    Grow lights for sarracenias ?

    What artificial lights should I use for growing sarracenias from seeds? I am growing them in a green house in my room. I do not have lots of knowledge on lights and the structure so all the info and tips will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Many people use T5s or T8s for growing plants. You will need to buy the fixtures and the lights separately. They are pretty long, so offer a fair amount of light.

    Sarracenia like strong sun, so I would go for at least 12 hours.

    I use an 18/6 photoperiod with great results. 12 hours under artificial light is not enough in my experience.
