yes, put it anywhere. rest the flourescent light on top of your terrarium if all else fails. a light higher in the blue spectrum will do the best job, flourescent aquarium lights usually have a diagram of their spectrum intensity on the box.

I use a flourescent, it is a blue spectrum flourescent light. My "botonist" friend said it would work good, does well for his "plants". And he is right, it works great!!

In reply to:

doesn't matter, the only problem would be if the light was too hot and too close to the fruits... although, flourescent lights generally are not a problem.
