    The entire tentacle should color up red. If it had color when you recieved it, but lost it since then you might not be providing enough light. How do you have it growing? Under lights?

    The tentacles are just the hair like structures.

    Here is a couple pics of mine.

    The only actual way to tell if they're a certain variety is to give them as much light as possible. I would say at least 80 watts just to color them up nicely. Though, that's just my opinion.

    what type of 50 watt bulb? if it is a normal light bulb that is no good, you need either fluorescent or compact fluorescent.

    Is that it? Those are not fluorescent. They are a type of incandescent.
