I've had my speckled amp for a couple weeks now and its still looking sad. I've looked all over but for some reason I haven't found much solid cultivation info. I have several questions that I need answers on and since most people on here are excellent growers and I can get many opinions I figured I'd ask even though they're probably newbie questions.
- does it like shade or sun cause I've heard both? I'm thinking shade is probably right
- are the leaves supposed to be dark green and reddish or is this a sign of sunburn? It came this way and the new leaf opened this way too but I don't have very strong light so I'm not sure its sunburn
- are the pitchers supposed to display the characteristic reduced lid when they're young or can they look like other neps lids?
- is there a light red speckled form of amp because my pitchers have a fair amount of red along with the speckling? could this be from sunburn too?
I'm growing my amp in the same conditions as my bellii which is doing great but it's just not doing well. It must be something that I'm doing but I can't tell what. The humidity is high, the temps are warm and the light isn't really strong or weak. Maybe its just cause I repotted it and it's trying to get over it. If you could answer my questions or add any advice I would be very thankful
also are the leaves of bellii supposed to be red and are small neps just redder than larger neps? The redness hasn't seemed to affect the bellii's growth but it's even redder than the amp.
