A mixture of 3000k and 6500k bulbs. Using my trusty lux meter I have measured the darkest areas at 18k lux and the brightest at 78k lux when the sun is shining and 35k when it is not. The plants seem to like it and color up well, but my electricity bill more than doubles in the winter.
    Correct. that is a jade plant, and the vine like one might be a Rhipsalis sp, but ill have to double check. i want sure what it was myself

    Outside year round. In the winter, a mini greenhouse (aka a shelf with a plastic sheet over it) for tropical drosera, Mexican pings, cephalotus, and seedlings.

    All outdoors, all the time. Being in zone 10B I don't really have to worry about frost or freezes even though most of my plants are temperate with a few tropical sundews thrown in.
