Hi! Im Quinton, and I'm addicted to CPs....
Question about lighting for sarracenia seedlings.
I know everyones probably sick of seeing posts about lighting, but I just want to cover the bases on my lighting system I set up for some sarracenia seedlings.
It is a 4 tube T8 fixture:
2 daylight tubes, 32 watt, 2700 lumens each, 78 CRI,
2 cool white tubes, 32 watt, 2995 lumens each, 86 CRI
11,390 lumens total
I wrapped it in tin foil to maximize the light.
I know that it is recommened that you have at least 12,000 lumens with 90-100 CRI, but this was the best I could do.
If this light system meets the right qualifications, what other CP's would you suggest that could grow under this light system.
That should be fine for seedlings, I start mine indoors under four daylight T8 tubes in shoplights, no special reflectors or anything else and they have done well. Should be suitable for starting seedlings of any of the popular genera, for older plants I would step it up to 6 tubes.
