Does new growth for these varieties grow in pink or green?

I have P. Weser and P. Aphrodite, but both have new growth coming in green. I'll be adding more lights in, but are there other reasons that might cause them to grow in green?

My Weser is too young for me to know, but Aphrodite definitely colors up. I'd call it a pinkish purple. It requires good light to do that. In the case of Aphrodite, I do not think that one requires UV, as mine color up under LED shop lights.

Aphrodite yeah, doesn't matter. Weser colored up for me when i had it. Never could get Cyclosecta too, I prefer lower light conditions,
