View Full Version : Hygrophilia Polysperma Sunset?

ok this could be one for Jess. My Hygrophilia Polysperma is in my 7.5g with better lighting than before and its been growing really well. Now the top leaves on all the different stems are changing colour ( see pics ) Is this the sunset thing? I dont think they're dying as the leaves are still strong and keep growing.

I'm really sorry mods if this is in the wrong plant section.

From everything I've seen and read about this plant that is perfectly normal. This happens as they get closer to the light.

thats what i thought but its happening to all of them even the baby ones which are 12 inches from the light.

nice plants..........:19:

hmm, could even be a new growth thing, they may green up more the older the leaves get. Hard to help on this one, since that plant is a federal noxious weed over here so I have no first hand experience with it.

Don't panic... all is well :19: The top leaves will slowly turn redder & redder in different hues from pink to brightish red... when you top the plant ..then put the shorter redder tops in front of the green (where the chopped off plant grows up also turns red/pink again) and you end up with a beautiful cascade of greens/pinks/reds - just georgeous...

Will post a piccie if you want one xx
