The CobKits are about 15" away from the plants themselves, but are definitely powerful enough to get good coloring.Do you have a bit more information on these lights? Such as the wattage or amount of LED modules you are using? Unless I searched wrong, I see that the cob leds are discrete LED units that you had to mount yourself? I want to see how to change my distance/wattage to match your conditions.
The soil conditions seem similar to mine. I've always wondered if excess peat would change growth coloration due to the pH levels, but I haven't seen any difference between 0-peat cuttings vs peat-heavy cuttings. Actually, the pots with just pure sphagnum/perlite are now my favorite since I can easily tell how dry the pots are. The peat/sandy pots are always kind of heavy so it's hard to judge just by holding the pot if it's dry.

So maybe there's a 3rd person here with the same plant that we can compare with? Mine also came like super-green, but colored up real fast under my lights. However, at least for my other cephs, I find that older pitchers grown under different lighting never color up fully or color up the same, so I'm looking forward to more new ones that sprout under my care.
I think I have a second growth point buried under the main one in mine, but I'm too scared to try dividing anything at the moment. I usually repot all my plants, even cephs, but for this one (and a couple other large rare clones) I just left it in the original pot.
