Led lighting for Highland and intermediate nepenthes

by Jin » Tue Aug 06, 2019 1:30 am

I live in Iowa so I can accurately say that winters suck here. I want to be prepared before I have to worry about that and get a sufficient grow light for my neps. I have one intermediate (Maxima x Vogelii) and two highland (inermis x bongso) and a papau New Guinea clone. I would prefer to get an led grow light over any other type just bc of energy efficiency and I have read that there is less of a chance of leaf burn. I don’t think I need it to be very wide because I would just need it to be able to cover a long shelf.

Also, I would be putting this above (or attached) to a long windowsill or shelf in my living room. I know most disclaimers say not to look at the lights but I have a toddler. Do you think a higher wattage light will work or would I have to make a lower wattage one work??

Thanks in advance, I appreciate any advice I can get.
