    moved to the VFT forum. If I recall there was another question on red coloring recently.

    The more sun the plant gets the more red in the trap. Although some varieties will stay green or at most get a pink blush. Slowly acclimate your plant to brighter light so you don't give it sunburn.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I've had my vft for almost six months and it is just now starting to get red in the mouth. Sometimes it jsut takes time I guess. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Once its in brighter light it could still take a while to get some red in its mouth. So don't think it needs more if it doesn' turn red right away.

    For some reason my traps got red within a week of me putting them outside. I give them southern exposure and they are doing excellent! Today it was 105 degrees here in Illinois, I just give them plenty of water and they do really good.
