This one is called LAVA a failed Akai Ryu.

My fltraps receive 4 hours of direct sunlight per day plus the rest of the day under artificial light for a period of 12 hours.

Very nice progress!!! I sowed a dozen or so seeds about a month ago and they’re just not germinating!

Also, impressive with your purple VFT! Im no expert but isn’t it rare that seeds produce something other than a typical VFT? Nice!

No, not rare if the genetics of the parent plants are right. Our Special Red Flytrap Seed Mix usually has about 2 out of 3 babies inheriting the red-leafed genetic trait.

However, it is important to remember that no seed-grown plant can be genetically identical to the parent plant. In that sense, they are all "typical" flytraps until or unless they are chosen and named.
