Ricordea yuma self propagation

Postby Wakareefer » Sun 03 Aug, 2014 3:04 pm

I've just had had one of my lite green rics (nothing special) produce a new head just to the side of it, the new head
Is an ultra bright green Colour, will this Colour fade to the same Colour as it's parent or can new heads have different
Colours than its parent coral.

It will be much like its parent. Depending, it'll also probably drop off eventually.

As it grows the density of Zoox seems to drop off and that's what makes the colour so intense.

You can help the intensity by placing it in a place where lighting is a little lower
Did you search RTAW Reefpedia B4 asking your question?
