Soo hey you guys it's me again with more questions
Soo I have a small indoor setup at the moment
Going to expand at some point
But I'm have 5 CFL bulbs going two red and 3 blue and approx 1500 lummens on each bulb
And I have about 15 sundew siting in a water tray underneath them on a 14-16 hour photosynthesis period
Trying to upgrade or see if this is enough for all these guys it seems to be geting about 85-90degrees and only 50-60 percent humidity
Trying to see if switching to LEDstrips or something els might be better any recommendations or tips and tricks of the trade
I'd REALLY appreciate it
Thanks again you guys
And here's a old photo of my setup

I'm a fan of LEDs myself. Are you open to a bit of DIY? You can actually assemble a custom LED strip fixture with no soldering required (or with, if you prefer.)
