So, I've got these traps growing from Dionaea Yellow seeds in the same jar since re-plating them on March 9th and they are all from the same seed packet but not all plants look the same. A few are quite yellow, a few less yellow and a few almost green. Then just a few days ago, this....

Wow I love this one! :D
Thanks Willy, it was a big surprise for me. They are mostly showing only a spot of red. Some in the middle of the trap but mostly at the top end where its darkest. It seems like the red colour ends about halfway down where it gradually blends into yellow orange then green. So sad that most Flytraps lack a true red. Some have it but mostly its just a lot of burgundy brownies. Last year I was so desperate for red I even imported a Dionaea Space. Then after it died (in dormancy) I ordered another two. They just arrived a day or two before I noticed this one. When mature, Space has the same shade of red but no graduation to yellow or green. So rare. Just cant stop admiring. Wheeeee.
