    Miranda yellowing?

    I gave it more light, and its getting red. It seems like my green is also yellowing some though? Any ideas? Its about 6" from the cfl.

    Its not quite as yellow as it appears. The picture is a little off.

    my first thought was too much light, but its a good 6 inches from the lights. I have two 55w cfl's that provide light to all of my plants. All are about 6-7" away. Well hopefully if yours had a yellow tint too then this might be normal as they start the reddening process.

    Mine was growing in full sun and as the leaf developed it started as green, went to that yellow, then went on through deeper yellow, orange, then to red, not unlike a sunset. I wouldn't worry about it.

    if the tips start to brown on a new leaf then id start to worry, otherwise sounds all good to me.

    my miranda is under 4 t-5 High Output bulbs about a foot away, it seems to like it , the leaves turn red like yours , and it makes quite nice pitchers for n. miranda, actually some of the nicest pitchers in my intermediate grow shelf.
    are the lights i see in the photo with the miranda the ones it is grown in , if so it could use more light IMO.
