Leaf Color Comments
LEAF COLOR: As Indication of Health Phalaenopsis and a few similar genera should have leaves firm, succulent, medium to dark green; others should be like grass touched lightly with the sun, a medium yellow green. A72-118 0
LEAF COLOR: Ideal Grassgreen is about the right intensity; very dark green indicates too little light; yellow-green possibly too much; plump, hard, upright leaves show the right amount; bent-over, weak, overly succulent leaves show too dim light; red or purple pigmentation in some genera show good light. A73-490 0
LEAF COLOR: Unusual If the leaves of young cattleya plants are reddish or purplish it only means the light is bright but is not harmful. A81-266 0
