    Are neps the same case as sundews, less light=bigger+greener
    more light=smaller+redder??
    I have an N. Sanguinea with a pitcher maybe 1/3 bigger than it's leaf. It's green with some red spots inside. Then I look at another pitcher, which is red (hehe, that one came with the plant when i ordered it.) and it's smaller. Is the sundew fact true?

    Nepenthes grown in poor light won't have very colorful traps. Neps grown in very intense light have red petioles too. However I haven't noticed a major size difference.

    Actually, good light gives you a better pitcher/leaf size ratio. If you have a pitcher larger than the leaf, it should be from being in good light.

    Higher humidity will encourage larger traps,thats why it`s recomended to put live sphag under a developeing pitcher.
