My first venus fly trap is a young SD Kronos that I bought 4 months ago for $80. Over the weekend, I bought a $5 venus fly trap from Lowes. Its tissue is tissue paper thin, flimsy, and the plant entirely lacks color, sporting a transparent faint green color.
I moved it out of its humidty dome and into a deep pot in AAA Besgrow New Zealand long fiber sphagnum cristatum, and have it under artificial light with a PAR of 250 PPFD.
Will it grow deeper colors, reds, and grow thicker tissue if treated well, or do typicals always look this pathetic?
