    Strong light certainly does help. I remember the first time I saw Peter D'Amatos red capensis and Akai Ryu flytraps(and then looking at my own half green-half red plants), lol.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Darcie from my understanding my plant originated from the member "noah" here on Terraforums. It was labeled a red form when I recieved it so we shall see this summer if indeed it lives up to it's labeling.

    Darcie, if your 'seedlings' are indeed from seed, there is a high likelihood that most of the seedlings will not retain the coloration of the parent -- unless the red color is the result of strongly dominant genes. Often a plant with special characteristics (such as a very red capensis) is selected from a group of siblings. To retrain those characteristics, the plant must be reproduced asexually (cloned). If folks are growing plants from seed and calling those seedlings the same name as the parent, there is little wonder why the plants look different from the parent and tend toward the common plant.

    I have 2 types of "red" seedling down at the moment. Some I got as 'capensis red flower' and the others came off a friends red capensis. The 'capensis red flower' are very red especialy for seedlings and much redder than the 'capensis red' seedling growing next to them.

    Does anyone know what this 'capensis red flower' is supposed to be?

    George,

    Can you post a photo? The species is highly variable. but I have never seen what I consider to be a "red" flower.
