    Many of the stunning scapes here feature Bylxa with a wonderful reddish hue.

    The Blyxa in my 60P (CO2 suppl, 150 watt MH 8000k ADA bulb) grows well, pearls abundantly and continuously produces little white flowers, but mostly stays green with a little hint of pink.

    I am missing something in my ferts? I had been using the ADA line - now at Step 2, Brighty Special Lights, Brighty K, etc.
