    BRT leaves lost pigment over night

    I’m not exactly sure why, but my BRT’s leaves lost a lot of their green color from the time i went to bed, to the time i woke up this morning. Nothing feels overly dry so i am not sure what is happening! If anyone knows the cause or if this is problematic, please let me know!

    I decided to create this thread to record the progression of a BRT from seed, one from a batch of 20 or so. Some culled, most given as gift. I sowed in sand in the winter of 2018, it sprouted in the beginning of October. After 10 days it was going well. Shade, humidity and watering. In...
