one good light for both uvb and plants?


New Member
I'm searching for one single bulb that would function for both the veiled chameleon's need for uvb rays, and also work for plants that require at least medium-high light. I don't currently have my cham yet, I'll be setting up the enclosure before I buy him.

Thanks in advance,

This isn't really an option. UVB lights need to be devoted to UVB - your future chameleon's life depends on it. Cham keeping is not the place for cutting corners, so you will need 3 separate bulbs (heat, UVB, plant light).

The best solution to this problem is to buy a (linear) dual light fixture and put one UVB bulb in and one plant bulb.

I have a T5 quad fixture from light your reptiles. 1 plant pro bulb, 1 uvb bulb, and 2 6500 daylight bulbs. This works wonderfully for my set up and Cham. I have a fukers adjustable lamp fixture for my heat bulb so I can adjust the amount of heat.
