    Sarracenia purpura fall colors

    Good afternoon, terraforums. I obtained an S. Purpura last summer and in fall it turned bright red/purple. It had some purple veining in the summer, but this was solid red. Anyone else seen this in S. Purpura? Are there any other sarrs that exhibit this "fall color"? Thanks.

    I new Purpura meant purple, I just thought that it became purple in bright sun, like vft's with red traps. Are there any other Sarracenia that exhibit this? Sorry if I misspelled Sarracenia.

    A lot of Sarracenia either a) experience their best coloration in fall traps, or b) accumulate high levels of anthocyanin and other pigments in response to stress fro changing conditions. This is typical; color is also influenced by genetics and some specimens will not show this deep blushing while others represent extreme examples of it.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
