In any case, your plants look great! Nice job. -Lock
Yes, they naturally get a lot of color when conditions are right. Everything I hear about drosera in general is that the amount of light has to do with the coloration- of course they revel in light but these seem to depend on water and feeding. To me this seems to be a pretty hardy plant, doesn't mind being transplanted, going completely dry, cold temps, leaf cuttings, ect. but to keep it deep red/burgandy I have to over feed it and keep it WET on 16/8 hours in 77+f heat.
Sadly my inconsistency with them in turn gives me the changes in their color week to week-
Funny to me you're asking if this picture was colored, because I was thinking the plant was very green, and wondering what I needed to do to boost the color! haha!
Happy plants: In real life these pots/plants look identical.
Taken with my cell phone, regular flash, overhead 2700k bulb. You can't even see the dew:
Taken with my camera, no flash, back-lit by a 6500k light bulb . I was attempting to capture the dew:
The pictures weren't colored. I got a new camera so I WAS playing with settings and options while i clicked away but the only photos I've edited/used diff settings were these:
This one I had used the fish eye lens option on my camera:
and I used the 'natural snow' camera option on these making them glow:
