    that sounds like a "brilliant" idea huhuh seriously that is pretty cool. i think most people just do the lights above because cp's grow in rosettes on the ground. well, besides nepenthes.....

    let us know how it goes. or make a diy thread with pics!

    Horrible. Huge amounts of heat and very little usable light spectrum for plant growth.

    yeah i have those too. they work real good and you can get a pair of 26watt from walmart for 8 bucks

    edit: i just got my pack out to see the specs

    they are 26 watts/100 watt equivalent - 1600 lumens each. "daylight 6500k"
