  1. Lamps are in combination at the moment, but this kind of metal halide doesn't like me so much because gives some colours with lower purpurea and psittacina, but with higher leuco and flava has the problems I said before and burns a bit the " hats" of sarracenias. I tried to keep it higher but the light was too spread and so i lost colours. I think led lamps could be a very intresting solution, plants grows healthy and smell like growing in full sun light.

I saw this post that show good result with HQI seedlings, but I didn't find anything about adult plants. I have to illuminate an area of 100 x 60 cm from an he
