    Pure white Venus Fly Traps

    Has anyone seen these before? I was googling carnivorous plant pics on the internet when I found this:

    Lots of light on traps = red traps

    Not much light/no light on traps = white?

    that had to be covered on one side or diseased.
    A pure white plant would be lacking chlorophyll and wouldn't survive.

    "A pure white plant would be lacking chlorophyll and wouldn't survive."

    The whole plant is not covered, just a few traps. Therefore I don't think the plant would die as it is still getting sunlight from the other traps.

    It looks to me as if the old leaves are green and the newer leaves are deficient in chlorophyll. Either the leaves get green with age or as the plant gets older it produces less chlorophyll. If it is the latter I wouldn't expect this plant to have good chances of survival.
