    Generally burnt is black, and red in the center of a VFT trap indicates good light and health. WELCOME TO THE FORUMS and GOOD LUCK!!

    Hi wildfire. Welcome to the forums. If your Vft's inner part of the traps is red then that means it has gotten plenty of sun and is very healthy. If the petiole (the part that grows out of the ground and the trap is connected to) is reddish then that means it's a green dragon Vft. A burnt plant's traps dry up and turn brown or black. Hope this helps!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi Wildfire.. welcome to the forums [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Here are a couple very good resources for Venus Flytrap care and handling.
    FAQ pages
    PFT care sheet

    There are also a couple of the forum members VFT care sheets posted here in the forum. There is one by Goldtrap that should be right at the top of the list, and one by Darcie that is on the first page of Venus Flytraps.

    Good luck with your plants
    Steve

    Edit: Amazon.com ships internationally. You should be able to order a copy of Savage Garden from there.

    Hi WildFire


    Greetings and welcome to the forums. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    A picture would be great...much easier to identify a problem if we can see the actual plant.

    There is a forum specifically for VFT care but since this is also an introductory post, I'll leave it here so members can say hello. It is a great community here and we welcome new members.

    Hope you stick around and learn some growing tips for your plants. Do you have other CPs besides a flytrap?
