EFEA3063-81E1-4332-A805-DE15E860824E.jpegDoes humidity increase or decrease color on fly traps? I moved to live right by the water in Portland texas, it is humid 100% of the time, it’s never dry. But it rained a whole lot the other day, I think I saw aphids on my plants not sure though, because they were white small bugs, and I got some pesticide which I’ll show y'all in another post, but the plants are in the brightest part of my home, (south facing area) and they get sun from 7 am to 8:30 or so pm. But they are getting tons of sun, I needed to know if humidity has any impact with color, because it gets up to 90°-95°f, every day. So any answer would be helpful thank you!

How long have the plants been in this new location with full sun 7am to 830pm? I'm assuming you had the plants at the prior home? How did they look there?

They looked bad, they had no color, and the humidity varied greatly, now that I’m right on the water it stays in 70% to 100% humidity, the plants have been in this spot for 3-4 weeks now. The humidity was low multiple times like at 10%, 19%, 60% and very rarely it would be 100% so where I’m at now is very very humid. But they were originally indoors all winter under grow lights, but tons of red/ deep purple traps! They look a ton better outdoors, the pictures I posted are all new traps since they’ve been outdoors, my b52 is regrowing after getting a rhizome clipping, which I successfully cloned, and is about to open a brand new trap, it is kinda pink, but I’m waiting for the big traps to come back. The temps at my old location were about 90-102°f in the spring and summer, but give me an answer! Tyvm

Oh sorry, I was addressing the plants overall. If you only want to know about humidity and coloration... I would say it's lower on the list of things that affect color than light. I grow flytraps in a few different places of varying humidity and if they're a colored form of flytrap, they've got color.
