    Some of mine does the same thing. Sounds like you're giving it the right amount of light.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Ozzy's right. It's a good sign if your VFT is turning red. I think the only way you could possibly give a VFT too much sun would be to put it ON the sun LOL! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    It'll be fine as long as it has plenty of water and humidity.
    It'll take all the sun you can give it as long as it does.

    I had one stalk of one of my baby typical VFT's transform in color.

    It was very red with some green as the trap formed. Then it went red and the green portions went golden yellow (but not from sun burn). Now the upper leaf part is slightly translucent (almost see through)! The other stalks on this particular VFT are the typical green with slight pink that is common in the common VFT.

    I was actually hoping the whole plant would go red and golden. It would be a really pretty VFT.
