Hi everybody, I’m new here and new in this wonderful hobby.
After putting my plants under the Arcadia Led 51W (10-20cm) two weeks ago many of them start becoming red.
All Cephalotus (which is great cause in the nature they do it) but also N. mira, N. talagensis and overall N. burbidgeae. Plants look great and since this effect hasn’t come to all plants I could think that it’s the genetic of those plants, and that it is not bad. Simply put, they show their best. But on the other hand, it begins looking a little artificial or bizarre. Nepenthes red, you know (being almost always green).
I guess it’s not a symptom of sunburn cause there’s no sun but a artificial light. But is it bad or dangerous? Should I increase distance? Right know there is between 10k Lux and 20k Lux for all plants, which are the ranges I have always read they must be. (PAR should be somewhere between 300-600). And at the same time, it’s the same quantity as they were in shade conditions in a greenhouse for example. So I could think it’s not dangerous but natural conditions.
