One of the many wonderful things about these geckos is that they do not require any special type of lighting such as UVB. It is up to you whether you to use it or not, as the gecko will not suffer if you do not. If you are choosing to use live plants in the enclosure, a UVB light will be necessary. They require temperatures ranging from 72‐78, usually room temperature. If the enclosure is not staying within that range at night, you can add a low wattage nighttime heat bulb (25‐40wt). They can handle drops into the mid‐60s at night, but staying above 70 is best. Temperatures over 80 will cause the animal to become stressed and possibly even death.
