    The vast bulk of my neps are under fluorescent lights for about 13 hours a day. I have a couple outside that get about 4 hours of direct sunlight per day. For fluorescents I use four four-foot tubes, or a couple or three "fluorex" compact fluorescent lights.

    In the summer mine get bright inderect sunlight. In the winter since the sun is lower and I grow mine in front of a sliding glass door they get direct sunlight most the day. The sun is weaker in the winter time.

    I use a compact flourescent called Regent. It is the same as Flourex except brand name. I use mine 24 hrs a day. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    VTP,

    Mine are in a glasshouse which gets about 6 hours of direct sun in winter and over 10-11 hours of direct sun in summer.

    In terms of reducing the direct light, in summer I use 50% green shade cloth and winter a lining of bubble wrap.

    The buble wrap is more for heat insulation but it does difuse the direct sun which can be quite strong even in winter.

    Aaron.

    VTP,

    ALL my plants are in the same glasshouse so conditions are as noted above for my 4x N. ventricosa's (2x geen, red & inbetween) and 2x N. vent. hybrids (v x maxima & v x rafflesiana).

    In these conditions (note that it is almost winter here) I generally get a new picther every 3 weeks and there is generally 3-5 new pitchers forming per plant at a time.

    Aaron.
