Fluorescent should work good. You dont need much light though. If your room has a window and you can see your cakes in the terrarium, then they have enough light.

For WEED growing UV rays really do increase potency (ex: mecury vapor HID lamps - protect the eyes however)

I have read nor heard anything that suggests that UV light will help 'shrooms. Hell, who knows..... if the UV light is bright enough it might kill some strains of bateria or even fungus.
