    well..there is no such thing as "dormancy lights"..unless you are also maintaining 35-45 degrees F..
    but if you have normal indoors temps, 70 degrees, then you have far too much heat and not nearly enough light..which means the plants wont hold dormancy, they will "break dormancy" and try to grow, without enough light..which is bad..

    but since its mid-January already, its probably best to just leave them alone..
    leave them where they are, under the lights, until Spring, then put them outside..
    you dont really have any alternatives at this point..
    they will probably be fine..

    if they remain completely static for the next 2 months, dont change at all, no growth, but also no more browning, then you should be in good shape..you *want* your plants to do absolutely nothing for the next 2 months!
    that would be good..

    (just a tip for the future..never buy VFTs or Sarracenia in the winter!

    Do you mean never buy them in the winter unless they are from a reputable grower? There are deep discounts to be had since business is slow. If you don't mind purchasing a division that has no pitchers and looks terribly boring, winter time is a good time to buy imo. Of course, if you buy from a seller that is not the best grower and you are not informed of what the conditions were prior to the purchase, I think you have a good point.

    Just my 2 cents.

    How about: "Never buy VFTs or Sarracenia in the winter, unless you are an experienced CP grower, you know what you are doing, you fully understand and are able to deal with dormancy issues, and you also know if the plants you are buying are dormant or not."

    that should cover it!

    sure, buying a dormant plant in January can be fine I suppose..
    as long as you know its dormant, and you have a proper place to KEEP it dormant until you put it outside in the spring..but that is seldom the case it seems..
