I think I read that the fantasy are unstable which means they change, I don't remember reading anything about how to get one to fantasy more, it's their make up and once that changes, you can't do much about it.

I hope someone has a better answer. tish

You might try growing it cooler, on the bottom shelf.

Misting might also help. A change of humidity could add deeper color to some plants. Maybe it will make spots on these--and maybe you won't want water spots on your flowers!

I dont have a bottom shelf...I just have the one shelf.I do mist several times a day....I want a garden window in my kitchen..I have some small plants of it down in front of a basement window..I think I will leave them down there till they bloom..thanks...:0)
