Light schedule for Java fern????
My son planted a Java fern in his 1 or 1.5 g. unheated fish bowl (see photo). He has a small lamp that can have up to a 60 w. bulb in it next to the bowl. As you can see in the photo, there is a south facing window in the room too.
Is this lamp sufficient light for the java fern? If so, how many hours should it be on during the day? OR is no supplemental light required?
Is a 60 w. equivalent CF bulb good for this plant? OR would a different light be a lot better?
