    One of my spatulata pots, for reference.

    That pot hasn't been fed in ages, so that helps! The lights are nothing too special - two dual-lamp 48" T8 fixtures per plant shelf, with 6500k / 2750 lumen bulbs. The plants sit between roughly 3 and 6 inches of the lights, and get 15 hours under them a day. Those with a natural tendency towards redder hues tend to go very red indeed, particularly if they aren't fed often, but I have other spatulata varieties that don't. I love the red ones though, so I try to find whatever excuse I can to show them off

    This is the same variety ("Kanto"), but better fed. The plants in the pic I shared earlier in the thread were propagated by leaf cutting from these plants (my first generation of them, started from seed a couple of years back).
