I didn't want to continue hijacking the transaction thread for ElaineO. So here is my light setup.

The grow rack on the light has flourescent and led lights. Each shelf has 2 40 watt flourescent grow lights and 2 40 watt equivalent led tubes. The grow tent has 2 Yescom 225 white and blue led panels. The neps are under shop lights. They are standard white and 4000 lumens.

Interesting that you use shop LEDs. I know someone who uses them for growing cacti. But I read that they weren't bright enough for CPs. :? :?:

They wouldn't be for my other plants but they seem to be fine for the neps. Plus, my goal is just to get them through the winter there. Come spring, they will end up back outside in partial shade.

I didn’t see it until now. It appears to be attached by a magnet. I wonder what he uses it for.

This is what I noticed:

They are carnivorous plants, after all. You never know when one of them will get out of control.
