I have a couple 225 LED lights which pull about 45 Watts AC, covering about one square foot at a height of 6 inches.
I also have some 48 inch T8 LED (fluorescent replacement) 2 tube fixtures, using 44 Watts AC total, covering 1 foot by 4 foot at a height of 6 inches.
I match the local sunrise/sunset times for photoperiod control, using a Raspberry Pi.
Works well enough for me, colors up my Drosera adequately.
