    After six months of being by a window sill and producing green leaf and trap endlessly, I decided to put the young plant outside. It is now turning bronze - not red or brown - but bronze. Is this the right color?

    I have had N. ventricosa turn bronzy. Not an issue, just the ole natural sunblock building up.

    My n.ventricosa 'red' was green its first year. As it matured, pictures started to get bronzy and pinkish. It might be a waiting game. Cool thing is that I have a basal shoot now, and its tiny pitchers are red like the mother plant! it has that juvenile looking lid though.
    A flytrap ate my homework!
