    You got some strange hygrolon there. Don't look anything like the stuff I have. Maybe an older batch.

    no, subulifolia is white and green, the red is of environmental cause, The red pigment produced is a like sunblock, it absorbs extra solar radiation, the pigment is anthocyanin, occurs when plants are grown bright, but not to the point of burning, Im guess cause its seedling, it occured where I work, as I haven't had it for long
