    55W GIANT CFLs? You obviously haven't held a 125W or 250W CFL! You could knock a caribou out with those things!
    In any case, I find that Drosera in general require more light than anything else I grow, which is easy to supply with the aforementioned 125W bulb less than a foot above the tops of the plants.

    Cheers

    I'm at the point where I've realized that setting up the proper lighting for sundews in a covered, vertical, four-shelf green house is probably difficult, inefficient, and expensive. I'm starting to think about setting up a terrarium solely for sundews. My birthday is tomorrow so maybe I can talk my dad into setting one up for me as a present. My green house works just fine for tropical pitchers and ultricularia [Edit: actually this genus is spelled, Utricularia] though.

    More light! I had some dews next to a south window with shades that were often closed by my wife and they were struggling with dew production. I then set up a ghetto grow area with four 4' shop lights and they are looking great. There was no change in humidity (~40 - 45 %). It is truly amazing what additional light will do.

    I feel like I'm getting a graded spelling test back when I see those red edit marks, except now everyone can see how stupid I am. x_x;

    They are really light hungry. I'm doing my own light experiment

    My MH says to only use it with a glass lense to block some of the UV. I keep my terrarium covered with acrylic sheets and I decided i'd take them off and see what happens Hopefully the UV will make them even redder than before.
