    Question Outside of traps red.

    For some reason, a few of my VFT's traps are red both on the inside and the outside. The outside is more of a purple dark red than the inside, plus one of them has this green stripe down one side. I think it's only on a few of them because I think I have more than one plant. Is this normal? Here's a picture of one of the traps.

    Will it stop doing this? I think it's kindof cool looking.

    yeah my Big mouth VFTs are doing the same thing. It happened when I put them out in full sun and they colored up a bit. It's probably an indicator of plenty of sunlight

    Those ones are older from when I first put them out in sunlight. I took them back inside because it's really crappy outside. Now the traps are bright green and really small, only about 1/2 inch. They used to be at least 1 inch. I'll put them back outside as soon as it clears up.

    I have noticed this with my traps as well. It is definitely related to the sun. I have had one trap laying on top of half of another trap and the one that was half covered only turned half red.

    You won't get coloration like that again until you start giving it sunlight again.
