Sheflerra lighting help

I've had HUGE Pothos in all of my Chameleons aviaries. But I could never see two of my chams. So I've swapped out those cages with Sheflerra.
The Pothos had almost no light requirement.
How will the Sheflerra do? I have just an 80 watt UVA, UVB and a 5.0 florescent on each aviary.
I can ad LED grow lights if I need to. I just don't want more lights and wires if I'm not going to need it.
(I already have the grow lights)

I could not keep mine alive with a dual T5HO and a halogen flood...

They are high light, almost as high as hibiscus. You are going to need a led grow light.

Easy mode is photos, Dracaena. and spider plants.

Mine are 19 watts.
24" wide each. I've "Siamesed"them together to make them about 50" total and I'll suspend them just on top of the two 24" wide main enclodures.
Itll be simple, as there is already a 48" LED light there. But that one is just a shop light.
I'm curious to see if they work out.

I've got my plant growing strip lights up.
Those little ones that screw into a standard light socket are good, too?

I like the sturdier branches of the Umbrella plant.
Hopefully my new plant lights will keep them alive.....Even if they don't thrive.

I believe those have the habit of dropping all their leaves and generating new ones that are meant for the new environment. So dropping leaves are fine, uneven browning/yellowing and stuff is bad.
Really?
I'll watch for that.
So far there is no change.
