I've had this plant for almost a month now. P.Florian
It's 12" under T5 HO lights. Do you think it's getting too much light?
All of my new pings are getting alot of red in them, should I set my timers for less time on?
(I just watered before the photo, I let them dry out slightly before watering)

Looks happy to me. A lot of pings will present nice red colors when under strong enough light. I keep mine about 10-12" under a 4 bulb t5ho fixture.

Here are the rest of the pings in this tray.
Under the 4 bulb t5ho fixture at 12" below
Lights are on 11 hours a day.
These are all about 3-4 weeks new to me, shipped bare roots.

They all look good with nice red colour. For me, I usually reduce the light a bit for a bit faster growing and larger leaves.
