    Thanks for the comments. The plants are under 2, 48" 54 watt T-5 bulbs. One is a 10000K daylight bulb. The other is a plant-grow bulb. It is also 54 watt, but without searching for the package, I'm not 100% certain on the Kelvins of that one. They also receive light from 1, 48" 40 watt T-8 2800K Flora-Glo bulb. The plants themselves sit about 6-8 inches from the light source. Also, they receive indirect light from a reef tank that sits directly behind it, giving it light from 4 T-5 bulbs. The light cycle is on for approximately 16 hours a day.

    It really depends. That light was added after the ceph had already been in there for several months. Any new pitchers that develop usually take anywhere from a week to two weeks to get that really deep color. It really depends for me on the pitcher size and where it is located in the pot. I see almost immediate (few days) coloring of the pitcher, but like I said I would have to guess that it takes about 2 or so weeks in order to achieve that really deep red color.
