    Just an addendum to this. How much sun is maximum sun? Ebeyonder and I live in equatorial SEA, where temperatures can easily reach 38C in direct sunlight. Won't this cause the VFT to burn, even if it does guarantee redness?

    Also, I was going to post about my dismal repotting attempt, but after reading eBeoynder's posts, I'm slightly more reassured. Mine's been repotted in a stratified medium: sphagnum moss, then peat moss, then some sphagnum, then more peat. I hope that isn't a problem.

    Just as long as you do it slowly so the flytrap can adapt will be fine.

    er, uh you mean layers? Layers aren't usually a good idea, but you can give it a try.

    I've got a qustion or two or three

    question 1 & 2: How can you tell the difference between a typical and a non-typical? Does just come with experience?

    question 3: Why is it not a good idea to have layers in the soil?

    Just wondering.

    Hey Colin, I put my older VFT outside. It seems to be doing OK. All its leaves are green and there's a nice pinkish colour inside the traps. But as uglypho has said, slow adaptation is the key. I got another VFT from FEF a month ago. As u know, those were put under heavy shade at FEF. When I put it out in the hot sun immediately after purchase, some of the leaves promptly turned yellow/brown within days and died. However, the plant is now putting out new green leaves.

    Glad to here the plats adapting Ebeyonder.Wes, If the plant has a consistent feature,e.g.prostrate habit, it is not a typical.Don't get the last one Wes. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Consistent feature? Sorry but I'm not the greatest vocabulary student so could you explain that? E.g. prostrate habit? Explain that one while at it.
