My buddy is growing blyxa, hc, l aromatica, and 3 varieties of rotalas (singapore, macandra green, and green). Believe it or not, they are all the same color. Inside the tank and out. He's got MTS as a substrate and doses EI + iron and the tank just grows in a "similar" shade of green. We share many of the same plants and the major difference between our tanks is the light. Inside and outside my tank, all of the plants have distinct contrasting colors. Looks like your mileage varies.
