What causes the new growth to be pale green? I fertilize every time I water with 7-7-7. This one was directly on the north windowsill and was doing great but it kept getting rained on so i had to move it.
When I moved it initially, it was just farther from the window. A couple weeks later, I put it under a fluorescent light. It has only been a couple weeks under the light, at most.
Flowers were profuse while on the windowsill. The new flower stalks eventually grew in very short, and not particularly attractive. I initially assumed it was because it was the second flush.
But more and more of the plant is turning this pale yellow-green, starting from the center outward. So new growth is that color, and has not darkened as I had expected.
The only thing I can figure, is that ALL of the growth from the time I brought it home from the greenhouse is a lighter color. The center is also tighter.
I liked the way it looked before- darker leaves, loose center, tall flower stalks.
Anything I can do to encourage that?
