How long did the color last on ur red rockets? I got a rocket farms flytrap too and I’m trying to learn the secrets to that bright red trap :shock:
I grow mine under leds which always bring out the maximum coloration in any vft. But I definitely purchased the plants when they were showing their best, around late summer last year.
Is there no hope for rocket farms coloration under bright sunlight then?
If Winter Dormancy under the sunlight doesn’t bring out the colors, nothing will. I’ve read that Cool Temperatures X Very Bright Light = Jaw Dropping Coloration. Back when I used to grow outdoors I noticed the plants showed their best coloration during dormancy while getting a few hours every day of direct sunlight in very cold temperatures. I read that LEDS are cool light so they have a similar effect.
