9 or 13 watt cfl's.. and a proper substrate(dirt/potting soil..capped).. i melted one hood with 25?w bulbs... Whoops... Woke up to the smell of burning plastic.. it was soft enough for me to leave a perma-fingerprint...

Spraypaint the inside of the hood white... Black plastic is never going to reflect light well.
