Why Our Samolus Parviflorus Red is Still a Bit Green?

When you receive your Samolus Parviflorus Red, you may notice that it's still a bit green. This is completely normal and is a result of the plant farming process. We use high nitrate fertilizers with lower light to increase our growth rates, while preventing algae. Don't worry, your plant will turn a beautiful shade of red in no time!

How to Get Your Samolus Parviflorus Red

To get your Samolus Parviflorus Red to turn red, you'll need to provide it with the right conditions. Here's what you should do:

  • Provide adequate lighting: Samolus Parviflorus Red requires bright, direct light to turn red. Make sure your aquarium has enough lighting to support the plant's photosynthesis process.

  • Keep the water temperature stable: Sudden changes in temperature can cause stress to the plant, which can affect its color. Make sure to keep the water temperature in your aquarium between 68-80°F.

  • Avoid sudden changes in pH: Like temperature, sudden changes in pH can also cause stress to the plant. It's best to maintain a stable pH between 6.0-7.5.

By following these tips, your Samolus Parviflorus Red will turn red in no time and add a pop of color to your aquatic ecosystem."
