I'm using a 30watt (theoretical 150watt output) LED with a strong humidifier in a 10 gallon tank. Three of my plants (Gaya, Ventricosa, and Zakriana x Tiveyi) have turned bright red, including the smallest baby plants. I've done hours of research and gotten a lot of mixed opinions.
A lot of people say deep red blush in the leaves is healthy and shows the plant is getting ample light. Others have said it's sunburn and the light should be moved farther away. One extra variable is that I put them under this light immediately after receiving them, so they may be shocked and acclimating right now..
The light used to be 1 foot lower but I moved it up, I'm hoping the next set of leaves will accommodate for the strong light.
What's your opinion?
