So I got a 36x18x24 terrarium and plan to have a 110 watt 10000 lumen 6400k light about 15 inches away from the plants in it. Ill have some tropical sundews, highland nepenthes, pinguiculas, and some VFTs anf sarracenia. the VFT and Sarracenia are only in the from after valentines to thanksgiving after that they go in dormancy.
But anyway, ive asked this before and people have said many different things. Ive heard the light is overkill, its not nearly enough, its the wrong color temp etc. So could someone tell me if its enough or too much or too little.
Even if the light is fine. I was looking at some different ones that I would me getting in a year. So the light mentioned above is temperary. It would be 2 CFL fixtures each CFL is 105 watts, 6300 lumens, 6400k. They are each a 400 watt equivelant so I was wondering if the CFLs would fry my plants.
Thanks everyone! i know light questions come up a lot but I can never find consistant info. Thanks
