    i was wondering if you could keep the lights on for 24 hours or more? would that be bad for your plants?

    The only thing you can do is experiment with one and see how it goes with the plant. I know with sarrs you can leave the lights on, but the rest, I don't know.

    I know that at night the plants open their stomata and take in air and stuff. But, I would assume that eventually, if they're given 24 hours of light all the time, they would tire out because of all the photo-synthesizing.

    Spot on Ben. Most plants need a rest period from photosynthesizing for gas exchange.

    I don't know about the Droseras, but I've had 3 N. rafflesiana, 1 N. x 'Judith Finn' growing under 24hr light for a year in my office at work. They seem to love it, and are growing fairly quickly.
