    1. Can't answer that

    2. Bromeliads don't just "switch" form carnivorous to non carnivorous. Which species of bromeliad is this? Only 3 have been known to actually absorb nutrients from dead bugs

    3. Give a Red Dragon full sunlight, and you get a blood red VFT. Put a Red Dragon in shade, you get a green VFT. Same goes with Green Dragon VFTs

    I have had dente flytraps have some traps with typical "teeth."

    How does a bromeliad switch back and forth from carnivorous to non-carnivorous? What kind of brom is it?

    As for the Red Dragon...a Red Dragon is a Red Dragon. Its a registered cultivar (I think its registered). The color will vary depending on genetics and light levels. A Red Dragon in low light will probably not be as red.

    I'm pretty sure it's actually one of the few registered forms PAK.

    maybe you're changing its environment too quickly (or the weather's changing too fast)?
