    Unhappy

    OK so the more red the inside of the trap is the more "happy" the plant is right? I mean over the last week the inside of the traps on my common VFT have gone from a slight red near the center of it, to deep deep red over the entire inside of the traps. There is no green visable on the inside. That's good right?

    In bleak description the waves come crashing; battering the very instinct of every lusting moment to fulfill this gaping desire. A mouth as dry as soot and how it once had tasted of life, fit within a momentís time; And how those fleeting days laid in the light of blissful suffering. -me

    The red color inside the trap is a good sign that your VFT is getting enought light [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Continue with what you are doing. Sounds like your VFT is doing fine.

    Keep in mind that as the summer heat approach, don't let your VFT get "cooked" or the soil to dry out...both are not good things for your VFT. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Ya [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I am keeping pretty concious of that. It does not get super hot here, but I keep an eye on it. I alwayse make sure there is a good 1/3" water in the bowl my VFT's pot is in.

    Hi Ancalagon

    Having deep red on a trap isn't necessarily a sign of a happy plant. The traps on a VFT will turn various shades of pink to red...depends on the variety you have and its genetics. Some barely get pink at all...other can turn blood red. I just wanted to mention that because I don't want anyone to think that just because their traps aren't red, that means their plant isn't "happy" or healthy.

    They do tend to develop more color in the sun...but if they stay green, don't worry!

    Yah, consitter yourself lucky to have a clone with such good coloring. 2 out of my 3 commens are so pathedic in the color area it's funny. One doesn't even get pink in the middle, just a hazzy yellow orange, lol!
