Black tips on leaves, red blotching on leaves & flowerstalk

My pot of capensis seems to be in trouble. My typical seems to be suffering and so are the others. The alba is the least effected. I am trying to figure out how to solve the issue. The top moss on the pot is deceiving. The pot is always moist because I am using sphagnum peat moss as a main media and LFS as the top layer. I am wondering if I am actually overwatering them? I have experienced this red blotching before but have never figured out what it has meant. I don't know if it is too dry around the plants or what. It is definitely not because of the lights I am using though.

your plants look fine. It is the time of year where, right after flowering, they go into a mega growth spurt, so it will be making tons of new leaves soon.
