    , im jus worried about the lights, i hav a normal room bulb, but its kinda dimmed, i was thinking about putting a desk lamp ryte there, but itll b too blinding to me

    theres no point of plants if u cant enjoy it as an ornamental plant (indoors/a foot away from ur face) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Well vfts need lots of light. I`m talking right on top of them. Don`t use incadescent as they are too hot and burning,as well as not provideing much light. Go with flourescent,you can use a compactflourescent bulb and put it in a desklamp type thing with the bulb about 3-5 in. above the plants depending on the wattage\lumens of the bulb.

    With humidity higher than 50%, alot of light and warm temperatures, its possible to grow them indoors. Maybe set up a light just for it?
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    it will absolutely 100% guarenteed not work.
    not nearly enough light.
    and even if you provided a lamp, it would be too hot and too dry. (and STILL not be enough light!)
    the top of a computer is certain death for a VFT.
    and on top of all that, they should be going dormant right now..
    death death death..
    sorry..but I didnt make up nature's rules.
