    I think he’s dying

    What do you mean by oil type bulbs? The only lights we have are what Tom and Mark were recommending. It’s just the UV light, the halogen (I think that’s the word), and a ceramic to emit heat when no light is needed. I thought we had the right lights now

    I will go to the nursery now to find the substrate and the terra cotta dishes. We have tried with the log hide, without the log hide, and now I added a pink Tupperware that I had handy for the moment.

    Are there links to these things that you recommend? I followed the care guide but the home improvement store didn’t have incandescent bulbs between 65-90w the smallest they had was 125w and I can’t figure out what kind of light fixture to get. They didn’t have any orchid bark, cypress mulch, or...
