haha i know exactly where your coming from with the dogs XD
when i lived in Florida we had too large dogs that liked to get into, an destroy, anything they could get their paws, tails, or mouth at...heat was intense there too lol.
i dont think heat will be a problem to sarracenia though....remember their native range
So this is what I have done to try and get the plants closer to the light. Iv basically flipped over some Tupperware containers and then used some clean to-go containers as dishes for the pots.
Hopefully this will work a bit better for them.
My reasoning behind the sang as choice was based on the pitcher shape actually, how the pitcher seems 'full' in the bottom half, and then there the distinct change halfway up the pitcher where it narrows. That and the wings' 'cillia' remind me of my sang...
Good growing Josh

Ive made a few changes to the racks.
First, I got a second set of lights and now have two racks to grow on. Second, I have replaced the tubes in the lights with 6500k 3200 lumen 4 footers...this increases the lumens on each rack by 2050. Last, I put the second set of lights on the rack above the old one which is about 6 inches shorter and I have moved the plants to that rack...they are much closer to the lights now.
