    help with photoperiod

    hey all just need a little help with some photoperiod stuff. I have some sarracenia flava var maximas and their seedlings, a couple leuco tarnoks, a purpurea, a sarracenia ladybug, 2 venus flytraps, and a drosera rotundifolia. they are on my back porch now and get 3 hours of direct sunlight a day from 230 to about 530 and all seem to be happy. I am however not getting much red from my purpureas, fly traps, or sundew. I realize some plants dont turd red but Im thinking 3 hours isnt enough for the plants I have. My front yard has direct sun from about noon till 6 or 7. so about say 6 hours of direct sunlight.

    I guess the question is should I move out front? if so could the plants handle An immediate transition? I dont wanna kill em if they seem pretty happy, they just may benefit from more sun.

    Three hours of sun really isn't enough. I'd go with the front yard.

    The more sun most red plants get, the redder they are. I imagine it would hold true for CPs as well. Btw you are not talking about the photoperiod. Your plants are getting around a 15 hour photoperiod right now, but only 3 hours of direct sun. Unless you keep a light on at night in which case you functionally lengthen the photoperiod. Photoperiod is strictly the length of the day.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
