I ordered up a Nepenthes Ventrata from this forums shop. I am worried about the amount of sun it would be getting this winter. The shortest the daylight hours get are 9.75 hours on the winter solstice. I am debating on getting a light to supplement it. The issue is I want to be able to keep it in a pot instead of a tank, and I need a compact lighting source or I would have to put it in the chilly basement. Also I am still living with my parents and they don't like high electric bills. That may not be so much of an issue I guess because I would only need a few hours with it on.
I know that the plant could survive the lower lighting, but I also want some good pitcher growth. One reason I am getting one is because many bugs come into the house fleeing the cold weather. These bugs would be good prey.
I wonder if anyone makes a grow light that could be attached to the hanging hardware for hanging a pot? I will google it.
