    In my limite experience with this plant, window sill lighting makes it look like a "typical". A 30W fluorescent light over it for 15 hours a day improves it some, but not nearly to the capacity as having it outside, in direct sunlight.

    I was going to ask the same thing. I have 65 watt CF's, and they're like mini-suns.

    its 100w output. the actuall wattage is 26...or around that. that one is directly over top of it. there is another 60watt(output) CF but its on the other side of the 10gal tank.

    Oh, well that's not gonna do anything to make it red. I'd consider putting it under two 30w fluorescent 5000k CFs. That would do something. Mine colored up like crazy under that (although there was a bit more light next to it). Actually, I think it was mostly under one 30w, since it was pretty much touching one of them.

    Or use lights in combination with windowsill light. I do that, and it works fine.
    that makes no logic

    Generally, the majority of self-pollinated seed from red Drosera capensis grow to be red like their parent, when given suitable environmental conditions.
