I have to keep my flytraps in the basement away from my cats. Sometimes in the winter the temperature can fall to 69 degrees Far.
I use a twin 40 watt each flourescent fixture at a distance of about 10 to 12 inches from tops of plants. *I notice a small amount of heat esp. in ballast area. *Is this enough, or should I buy one of those expensive nursery heating pads for the winter.
Is it the rhyzome or bulb temperature that matters or overall ambient temperature (surrounding air) cause the heat pad will only warm the container.
p.s. the plants were bought from this site, so dormancy isn't required this year.
