I have some more nepenthes on the way, and was planning on using an identical fixture and setting up a grow rack further into the room (5-6 feet) but was cautioned by another grower that these bulbs wouldn’t be powerful enough! This was a disappointment to me as I had another identical fixture around that I used previously for starting seeds. I thought it would be the perfect spot, my fan circulates air right above where the plants would be growing, and it gets hit with a bit of morning sun as well (not nearly as much as the windowsill). I’m trying to save some money right now and knew I needed to locate a rack, but was not prepared for learning that my lighting would be sub par!
I want the best for my plants and wanted to know what others experiences with t8s have been. I’ve found them to be very cool lights as well, and they don’t produce much heat. Any experience or advice in the world of fluorescents is greatly appreciated, and happy growing!
