in my 10g tank, I have a ton of different colored, different shaped plants, but they all of them are growing in to become the same shade of green. For instance my Ludwigia arcuata, Rotala macrandra, and Rotala wallichii are all growing really well (they grow fast and look very healthy), but they just aren't even close to the color that they should be. I suspect my lighting might be the reason?

I currently have a 36w PC (half 6700K half 10000K i think), and I'm running pressurized CO2. I also use EI dosing (courtesy of Green Leaf Aquariums:red_mouth) with Flourish iron and a little extra Potassium. Why are my plants just not that amazing red color that some people get? What can i do to get them that way?
