    Light on the Flytrap

    Ok like I said my trap is only getting 4 hours of light and somehow it is doing fine, but I want to to get alot more light so I got a clip on lamp(26 watt) and placed it outside, on the balcony, for my VFT for when the sun goes on the other side of my house.

    I was just wondering how far apart should I put a 26 watt spirally from the Fly Trap so it doesnt burn it. I burned myself when I tried to turn it off. ouch

    A lamp outside.

    You sir, are original.

    But, I have no idea where you should put it, it is very hard to say.

    won't you have some major problems when it rains?
    is it a outdoor lamp?
    electricity and water don't do too well together.

    Indeed.

    I am 13 years old, so I guess we have something in common .

    It would short circuit, and even if you would bring it inside, then, it would still be a huge hassle.

    Even the indirect light of the sun is more powerful than a lamp. The lamp would probably do little. If the plant is healthy I think you don't really need to do it. If it's fine and doing well, leave it be.

    What kind of lamp? An ordinary lamp will have no effect - you need a 6500 Kelvin white light, preferably 40 watt plus.

    It'll be fine outdoors, even though it's only getting 4 hours of direct sun. The lamp really is pointless I'm afraid!
