Well this is my first summer growing CP. Started with a VFT, now I have a Cephalotus on the way and a fresh Sarracenia that I just bought. For the winter, I will for sure need to have the pitchers brought inside as the deep winters will be too cold here in PA. I also need to be able to simulate a dormancy period for them. Well my plan is going to begin with an old 5 gallon fish tank that is collecting dust in my parents garage. The basement is cool in the winter and the dehumidifier lets me control the %. So what I really need is just to figure out the right lighting for dormancy. I'm thinking that 2 CFL bulbs will do the trick as they are only 2 small and young plants. I am not trying to do any real growing, mainly just make them survive the winter indoors. i'm considering getting either 2 6500k or 5000k, will this get me where I need to be?
I'm new to this and have been reading everything I can. My understanding is that if I set the lights for the proper shorter photoperiods during the day, I should be able to trigger and simulate a dormancy for the plants.
