All of my Acans that have dark blues in them have turned a sky blue color. I know that LEDs can do this but I was wondering what people have done to both prevent or fix the color morphing. BTW my best Acan was under an overhang! It still changed color.

Any radion3 people feel like chiming in?

I use led light and I feel like when my acans start losing color I need to feed them more and keep my nitrates a bit higher. It typically means my nitrates are down close to 0.

Good nutrients and target low light (70 par) at low wavelength e.g. 420nm. T5 works best
