    A 58 watt shoplight canít be lowered in my terrarium though.
    I think Iíll simply raise the small plants while the larger plants (nepenthes for example) simply stand on the buttom.


    40 watt? The Grow lamps (Aquarium "optimized for plant growth") I can buy are only 36 watt or the biggest 58. Didn't knew -or have ever seen that- there was something in between.
    (I live in The Netherlands btw )

    Yeah mostly in the big cities but not everywhere you know

    By the way, we're talking about the same lamps right?
    The ones I'm talking about look like this:


    Just in case...

    They look like that but how long are those?
    Also, the green caps indicate low pollution.

    Here in the states, you can get 4 bulbs in a shoplight going for 20 buks about. They sell them at Home Depot. www.HomeDepot.com and check out lighting.

    The lights I was talking about (And about the only growlights I can get my hands on) cost around 30 euro for a single 58 watt light.

    Here in the netherlands we don't have a HomeDepot either.

    Yeah I'll first buy 2 58 watt lights and a dual shoplight. (About 100 euro in total I guess)
    I can always upgrade to another set when needed.

    But isn't there an article somewhere that shows optimal lighting(wattage/lumen/lux/whatever) for carnivorous plants?

    An article?

    Look at the post Terrarium lighting 101.

    6500K is more blue and for vegitation, and 2500-3000 is more yellow and better for flowering.
