Quick question, is is common for a one month old nepenthes seedling to develop a reddish mottle (I hope it's not kicking the bucket)? This one is developing some tiny red spots. It's a hybrid of [(Rokko x boschiana) x veitchii] EP x (Song of Melancholy x boschiana).

Rokko and Boschiano are often depicted with rather reddish leaves, so I am hoping the seedling (which was the first to germinate) is just getting its coloration.

Conditions: 82 degrees during the day and 58-62 at night, 14 hours of artificial light. I keep the medium moist but not wet.
