    I'm assuming this is the panel you're talking about. https://www.yescomusa.com/products/135w-led-plant-grow-light-hydroponic-225-panel-white
    The specs say that at 3.28 feet above the plant, you'll...

    Going to go ahead and agree that high powered LEDs are not the way to go with Nepenthes. If you're dead set on an LED, this light...

    Good rule of thumb with a new carnivorous plant (that isn't a Nepenthes), wait a month to see how it will grow. After a month, the new leaves the plant puts out are going to be a good indication of...

    Definitely more light. I've also seen this kind of thing with bad soil. Good example is this stuff. https://zoomed.com/reptisoil/. This stuff is marketed for carnivorous plants but I'm pretty sure...

    Honestly, if your background is what you say it is and those boxes or other larger scales models can be rigged to air conditioning systems and the like, the application of this, in terms of the skill...

    Yes, it is possible to give them too much light. I don't have much experience with this and VFTs under those kind of LEDs but my general experience with VFTs is that they're pretty bulletproof when...

    It's worth experimenting with. I've read that in the absence of a dormancy, VFTs gradually etiolate and die eventually somewhere down the line. Whether it's within the next growing season or within...

    It sounds like a lot of work but realistically, it's not a huge amount. Just adjust a timer every two weeks. Put an ice pack or two in tank every night. Put them in the refrigerator a couple of times...
  10. Overwintering flytraps indoors without uprooting/refrigerating them.

    I have flytraps growing outdoors at work but I currently live in a third floor apartment and I have two in a grow tent at home that I don't want to get infested with ants (which in turn start farming...

    That's a steep temperature drop. My personal experience with this kind of thing in general is that heating an enclosure is much easier than cooling one down. One trick you can try is by making a...
  12. A warning on using 300 watt LEDs as grow lights.

    I've read mixed reviews on these kinds of lights. Some state that the Mars Hydro lights have been good for their plants. Others state that the dimmable varieties like MaxisSun and Viparspectra caused...

    So I moved the the cape sundew and the D.adelae to where I'm growing my Nepenthes. They're currently under 4 T8 fluorescents and already seem happier there. I trimmed a lot of the warped growth off....

    I think both of those lights are meant as supplemental lighting. If I remember correctly, the manufacturer recommends that they only be kept on for 5 hours at a time. I think the implication there is...

    I just moved the light up a few inches. This is my first time trying LEDs. From what I understand they're a different animal than fluorescents. The plants are fairly new to the collection too. The...
  16. 300w maxsisun LED sucking the life out of my sundews

    Has anyone had this issue with 300w LEDs. I'm growing a cape sundew, a binata, and an adelae under this light. The binata is spreading like wildfire but the cape sundew is wilting, new leaves are...
