    These lights are smaller then normal 20 watt and 40 watt bulbs though. 4,500 with 2 fixtures is 7,000 in a whole lot less space then a 4 foot bulb. Plus they are very much brighter then my 40 watt bulb I had on my fish tank.

    I think im about ready to take on a hamata, or perhaps even a macrophylla.

    i've found that adjusting your terrarium to the conditions of your pickiest plants will give you the most success. i basically have a highland terarium, and grow MANY different types of plants in there (including a bicalcarata- lowland nep) and they do fine. they take a while to adjust and some grow a bit slow, but it all works out.

    Now just to find a place to get a hamata at a reasonable price...
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    when theyre young (less than 6" across), they are hard to grow because you have to keep their conditions constantly favorable and stable. Also, when young they are prone to up and die from shipping shock, even if shipped potted.
