Dionaea muscipula 'Yellow'
1st July 2006
Some of the 'All Green' forms cook in the summer sun like a ripe 'Golden Delicious' apple, and become succulent yellow. The colour is very dependant on light level and growing conditions.
Sooner or later a golden leaved form will emerge from the broth of tissue culture like a pustulous pimple on a teenagers face, but for now all we have are pallid wannabees.
