How does one bring out the intense reds of Pogostemon stellatus, colors like that of Jay's and Amano's?





Mine stays yellow most of the time. On a good day, this is about as red as it gets. Not complaining really, but would like better. :biggrin:



I've tried dosing a lot of traces but not much improvements in colors unfortunately. I've also tried lowering NO3; and it rewarded me with crumbled tips. :x So, how do Amano and Jay achieve these intense colors? They really are pretty.

Thanks for the touch up Edward; but in real life, the plant is pink :oops: whereas the ones in Jay/Amano's photos have definite signs of red and deep magenta colorations.

...or am I seeing something that's not there?
