Here's a pic of a pot of Maroon Monsters grown under waaaaay too much indoor lighting. I had a blurple light and was giving the plant about a dli of 50. It essentially bleached the live sphagnum top dressing and caused the plant to grow stunted, deeply colored leaves.

Yep, my other ones outside look like that as well. I just made a mistake and put the indoor pot under way too much light. Figured I'd share that experience with the group. :-)

Why do you say it looks stunted? It looks quite healthy to me.

The size of the leaves shrank way down after I put it under the lights. They were much longer previously.
