    Minimum lux for VFT under lights

    Hi Guys-

    I have a few open spots under my lights in the house. My lights are on for 12 hours a day. I intend to prop up my VFT pots high enough to get proper light, or enough to wake them up. The only tool I have to measure is a lux meter - so I am hoping someone can provide a value in that format. I will eventually move them out to the greenhouse, but we only have ~9 hours a day.

    Thanks much!

    Best regards, Lisa

    I would just move them into a cool area of your greenhouse now. They're dormant and won't need as much light as they do during active growth. It would be a bit early to try waking up your flytraps anyway. Its still January, even with all this warm weather we've had.
