    What type of light are you using? Like others have said, burbs do tend to be a bit reder then some other Nep species, so that accounts for the difference between plants. I would be surprised to see a nep in too much artificial light unless you are using HID. I would have to agree that it should stay where it is...

    This seems to be a bit more controversial than i had expected. Hopefully i just got a very colorful burbidgeae, and that's why it's become so red. I'll have to look back at the photos i took when i potted it up and see what it looked like when i got it. It may have been reddish already.

    The lights are visible here:

    Gus, some plants are more colorful than others, my coccinea is pink in bright light, my rajahs leaves are green with red stripes on either side of the leaves. Each plant reacts differently to bright light and in time (usually as lights wear out and/or the plant acclimates to the lighting intensity) the leaves do not color up as much. Which explains why his other plants are not showing light pigmentation. As I said before, all my plants look red when they first arrive because they are not accustomed to my conditions but as my photos showed the other day, overall most go back to basically green when they have settled in.

    Here are some new photos of it. It has developed its first pitcher, so i think it is healthy, in spite of the sunburn. I really like this color: i hope it doesn't fade with time!
