Hey guys, so I’m having a few issues with my vivarium’s heating method. A few people have told me that I need to just use a heat mat under the substrate (~2inches soil/orchid bark) on the hot side, while others have said a ceramic lamp works best for Royals.
I currently have a 100watt lamp in a 3ft wooden vivarium, and I’ve found that it may be too warm, and not producing enough of a temperature gradient (hot:30, cool:25). What do you recommend?
