In your user profile you can enter your location...knowing your location helps people to give you advice. I'm a newbie and haven't used lighting (just sunlight) so you can quickly discard my advice if you wish. The light you're looking at has long, narrow light strips...I think you would be better served by a more square-type of a panel so as to have a better light pattern falling onto the plants. The Yescom 225 that @Panman, recommended is a popular one (if they are available in your country). Otherwise a panel of equal or better performance would be a better choice than one of the strip, gooseneck type of lights. That's just my opinion, though, FWIW. If you could position the plants in front of a bright window and also use the lights, that would help matters. Best wishes.
Sorry for the missing information
I live in costa rica, tropical Wheater country. basically, we only have two seasons sunny and rainy, 5-6months of spring/summer or what we called here sunny days (December to May) and then rain comes, starting around june until November-middle December. As overall we do not have winter and all year round it is warm 80-90 F. but sometimes on the rainy season days can be 65F as lowest.
I found that Yescom225 are pretty good for carnivorous plants, seems to be that there is a bunch of CP growers that had been using the yescom225 white leds to be specific and their comments are wonderful about how these lights helped them to grow very well their plants.
Based on my research and the help of you guys, it seems that I need to improve my set up and move from a simply small desk to a plant shelf where I can hang the Yescom225.
Thats why I wanted to find some gooseneck with clamp good light to avoid changing my desk since I have no place where I can hang a lamp above my desk. But now as I said, it will be better to improve my set up a little bit onto a shelf where I can hang the lamp as well
