    Hi, you might want to clarify what you are actually asking for advice on. If you're asking how to grow red plants, more details on (1) the type of red plant you want to grow and (2) if you've attempted or failed at growing reds before would be helpful. Your question right now is very broad, so making it more specific would allow us to give you better answers.

    I think he wants to know what type of light he needs..(?) You need at least a light with reds in the spectrum obviously red plants reflect red light :) The other thing would be good co2 and good nutrients.. some plants get redder with nutrient limitations other would benefit from stronger light.. Dennis Wong got an excellent youtube vid on the subject.
