    D. filiformis (red)

    Hi all,

    I bought a supposedly all-red variety of D. filiformis from an online retailer about a few weeks back and it's been growing in full Houston sun outdoors. However, I haven't noticed it turning all red like it's supposed to...is that normal? How many hours of direct sunlight does it need to get that red? It looks just like a normal D. filiformis that I used to see back in the pine barrens of Jersey (green leaves, red tentacles).

    Thanks.

    hmm...
    my red Filiformis (both Florida All-Red and normal Red) are growing indoors as seedlings and have deep red coloration.
    I have "Red" Capensis that doesn't turn red indoors for me so if it really was a red Filiformis, it should be pretty easy to turn colors.
