I need advice

I'm beginner with heliamphora, and I would like to know about lightning them. I use fluorescent bulbs, an I would like to know what would be good for heliamphoras, like how far them should be from plants and everything else.
And sorry for my bad english.

You also need to consider the fluorescent lamp type you use, as many will produce a large proportion of their output as green light, which is of little use to the plant. In order to compensate for the waste you need more lamps. Alternatively, you could use lamps that produce much of their output in the useful photosynthesis band, which will produce more light that the plants can use and thus you have to compensate less for wasted light.
