I've found that regular Fe supplement, strong light and a soil containing
substrate all help to enhance the red coloration of plants. I'd suggest
using a chelated Fe supplement at least twice a week. I've noticed a
definite improvement in growth rates since doubling the frequency that
I add Flourish. I presume the strong lighting and many plants consume
or oxidize the available Fe in a few days.
