From what i have read, red plants grow far slower than other plants.

Does anyone know why? I have a 20 gallon tank with CO2 and all my
plants are growing well except for the red boys. I have a couple in a
more shaded area, but i have one out in the open. They all seem to be
losing their leaves rather quickly. any suggestions?????

What type of lighting do you have, and are you using any ferts?


Red plants don't grow any quicker or slower than green plants.

What species of plant are we talking about here?
