Hi guys,

This year for the first time I have moved a small collection of
CPs from my house into my office. I have been growing these D.
capensis, S. purpurea, and VFTs under the purely artificial light
provided by a four normal flourescent bulbs.

For the past six months, the plants have flourished (in fact,
they look much healthier than their counterparts in the window at
home!). I have been providing them with about 12 hours of light
per day.

Now that Fall is here and Winter approaching, is it suggested
that I reduce the amount of light for until after Winter? Is so,
how much light should I provide them during these next few
