Because I wasn't getting any blooms, about three weeks ago I moved my B. nodosa and B. Little Stars from the end of my t5 light fixture to the center of the fixture, tips of the leaves about 3 inches from the bulbs. Within days, anything facing the light turned red. I understand this is because of the increased light, but it was also my understanding that the red would eventually fade. This has not happened yet. If anything the red continues to get deeper, to the point where the light facing surface of some of the leaves don't look even remotely green anymore. Texture of the leaves remains the same...there is no wrinkling, yellowing, or browning of tips, and the roots still appear white (green tips) and healthy. The parts of the leaves not directly exposed to the light remain a nice mid-light green.
When if ever can I expect the red to fade? Should I move the plants farther from the light? Is there anything else that should be looking at?
