    Too much light for my Ping Florian?

    I've had this plant for almost a month now. P.Florian
    It's 12" under T5 HO lights. Do you think it's getting too much light?
    All of my new pings are getting alot of red in them, should I set my timers for less time on?
    (I just watered before the photo, I let them dry out slightly before watering)



    Thank you
    Steve

    if a lot have this colour red or pink , may be too much UV ,but is not a problem .

    Looks happy to me. A lot of pings will present nice red colors when under strong enough light. I keep mine about 10-12" under a 4 bulb t5ho fixture.

    Here are the rest of the pings in this tray.
    Under the 4 bulb t5ho fixture at 12" below
    Lights are on 11 hours a day.
    These are all about 3-4 weeks new to me, shipped bare roots.

    I think your light is perfect, those are some really nice-looking pings.

    for me it is OK.
    If you want to give less light,move away the source .

    They all look good with nice red colour. For me, I usually reduce the light a bit for a bit faster growing and larger leaves.
