It depends if the one lamp can maintain a warm enough temperature throughout the enclosure. Generally, the longer an enclosure is wide, more lamps are needed. It’s a good idea to have both the thermostat that controls the duration the lamp is on but also a separate thermometer so you can gauge the temperature. I’d recommend hanging a thermometer probe as far away from the lamp as you can so as to give you a look at what temperature the coldest part of the enclosure is at. Hopefully that answers your question lol I feel like I was rambling
