1) Does anyone know where I can get a hold of a B52 fly trap or two? They seem to be kind of hard to come by.

2) Does anyone have a variety of VFT with green leaves and bright red traps (the one on the left of the site banner (pic 1 of 5 below) is exactly what I'm looking for) for sale. My varieties don't seem to get very red even with 10 hours of full sun every day.

Seems like Steve Doonan (a store.com) and David Conner (connerscarnivores.com) are sold out. Those are the only two places that carry them that I'd purchase from.

That's just a typical Venus flytrap that I own. the deep red coloration came from being under really good fluorescent lights for 3 weeks.

Venus Flytraps can seem capricious about when they decide to turn their traps deep red, but most Flytraps can do so under certain conditions and as Matt mentioned, a humble "typical" Venus Flytrap can be as colorful as a fancy clone. Often smaller or younger Flytraps will turn red more readily for some reason. Even the B52, which can develop deep red traps, often doesn't.

I do have some B52s, but when I list those I consider ready to sell and ship, one or two at a time, at a store.com, they usually sell very quickly, often within 15-30 minutes, so it perpetually looks like I'm sold out. :)
