    Can I grow a VFT in the following conditions?

    I have an indoor terrarium with growlights (I want to say 125watts, but I may be off a little bit)

    Currently, I have a Nepenthes Ampullaria, Sarracenia Purpurea Venosa, Heliamphora Minor, Cephalotus, and various sundews and butterworts growing successfully in this terrarium.

    I would like to add a VFT for diversity. However, VFTs have a specific growing conditions. Would these conditions work for a VFT:

    Summer
    Max temp: 90 degrees F
    Min Temp: high 70s degrees F
    Light time: 16 hour photoperiod

    Winter
    Max temp: high 70s degrees F
    Min Temp: 50s degrees F
    Light time: 12 hour photoperiod

    Summer yes except let the light levels down to 7-14 hours during the Summer.

    Winter no max temp no more than 55 degrees F. no less than -10 degrees F. lower photo period to about 8-10 hours.
