    Drosophyllum under lights

    Anyone grow these under lights for the winter or just use a window?

    In your neck of the woods you would need lighting. I kept mine indoors during the winter and it made it ok under a 40w CFL in one of those clip on reflector lamps. I put a few inch wide piece of foil around the edge to help direct the light straighter to the plant as the bulb was sticking out past the edge of the reflector. The tips of the leaves were up in the bulb and the plant managed ok. It didn't have as good color as when it was outside, but it kept growing and stayed compact.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
