    My Drosera adelae gets 10 hours artificial light and 4 of natural

    Let there be light. but, you already have, so give it some time.i left a green spatulata in the sun for a week before the color really started to show.
    And though the Heavens and the Earth pass away.

    like sundewd i did the same thing with my drosera )(D. Spatulata .,
    it did take a while to color up but once it did it got deep red tenticles .

    don't expect it to turn red realy fast and try not to burn it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    i only keep that one on my windo seal so it get's cool nights and bright sunlight , i read that i had to adjust it to natural sunlight so as not to harm it .
    goodluck.
    patient happy customer!!!
