Do red VTF varieties fade with time?

Recommended Posts

So I thought that I read somewhere that red varieties of dionaea gradually lose the red color and turn green as time goes by?

Is that true...?

Are some mutations more or less likely to lose pigmentation than others?

No, that's not true at all.  The red coloration on red flytraps changes with light intensity and the changing of the seasons but they never "lose" their red coloration permanently.
