    Plants will flower fine under just cool white and it looks better.

    Nepenthes will grow fine under cool white.

    I am no expert on lighting, but I use "cool white" or "daylight" bulbs for my few indoor plants. Seems to work well in my conditions.

    Me too! Cool white is the way to go. It's pretty cheap, too.
