    I have noticed from year to year different intensities of red in the traps of different VFT's I grow.
    All my 'Big Mouths' which last year had great color, have a dull color like your B52's this year.

    Ya kinda wonder about how long cultivars / strains hold up with advertized distinguishing features, over time.

    It's hard to know for sure... could be where I let them flower this year, environmental variances, progressive leaching of nutrients from the substrate, the increase in vegetative mass, increases in root mass, or a combination of any or all of the above etc etc

    while not at colorful, the trap size has increased

    Looking good butch. I didn't let any of my B52s flower this year and they are a spitting image of yours. This year has brought some unusual things in terms of growth for many growers so this seems par weirdly enough.

    Yeah like my vft with 15+ trigger hairs, really weird year. Even my bigmouth vft haven't turned a deep crimson red color so far, not sure why?
