    Above my tanks, I have two cool white tubes and two EcoLux tubes, in two normal four-foot shop light fixtures. I assume that would work well also? Give 'em a bit of everything?

    I found a Pinguicula 'Pirouette' online for a very good price. Can someone please give me the basics of it? When I should I order it? When does it come out of succulent stage?

    Btw, I have a pot full of Mexican butterwort soil (vercumlite, perlite, etc). Can I sprinkle some peat on top so I can encourage moss to grow?

    Sure, but with the correct conditions moss usually sprouts and grows wherever it prefers, just like a weed.

    Nice pings Alex! I wish I had that much color on mine!

    If I am going to keep mexi Pings (P. agnata, P. emarginata, and P. 'Titan') under lights, can I use soft white CFLs (they seem to give off too much light in the orange/yellow part of the spectrum and too little in white/blue)? How many lumens do I need (I know that P. emarginata is more shade tolerant than the other 2)? Thanks!
