Does the growing under light make them paler, or is your A. palaestinum
actually red rather than dark almost-black.  The full shot you posted looks
quite pale, so I am wondering whether it was made lighter by lack of actual
sunshine?  My plants of the same open pretty much pure black, fading to a
deep dark red-purple/almost black as they age.  That is why yours stood out
so much to me and I thought it was worth asking.  Having never grown that
sort of thing under lights I have no idea what that would do to the colour.
