It should work fine. I suggest using a compact fluorescent, they give off a wider spectrum of light. You will also get a more intense light from the same wattage.

If you are poor it will work. If you have a little money to spend, get a fluorescent bulb.

If you do use the night light be sure to place it inside the terrarium.
