominal length, with actual dimensions listed below the add to cart button.
Shipping Info For 48in Size
Due to the ever-raising prices at FedEx & USPS, the longer models are now getting whacked with a pretty big "oversize shipping fee". We sincerely apologize for the shipping cost (especially if you aren't local) on the longer bulbs, but our hands are tied for the moment. On the bright side, the dimensional weight the shippers follow allows us to ship up to 80 bulbs at the same price! If you are only looking for 1-2 bulbs and live far enough away to make shipping costs especially high, it may be worth visiting a local hydroponics shop for the 48in models. :-) Thankfully the 24in bulbs are well under the size cut-off for the fee, so shipping remains reasonable. :-)

Zoo Med ReptiSun UVB Compact Fluorescent Bulbs

The #1 Fluorescent UVB Reptile Lamp

Zoo Med Reptisun UVB CFLs
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Price & Description ▾

Why we recommend Zoo Med UVB Bulbs

Zoo Med or Exo Terra UVB CFL

Zoo Med sets the standard for Reptile UVB lighting, and their user reviews are sky-high by comparison to a few other mainstream brands. Our recommendation goes a step further than that, though. While no manufacturer seems to print color temperature on their product packaging, Zoo Med's bulbs appear closer to the recommended 5000-6500K color temperature range than other brands. (Seen in the photo above) An appropriate color temperature like this one plays a big part in how naturally accurate a live vivarium will appear to the human eye. It's just an aesthetic observation, but that's important when we're working with a beautiful living environment. While many brands of UVB light will work, Zoo Med's bulbs will work and produce naturally accurate light for a live vivarium. :-)

Back To Product Description
NEHERP Staff Note About UVB:
Ultraviolet B light is a type of radiation which assists many species in the natural creation of vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 assists in strengthening bones, metabolizing calcium, and helps prevent certain problems associated with keeping reptiles in captivity. Not all Reptile species will require a UVB light, so it's important to do your research before selecting a UVB light source. It's important to note that UVB light is not necessary for plant growth or health, and should be provided only if the animal species will benefit from it! For the best information regarding your specific animal species and it's potential for requiring UVB light, we recommend Googling "(Your Species) + UVB Requirements".
NEHERP Staff Description:
Zoo Med sets the standard in herp-hobby UVB producing bulbs. A few hobbyist-driven UVB comparisons showed Zoo Med's UVB products outperformed other major brand names for UVB output, and we're big fans of the ReptiSun line at NEHERP. On a visual (not related to UVB) note,the "cool" color temperature of Zoo Med's UVB Bulbs appears to fall somewhere between our recommended range of 5000-6700K, while other brands look far more yellow (less natural) for a live vivarium environment. Rated for 5% UVB output, and 30% UVA output. If you are looking for an application-specific recommendation for your live vivarium enclosure (and a discount!), you might want to check out our Supplemental UVB Kits which are listed on our Kit Extras pages.
Why We Recommend Zoo Med View Fixture Choice Advice Hide Fixture Choice Advice
Selecting A Fixture:
For most bioactive live vivariums, a UVB light source is added as a supplement to the lighting used to illuminate the enclosure. Everything in this paragraph assumes you'll be using one of our Vivarium Lighting Kits or recommended alternatives! If your enclosure is 12-13in deep (front to back), we'd recommend using a simple 12in terrarium hood. Enclosures of these dimensions are too shallow to fit a deep dome fixture along with an appropriate vivarium lighting solution. Exo Terra and Zoo Med both have great options, and we recommend matching the fixture to your enclosure when possible. Aquariums can use either fixture brand, but Zoo Med's is thinner & easier to fit! Both Zoo Med and Exo Terra enclosures are designed to fit two of their corresponding fixtures on top, so it'll look nice and perform well! Enclosures which are 18in or deeper (front to back) can utilize a simple Deep Dome Fixture which will reflect the optimum amount of light into the enclosure while keeping costs as low as possible. For other applications, don't hesitate to reach out via email for advice! For almost all enclosures, we typically add the UVB-containing fixture towards the background where the animal is most likely to bask. Placing your plant-growth lights towards the front will also encourage plants to grow towards the viewer, which looks great once things mature.

The Exo Terra Compact Top Canopy is a compact fluorescent terrarium canopy designed for use with Exo Terra Glass Terrariums, but can be used for a wide variety of enclosures. This easy-to-install canopy accommodates compact fluorescent bulbs, LEDs, and even low wattage incandescent bulbs. Optional accessories like Exo Terra's Digital Thermometer & Hygrometer can be slid into the special sliding rim on the top of the canopy for a great finished look. Hoods 12" smaller have 1 on/off light switch, and larger hoods have 2. Max CFL bulb wattage: 26W. Max incandescent bulb wattage: 25W.
Fitment Information
The versatility of these fixtures is part of why we like them so much. Every Exo Terra Natural CFL, UVB CFL, and Plant Growth CFL (up to 26W) we carry will fit into every Exo Terra Compact Top. When it comes to LEDs, every one of our Jungle Dawn & Value Grow horizontal LEDs (under 7.5in) will fit, too! Never mix CFL bulbs and LEDs in a single fixture, since doing so will cause the LED(s) to overheat.

Zoo Med Terrarium Hoods

High quality hoods for screw-in CFLs, LEDs, or incandescent bulbs!

Zoo Med Naturalistic Terrarium Hood
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
Zoo Med's terrarium hoods are made from a durable glossy black plastic which is thicker than most alternatives. Thanks to the heavier-duty components, these are the only horizontal hoods we carry which can support incandescent bulbs (up to 60W)! Their relatively thin footprint (front to back) makes them extremely useful for a variety of enclosure types & sizes, although they were specifically designed to fit perfectly on Zoo Med's Naturalistic Terrariums. The 12in models have one socket & one switch. The 18in models have two sockets & two switches. Both use a single plug.
Fitment Information:
These fixtures can support incandescent bulbs up to 60W and CFLs up to 26W with ease. The 12in model fits all Jungle Dawn & Value Grow Horizontal LEDs we carry up to 7.5in. If you'd like to use LEDs on the 18in model, it's important to use one (short) 9W Jungle Dawn in the shorter-socket, since the longer Jungle Dawn & Value Grow LEDs won't fit due to the hood's offset-socket setup. The larger side can fit the longer (up to 7.5in) LEDs without issue. If you'll be using an incandescent bulb & a CFL together in an 18in fixture, it's important to note that only Zoo Med's Reptisun LEDs are the only ones in our lineup marketed for that purpose. Never mix LEDs with Incandescent or CFL bulbs in a single fixture since doing so will cause the LED to overheat.
