One is an adelae (medium/large) - it turned burgundy under the 6500K's. Its newer leaves have some dew but the lower leaves don't (as expected) - the dew on it is barely noticeable.
The other is a capensis red - never produced much dew, hasn't grown a single new stalk.
Between these two I wondered if I was using the wrong mix of bulbs.
The two capensis narrows thrived under the 6500K's (new stalks like mad, all dewy), but since the mix with GE plant and aquarium (only 3 days ago) instead of all 6500's they have lost most of their dew (as in, 90%). Temp of 82ish and humidity of 80-90% has not changed.
Would eating 5 or 6 flightless fruit flies be a factor? I didn't even think of this.
