    Green D. burmannii close to the light, red far away?

    I had a pot of D. burmannii right under metal halide and it was green, and I moved it down to make space for something else and it turned red. What's up with that? Can anyone explain why it's red in less light?

    It it matters it's a 250 watt Ushio... 5500K I think.

    May not be light related. I know there is a fungus that is known to make plants go red...

    Really? Well crap lol. The whole plant isn't red, just around the petioles. It's pretty lol. It's flowering.

    I sprayed the whole tank with fungicide the other day when I cleaned, too

    Hey JLAP, what fungicide were you using in the tank? I'm still trying to settle on a good CP-safe one...
