    no way.. i've got 440 watts of VHO about 18 inches over my dews and the only drosera i can get to produce copious dew is my D. adelae! i tried moving them closer to the lights and theres more redness but no dew.

    if they don't start earning their keep they are going outside with the Sarracenia...

    here is my setup, the Drosera and Pings are on the top shelf, you can kinda make out the D. capensis on the shelf.

    Jiminy Cricket- it looks like "The Road Warrior" out your window in that pic man!!
    Fine use of space on your setup- I have been thinking of how to improve my rig and that looks like a good direction to head off in (anything beats the current one, 2 desklamps on a crummy table)

    Do you leave the Sarrs right there in the window all summer??

    I think I'll toss a few plantlets in with my live LFS, as yet another (safe) experiment.

    lol the pic was taken twords the end of winter. we have had almost 4 inches of rain since the first of the month with more predicted fot this week(last year we had 2.3 inches total for the month of June) needless to say its quite green at the moment. i am not sure what im going to do with the Sarrs this summer. last summer they survived under flourecents. this summer is supposed to be hotter than last so i think i may put them in a south window here at work for the summer so i can close the curtain at home. also they are alot taller this year than last.

    also yes this is a good setup to save space and it works well. my setup looks terrible cause im big on "that will do for now" type logic. WHEN i redo it i will find 4 ft shelves instead of the PITA 3.5 footers that the local harware store carries. it was quite interesting rigging up the lights. also i dont care for my tray set up and it needs to me refined.
