I recently added three stems of dwarf lobelia cardinalis to my tank in the foreground. What I noted was the much of the received growth had a reddish/pinkish underside and the leaf tops were a light, dull green. The new growth is all light green with no reddisk undersides. Much of the original growth has since fallen off, but the new growth looks nice and healthy.
