    Hi all,

    I got a VFT today. Its trap interior is completely red. One of the trap's teeth are red. The exterior isn't red, but newly emerging traps/stalks are reddish, with green on the unopened trap. The plant was kept in a shaded area in the nursery I got it from.

    I'll post a pic as soon as I can. Is this a red VFT?

    It might be, but you won't know for sure untill you have had it in good light for a while. Even if it isn't an all red, getting a plant with solid smooth color inside the trap is a great find too! Most just have a burst of color at the center and sort of peeter out to green befor hitting the edges of the mouth.

    Oh well.. that's a little disappointment BUT it is a very beautiful plant in its own right too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Anyway, my other typical VFT has only half pink (not even red) traps, the other has like green traps (and it's a typical, supposedly)... so are there diff types of "typicals" with diff trap colourations?

    ebeyonder, I will tell you a typical can very quite a bit. Some typicals may produce "Giant" traps. Some can even give out a deep deep burgandy in the traps. I know a friend who has a typical, but everyone thinks its some sort of All red trap clone. I will bet that the typical in that picture will be very pretty if you give it maximum sun exposure to the sun.Here is a very red typical:
