    try the windowsill. It seems to solve all my 'dewless' problems.

    The species you're growing should be able to benefit from it. Make sure you adapt them to the lower humidity slowly though.

    Rattler,

    When my plants are indoors, they are that far away too. Everything colors up fine, flowers normally, etc. I actuaally get better color under my lights then in the sun. Just that it's cheaper to keep them outside for the summer.

    I have been told by Sarracenia Northwest that the sundews should be about 4 inches from the lights. Interesting others do fine without being that close.
    SpyCspider your sundews are real nice. I am particuarly interested in the D. aliciae though. Some of your suggested that might get more dew if they went outside. However the hot kansas sun , well I thought it got "sunburned" as it was much redder. Do they turn red because the sun makes them naturally pink? The other sundews are fine though.
    I am just afraid the Kansas sun is going to dry it out and burn them to a crisp. Some of the pitchers seem to be getting a little burned on the tops.
    Thanks for adding to this thread and those nice pics.
