    Question

    Can I make the traps of a common flytrap that have fully developed gain a deep blood-red hue?I can't make my traps red.

    uglypho,
    Welcome to the Forum !
    How much direct sun is your flytrap getting. They need lots of direct sunlight to turn red.

    My plant is getting 5hours of sunlight. I heard that if you starve your plant it will turn red.That's just a rumer. (Note: This is not my vft.This is a typical vft.)

    It's really hard to make a typical venus flytrap get some coloration.I got mines from a hardware store.Big Mouth venus flytrap can have ultra redpurple traps.Here's some images.

    I have also heard that starving the flytrap will cause the traps to turn red, but I don't know if it is true or not. I grow my flytraps on my porch rail. They get sun from about 7:30 to 3:30 and have nice red traps.
    It's possible that you have a variety that stays green.

    My variety has a hint of pink in the traps.Is your typical vft the one you said was red? (I think this is my fly trap's variety.Also this is how red it is.)
