Don't worry about. Part the fun is hunting them down. Luckily, I found a VFT in Lowes, it's not red like from Walmart, but pretty nonetheless. Sorry for the bad quality, I could get it to focus.

Mine looked pretty much the same when I first got it, and as it grew it's traps looked way greener. Now all the divisions just look like normal typicals.
This has been my experience as well. I've never gotten a repeat performance on that amazing original coloring. Now they just look like regular typicals that I would have casually passed by if it weren't for that intense color that separated me from my money. I wonder if before shipping out Rocket Farms does something special with their lighting spectrum to bring out that bright red/pink color for better display and to increase their sales. :?

So of course my mom got me one, even after telling me not to spend more money on plants. The one I got looks like it has 3 growth points, but I'll check again after repotting

I agree, I had to spend 2 weeks in the hospital recently (not covid related), and spent an extra week inside my house, but I just saw the VFT for the first time yesterday, and it looks completely different than the one I bought.

Granted, it decided to flower twice and grow loads of traps, but the traps are smaller and almost entirely green. Who knows what kind of sorcery Rocket Farms do to their VFTs...
