    My guess would be that it should be green.

    It doesn't have any red pigment no matter what the light.

    Edit: I was wrong

    Here are some pictures of my Green Dragon. If I remember correctly, Green Dragon is a cross between typical and red dragon or "Aki Ryu". It has a generally maroon color that is dusted on the edges with green and the traps have a pronounced green banding at the edge.

    BobZ can probably provide you a link to the actual published cultivar description.

    Anyway.. here are the pics.. enjoy

    Yep, those are 'Green Dragon's and as you can see the plants do have red in them, in fact, mine are nearly totally red.

    Mine turn completely red in the heat of the growing season. Quite reminiscent of 'Pink Venus' in colour.

    I can post some pictures of each tomorrow, so you can get an idea. Both cultivars are really quite nice.

    Names, names, names ... will it never end?

    'Green Dragon' was registered as a cultivar in 2005 by publication in Das Taublatt 51:25. The plant was isolated in about 1996 during the amplification of 'Akai Ryu'.

    "Pink Venus" and "Regal Red" are very similar, if not identical. Take a look at

    I have 36 links to photos of "Pink Venus" in the CP Photo Finder.
