    Unhappy

    i recently got a bunch of D. capensis "red" seedling(thanks Crystal!) and they started to go orange under my lights. well...now they are back to green. does the red form breed true from seed? or do i need to just wait?

    Not enough light there bro. Give them puppies some sun and they will redden up I do believe. That or a LOT more light than you are giving them.

    Alex, what is the temperature of the area where you grow your D. capensis "red" (i.e. being under 100W of CF)?

    Is the CF actually 100Watts or just the equivalent of 100Watts?
