    Santos, I was worried about my new N. eymae when it arrived; it was all green when I got it and after the 1st day it had turned a deep burgundy red color from the sun it was in. The plant has since well adapted and the new pitchers look strong.

    Here is what it did in the sun in 24 hours:


    Here is one of the reddened leaves that has since started pitchering:


    Look at the newest leaf it has grown; this was produced completely in my conditions and isn't showing any red:

    Notice for comparison in size and color the red leaf underneith; this is on the same plant.

    Many of my other Neps that reddened since moving in the sunny greenhouse have new growth much stronger than the previous growth. They seem to need a short acclimation period but after going through this, they seem to respond much better. I am sure your plants will do fine in your new brighter conditions.
