    Question Epc Rene Marques 'Tyler'

    One of my favorites, I like the color combination and the elegant shape of the blooms. Only five blooms on this one, but I'm still happy with it.

    The one thing I notice with this is that under the fluorescent lights the leaves got a very purplish cast. When taken out of the grow area to my living room the leaves turned right back to green. The plant didn't seem stressed, but was still wondering if I might be giving it too much light. Anyone else see this on theirs?

    I keep mine in bright light so that there is a definite purple tinge to the edge of the leaves. It needs the bright light to set the blooms.

    You can find this one, once in a blue moon....in the big box store with baggie babies. I found mine as a baggie baby...so far though mine isn't thriving. Sometimes it takes me a couple tries to get these right.
    Lovely flowers....thanks for sharing!
