Hygrophillia new shoots

    Ok so I've had my hygro for close to a month now it's rooted and doing awesome I haven't added any root tabs yet so I'm happy with the growth and how this plant is looking in my tank. I got home tonight and noticed on the main stems that are directly under the light they have a brown to red tinge from the centre and base of each new leaf.

The lfs only had them listed as hygrophillia so I'm not to sure what exact species this is.

    I'm wanting to get some hygrophillia polysperma (sunset hygro) and mix it in and get a nice contrast eventually with these guys. I have wisteria and chain sword blooming and also some rotala Walachii which is growing surprisingly as it was more of an experiment and what started out with 5 big stalks now that they're rooted is 10 solid ones that are giving a bushy feel.

    To answer your question about the coloring, yes that is normal.
