    My Nepenthes are under a pair of 32w daylight T8's at about the same distance. I didn't get much in the way of pitchers with 12 and 14 hour photoperiods, but they're doing very well with 16 hours of light per day.

    i use 32 watt T8's cause thats what i can find cheap.....use the cheapest bulb i can find as well......i use atleast 4 bulbs but if the rack can fit it i always go 6............this system has worked without fail for 4 years now..........though now that some of the neps are starting to vine i may increase the height and add a light or two to the sides........

    So far there is two in my highland basement set-up and they are killer lights. They are 65 watts with 4,550 lumens and color temp is 6,500 degrees Kelvin

    Those are nice lights, JMurphy, and plants grow well under them. However, I've had about five of those fail on me in relatively short order, and have only two that still work. One day they just stop working. ?? Maybe I've been unlucky, but they're obviously inexpensively made. One good thing is that our power company in California subsidizes them, so I get 'em for about $20 per.

    LOA products are cheap, and it shows. I use them two (the 4' dual tube fluorescent fixtures) and sometimes they just stop working indefinitely. I've had about 4 of them fail on me in 2 years. Not too bad though, considering they're $8 a piece
