This is my Venus flytrap from Home Depot! Why are the traps not pink? I will be reporting soon after reading how they need 6 inch deep. Image

Welcome to FlytrapCare!

Your Home Depot flytrap looks very healthy. Some flytraps get deep red traps, others will stay green all the time. Light is a contributing factor to coloration, but, as sanguinearocks101 stated, it largely comes down to the genetics of the individual plant.

Looks like you're taking good care of it. Great job! Also, I like that cactus in the background.
