    Unhappy

    I've got several plants from a dear friend recently but transplanted one into LFS/perlite, instead of the peat/sand mix.

    Guess what...it turned green from its original golden and red!

    Is it a red form or is it just the peat? Or both?

    It's a sessilifolia! Seriously, could it just need more light?

    Yeah, I'm with Jimscott. Don't red forms need a load of light to stay red otherwise they'll turn green?

    I'd have to say it's light as well. Try upping the wattage/exposure!

    I have the green form and red tentacle form growing all over my green house And they all stay true to their color no matter what they are growing in.... I even just found some in a bucket of nasty water growing... Floating on the crap on top the water... AMAZING!

    I don't know about D.burmannii in Australia, but with D.sessilifolia at several sites in central Venezuela I saw maroon, red, orange and yellow plants grow side-by-side!! I'd only ever seen this before with P.moranensis in Mexico, very strange!

    Good luck,

    Not the light, boys. The red (in peat) and green (in LFS) are both under the same lights, next to each other.

    I have found out that in a peaty mixture D.sessifolia will turn a deep red while in lfs it will turn green. I am not sure what exactly causes this, though.
