well it seems to be an inbetween plant for me
on my 29 gallon which has now become low tech, it turns red with smaller leaves with a 14 hours photoperiod
on my 75 gallon it turns red because there is an abundance of light
put in medium lighting with a sorter photoperiod, the plant stayed green with some pinkish tint on it..
i've noticed that the older leaves will not change color, they have to come out red, unlike some plants that can turn red due to too much light, this one has to grow red to have color, if the leaves come out green, it'll stay green
