What causes the trap redness?
Carnivorous Plant Society CA Forum
by BunsenH

When I bought my last VFT, it caught my attention because its traps were much brighter red than those of the VFTs I already had. I did a bit of reading on-line, and found several "explanations".

So I was talking with Phil Sheridan and he did a research paper on Sarracenia purpurea and venosa and apparently they are not different and that the name "venosa" should all be called Purpurea purpurea.
